Abstract

The hepatic arterial blood supply is indispensable for the survival of the graft during liver transplantation. Inadequacies in the recipient hepatic artery mandate arterial reconstruction different from the preferred method of direct anastomosis. We report the use of the left gastric artery as an attractive alternative for reconstructing the arterial blood supply of a transplanted liver.
