AbstractIn spite of early adoption of the brain death legislation, and all efforts at promoting deceased donation, various social, economic and cultural factors have acted as road blocks to the furthering of deceased donor liver transplantation (DDLT) in most Asian societies. On the other hand, Asian liver transplant centers have been the pioneers, innovators, and technical advancement catalysts for the world to follow, especially with regards to living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). With some high volume centers performing more than 200 LDLTs a year with good outcomes in the donor and recipient, techniques to expand the living donor pool have also been adopted like ABO-incompatible, paired exchange and dual lobe living donor liver transplants. Although large multicenter, and registry data as regards safety and outcomes of minimally invasive donor hepatectomy are awaited, expert centers have pioneered, and now regularly perform purely laparoscopic and robotic living donor hepatectomies, especially in Korea. © 2020 IJS Publishing Group Ltd
