Diffuse portal vein thrombosis is considered a relative contraindication to liver transplant in some centers. The present study defines several techniques using caval inflow to deal with diffuse thrombosis in patients undergoing liver transplantation. Use of these techniques may help certain patients to undergo liver transplantation that would not otherwise be candidates. This study showed good results using these techniques with good graft and patient survival.
