Abstract

We report a case of percutaneous transhepatic stent placement for the treatment of hepatic venous outflow obstruction after extracorporeal hepatic resection and autotransplantation. A 63-year-old woman with a large mass in the liver was asymptomatic with no hepatic virus infection. Because the tumor was unresectable by conventional means, we used extracorporeal hepatic resection and autotransplantation for operation. Two days after surgery, hepatic venous outflow obstruction of the right and right inferior hepatic veins was suspected on computed tomography. After failure of the transjugular approach, hepatic venous stenting was performed successfully via the percutaneoustranshepatic approach.
