Abstract

Orthotopic liver transplantation is the most effective treatment for end-stage liver diseases in adults and children; however, the lack of convenient donors is the main restrictive factor existing in this particular area. The paucity of infant and child donors remains a worldwide problem, especially in developing countries where the number of adult cadavers is also very limited. The desperate search for organ sources has led surgeons to transplant a portion of the liver from an adult into a child, and this approach has been accepted by some centers [4, 6, 9].
