Abstract: Background/Aims: The existence of similarities in the hepatic vascular anatomy among blood relatives (BR) have never been studied before. Since in living donor liver transplantation (LDLT), the donor may be a BR, an opportunity is available to assess whether there are similarities in the hepatic vascular anatomy among BR. Methodology: We conducted an analysis of 61 LDLT during the period from January 2004 to August 2008. Based on preoperative multi-detector computed tomography data, the hepatic arteries (HA) were classified into 4 groups, the portal vein (PV) was classified into 2 groups and the right hepatic vein (RHV) was classified into 2 groups. The data of each group were then compared between BR (n=47) and NBR (n=14). Results: With regard to the HA anatomy, 30 cases (68%) of the BR donor matched that of the recipient and 9 cases (69%) in the NBR donor. The PV anatomy was matched in 41 cases (87%) of BR donor and 11 cases (79%) in the NBR donor. The anatomy of the RHV was matched in 25 cases (53%) in the BR donor and 9 cases (64%) in NBR donor. There was no significant difference in all contexts. Conclusions: No similarities were therefore observed in the hepatic vascular anatomy among BR.
