Brief Summary:
This 1-year project is intended to study the hemodynamic changes of poratal and hepatic artery during living related liver transplantation. We hypothesize that after right hepatectomy for living related liver transplatation, portal vein overflow will change the remnant liver contour and result in liver hyperplasia.

Condition or disease
Right Hepatectomy

Detailed Description:
We use CT as tools to reconstruct 3D images of portal vein and hepatic artery before and one month after operation. The images are transferred to CAD and computer simulation is performed.

Study Type : Observational
Enrollment : 10 participants
Observational Model: Defined Population
Observational Model: Natural History
Time Perspective: Longitudinal
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Hepatic Hemodynamic Changes and Simulation Before /After Living-Related Liver Transplantation in Donors/Recipients
Study Start Date : September 2005
