Fig. 1. Illustration of the side-to-side unification technique used for portal vein (PV) reconstruction. A deep longitudinal incision was made at the “6 o’clock” direction of the graft PV and the “12 o’clock” direction of the recipient PV. Running sutures were then used to unify these two PVs. This technique creates an enlarged conduit from the superior mesenteric vein–splenic vein confluence to the hilar PV confluence.
