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.

Right Hepatectomy

Estimated Enrollment: 10
Study Start Date: September 2005
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.

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria: - Informed adult-to adult living donor underwent right lobectomy
