Abstract

In situ split of the liver was performed in a heart-beating cadaveric organ donor for the first time in the U.S.A. by two geographically distant transplant centers. The procedure, initiated by a transplant team in Oklahoma City, was a joint project of the transplant teams from Oklahoma City and New York City. The in situ split resulted in two liver grafts. A left graft (left lateral segment) which was transplanted into a 7-year-old pediatric recipient in Oklahoma City and a right graft (right lobe and segment IV) which was transplanted into a 52-year-old adult recipient in New York City. Initial graft function was excellent in the two patients. The adult recipient was discharged home 10 days after the transplant and is doing well. The pediatric recipient died two and a half months later from multi-system organ failure. The recently introduced in situ split technique provides two excellent liver grafts from one donor and enhances sharing of liver grafts between transplant centers.
