Portal hyperperfusion is detrimental to small-for-size livers (SFSLs) in liver transplantation. Surgical techniques modulating portal inflow provide the most effective approach to protect the SFSL. In this report, we describe a technique creating an allograft portacaval shunt that effectively attenuates portal inflow without a requirement of extensive surgical dissection in the recipient during the transplantation.
