Modified multivisceral (MMV) transplantation including the stomach, pancreaticoduodenal complex and intestine requires preservation of the left gastric and splenic arteries. The previously described techniques require division of the hepatic artery proximal to the gastroduodenal artery leaving the liver transplant team with a very short and small caliber vessel. To increase MMV graft availability and provide the liver transplant team with an appropriate quality vessel, we developed the following technique. We also describe two cases where we used this method to support the technical feasibility of this procedure.
