Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of the study is to access the prevalence of accessory right inferior hepatic veins and
their relevant signifi cance in liver transplantation.

Materials and Methods: A retrospective study was done in which the CT of 82 potential liver transplant
candidates between January 2012 and March 2013 were reviewed. The presence of the accessory right inferior
hepatic vein was examined; the diameters of the accessory inferior hepatic veins and the distance between the
point where they open into the inferior vena cava on the coronal plane and to the right hepatic vein-inferior vena
cava junction was measured.

Results: Out of 82 patients, 42 (51%) had accessory right inferior hepatic veins. Right accessory inferior
hepatic veins larger than 3 mm were detected in 23 (28%) patients. The distance of these veins to the right
hepatic vein-inferior vena cava junction was more than 4 cm in 13 (15%) patients.

Conclusion: The precise preoperative knowledge of accessory right inferior hepatic veins is essential in
living donor liver transplantation.
