AbstractThe major limitation for adult-to-adult living donor liver transplantation is the adequacy of the size of the graft that can be safely harvested from the donor. The present report describes a 22-year-old woman with stage 4 hepatic coma due to fulminant hepatic failure who was successfully treated using a small-for-size left lobe graft from her father. The graft weight was 0.6% of the recipient's body weight, or 25% of her ideal liver weight. Avoidance of warm ischemia, short cold ischemic time, and early treatment of rejection are important elements in optimizing small-for-size graft function. Since the left lobe represents 23-36% of the total liver volume of an adult, it is possible, in most cases, to harvest a left lobe graft of adequate size from a donor of similar size as the recipient.
