28 Summary 1. There is a correlation between the portal vein pressure and small-for-size syndrome. 2. Suboptimal graft (aged donor, long warm ischemic time) shows poor graft tolerability for portal inflow (poor compliance). 3. To obtain the maximum functional graft volume along with the maximum donor safety, the algorithm for the selection of donor operation is useful. 4. To obtain the optimal outflow reconstruction of MHV and RHV, a modified technique using an anterior patch graft has been introduced. 5. With the use of the modification of portal inflow (splenic artery ligation, permanent portocaval shunt), “very small-for-size” transplantation might be possible.
