Portal vein thrombosis is a rare surgical complication following liver transplantation, which remains a cause of graft loss and death. We describe here the treatment of portal vein thrombosis following living donor liver transplantation using an extended left lobe graft. The patient was treated with a Gore-Tex vascular jump graft extra-anatomically interposed between the recipient superior mesenteric vein and the donor umbilical vein. This technique allowed the hepatic hilum to be left untouched and supplied suitable blood flow to the hepatic allograft. Our experience suggests that this innovative technical solution can be helpful in the effort to rescue cases of hepatic allograft with vascular complications.
