AIM: To investigate the long-term results of liver transplantation (LT) for non-acetaminophen fulminant hepatic failure (FHF). METHODS: Over a 20-year period, 29 FHF patients underwent cadaveric whole LT. Most frequent causes of FHF were hepatitis B virus and drug-related (not acetaminophen) liver failure. All surviving patients were regularly controlled at the out-patient clinic and none was lost to follow-up. Mean follow-up was 101 mo. RESULTS: One month, one-, five- and ten-year patient survival was 79%, 72%, 68% and 68%, respectively. One month, one-, five- and ten-year graft survival was 69%, 65%, 51% and 38%, respectively. Six patients needed early (< 2 mo) retransplantation, four for primary non-function, one for early acute refractory rejection because of ABO blood group incompatibility, and one for a malignant tumor found in the donor. Two patients with hepatitis B FHF developed cerebral lesions peri-transplantion: One developed irreversible and extensive brain damage leading to death, and one suffered from deep deficits leading to continuous medical care in a specialized institution. CONCLUSION: Long-term outcome of patients transplanted for non-acetaminophen FHF may be excellent. As the quality of life of these patients is also particularly good, LT for FHF is clearly justified, despite lower graft survival compared with LT for other liver diseases. (C) 2007 The WJG Press.

Introduction. There is some controversy on the necessity of venous reconstruction of the right paramedian sector (segments V and VIII) during right lobe living related liver transplantation. In this report we describe the evolution of posttransplant graft function in five consecutive right lobe recipients without specific drainage of the right paramedian sector. Material and methods. The technique of common right hepatectomy for right lobe graft harvesting and transplantation did not include the middle hepatic vein in the graft. The mean total ischemic time was 51 minutes (ranges: 35 to 64 minutes). The mean graft to recipient weight ratio was 1.35% +/- 0.15%. No patient developed small-for-size syndrome. Results. All patients showed a rise in transaminases with a maximum at postoperative day 2 (mean aspartate aminotransferase: 1067 +/- 432 IU/mL). Liver function improved rapidly, with coagulation normalized at postoperative day 5. Bilirubin decreased progressively to normalize in three patients at postoperative day 14. Ultrasonography and computed tomography demonstrated that the paramedian sector of the right liver was congested, a state that was temporary with normalization of the liver tests and congestion disappeared at follow-up. No complication was linked to congestion. Discussion. This series showed that in right lobe liver transplantation with a relatively large-size graft, reconstruction of the hepatic veins of the paramedian sector may not be necessary despite the induction of some degree of venous congestion. In smaller grafts, this congestion might be avoided by reconstruction of the large veins draining segments V and VIII. [less ▲]
