Analysis of long term outcomes of 194 consecutive left lateral segment grafts (LLS) including 94 living (LD) and 99 deceased (DD) donor grafts (1992 – 2017) with mean follow-up of 8.8±6.7 years was conducted. Comparison of recipient, donor, and operative characteristics were performed. Kaplan-Meier analysis used to compare overall patient/graft survival at 1, 5, and 10 years.
Primary diagnosis was biliary atresia (53%), metabolic disorders (15%), fulminant liver failure (8%), and malignancy (8%). Wait time from listing until transplant was 102±337 days for LD and 122±261 days for DD (p=0.67). Age at transplant was not significantly different at 2.0±2.2 years versus 2.4±2.6 years for LD and DD respectively (p=0.21). Warm and cold ischemia times were lower in the LD group (42±16 mins, 98±143 min) compared DD group (48±22 mins, 474±175 mins) (p<0.001). Donor liver mass was lower for living donor recipients (262±89g v.302±93g) (p=0.045). Significanlty more deceased donors were used for retransplantation. Biliary complications occurred in 11% (LD) vs. 14% (DD) (p=0.51). Hepatic artery (HAT) and portal venous thrombosis (PVT) rates were higher in the DD group (7% and 5% LD group (p=0.05,0.5) vs. 16% and 8% DD group (p=0.05,0.5)) The 1, 5, and 10 year graft survival was 91%, 88%, 85% for the LD group and 81%, 74%, 66% for the DD group (p=0.001). The overall patient survival at 1, 5, 10 years was 92%, 89%, 87% for the LD group vs. and 81%, 77%, 74% for the DD group (p=0.021).
Use of split grafts remains a viable option to meet the needs of the pediatric liver failure population with excellent long term outcomes. Our analysis shows improved graft and patient survival with living donor grafts.
