Contraindication of Left lobe liver transplant

Contraindication of Left lobe liver transplant

Q) Absolute contraindication for left lobe LDLT is
A. Trifurcation of the portal vein
B. Bifurcation of portal vein in the right lobe of the liver
C. Aberrant right hepatic artery
D. Right Posterior duct draining into left hepatic duct


ANSWER

Trifurcation of portal vein is not a contraindication of  left lobe liver transplant  as we will get a single portal vein on the left side

9k= Contraindication of Left lobe liver transplant
Portal vein

Bifurcation of portal vein in right lobe does not matter because we are leaving the right lobe behind

Again right aberrant artery does not matter because that segment is left behind

Right post duct draining into left duct gives rise to two ducts on the left or a single duct which is quite high.
