KUO-SHYANG, Jeng et al. Graft Calcification Caused by a Torsion of the Hepatic Vein after a Living-Related Donor Liver Transplantation. Ann. Hepatol. [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.1, pp.164-168. ISSN 1665-2681.

The torsion of vessels after liver transplantation rarely occurs. Likewise, calcification of a liver graft has seldom been reported. This report details a case which had torsion of the left hepatic vein on the seventh day after living-related donor liver transplantation. The torsion was reduced soon after re-exploration; however, congestion with partial necrosis of the graft occurred. On the follow-up imaging studies, some resolution of necrosis and graft regeneration were found, yet geographic calcification of the liver graft appeared. The patient died of pneumonia after 13 weeks, post-operation. The avoidance such torsion of vessels is necessary and important.
