Pediatric Issues: Split Liver/Living Liver Donation

Kyle Jackson, Benjamin Philosophe and Andrew Cameron

Abstract

In this chapter, we review the technical nuances and donor-recipient matching principles of the adult-pediatric split liver donation and living donor transplant process. Specific attention is paid to the safe conduct of the procedures, which in the case of living donation, have high stakes consequences for both the recipient and the donor.
