Abstract

Purpose of review The development of diffuse splanchnic venous thrombosis continues to be a challenging undertaking for patients waiting for liver transplantation, requiring the utilization of highly complex surgical techniques. The aim of this article is to review the status of multivisceral transplantation (MVT) in the setting of diffuse portomesenteric thrombosis. Recent findings Even though many anatomical reconstructions of the venous system have been proposed to revascularize the transplanted liver, there are only few articles describing the use of these techniques. Here we describe a succinct review of these alternatives with emphasis on MVT. Summary MVT is a complex procedure; however, it is the only one capable of reestablishing the venous anatomy and physiology of the abdominal cavity, resolving completely the effects of portal hypertension and the baseline disease.
