Abstract

The article describes and illustrates the surgical techniques and the post-operative imaging anatomy in liver transplantation. Special attention is paid to the variant vascular and biliary anatomy that are important for surgical planning. Considering the ever-growing number of liver transplants performed and the key role that imaging plays in the pre-operative planning and post-operative assessment, it is important for the radiologist to be familiar with the surgical techniques and the normal post-operative appearance in these patients.
