Abstract

Background. Incidental celiac artery stenosis has been cited as an exclusion criterion for adult donor right hepatectomy. Methods. We report our experience involving right donor hepatectomy performed in the presence of isolated high-grade (greater than 80%) celiac trunk stenosis in two young healthy and asymptomatic adult living liver donors. Results. The immediate postoperative course was complicated by a superficial wound infection in one patient and a transient median nerve palsy caused by intraoperative positioning, which spontaneously resolved, in the second patient. Both were discharged within 7 to 10 days postoperatively. They are doing well at 1 year follow-up without any complaints and have both returned to 100% full employment. Conclusions. Our results show that right donor hepatectomy can be safely performed in the presence of significant celiac artery stenosis. However, careful long-term follow-up will be required to monitor for any future progression of mesenteric vascular disease.
