What to expect during Orthotopic Liver Transplantation

For our liver transplants we do go on bypass. Axillary vein, Femoral and Portal. Our main instruments are hemo stats, right angles, and scissors. Various silk ties, and 2 vessel loops. We occasionally use a stapler for the veins (60, or 45 ethicon) Crawford clamps for the vena cava, and a pediatric vascular clamp for the portal vein. 3-0 and 4-0 Prolene SH for the cava, 6-0 BV1 for vein, 7-0 Prolene BV1 for artery, and 6-0 PDS BV1 for biliary anastomoses. 5-0 Prolene C1 are usually for bleeders!
