Endovascular thromboaspiration with neurointerventional devices for early hepatic artery thrombosis after split liver transplant


We report the case of a 38-year-old woman who underwent orthotopic ‘split’ liver transplant, complicated by hepatic artery thrombosis on the first postoperative day. The patient was successfully treated with an endovascular approach by mechanical thromboaspiration of the hepatic artery, using neurovascular devices, angioplasty and stenting at the site of the surgical anastomosis.
