Abstract

Donor scarcity is among the greatest concerns in the transplantation community. Dividing a liver graft theoretically offers a double benefit for candidates on the waiting list. Split liver transplantation entails a higher logistic and technical complexity that is extensively compensated, not only with an increase in the accessibility for child and adult candidates on the liver transplant waiting list, but also acceptable survival results.
