Abstract

Small-for-size-liver grafts (SFSG) in adult transplant recipients have elevated risk of graft failure, limiting its application in clinical liver transplantation. Relevant preclinical model of SFSG is lacking. Relevant to deceased-donor split liver transplant and living-donor liver transplant in adult recipients, in this study, we present our initial characterization of SFSG model using monosegments of a discarded human donor liver.
