Abstract

Background. Living donor liver transplantation has been a new light of hope for patients with end-stage liver failure on the cadaveric waiting list. However, living donor liver transplantation still has ethical problems which cannot be overcome. Exposure of healthy donor candidates to major surgery which can be fatal is the largest of these ethical problems. In this study, we aimed to determine our rate of complications associated with surgery in donors who underwent right lobe donor hepatectomy.
