Orthotopic liver transplantation has been an established medical therapy for almost any end-stage liver disease. In spite of improved survival rates following transplantation, acute or chronic allograft failure requiring hepatic retransplantation still occurs with an incidence of 9% to 22%. We experienced one case of anesthesia for liver retransplantation in 30-year-old male patient with posttransplantation hepatic arterial thrombosis. He had taken primary liver transplantation due to hepatocelluar carcinoma 15days before retransplantation. The operation was finished successfully after 10hours of anesthesia with anhepatic time of 65 minutes. Careful attention was paid to eletrolyte balance, blood coagulation function as well as cardiovascular and respiratory function. Hemodynamic value was relatively stable throughout the operation and postoperative mechanical ventilatory support was required for about 15 hours.
Key Words: Liver: transplantation; retransplantation
