● Elective voluntary directed liver donation to a patient by a relative or friend, to overcome shortage of cadaveric organs
● Usually right-lobe transplants since left lobe grafts have inadequate volume
● Preliminary report suggests that biliary tract complications are common, are amenable to surgical intervention, donít adversely affect patient or graft survival (Hum Pathol 2001;32:814)
