ABSTRACT: Recent studies have shown that the inclusion of a noninvasive and low-cost functional test such as hepatobiliary scintigraphy is considered more reliable than volume alone to predict posthepatectomy liver failure especially in light of new liver regeneration techniques. We herein reported the unique case of a 40-year-old man who underwent heterotopic liver transplantation of segments 2 and 3 in the splenic fossa after splenectomy for unresectable colorectal liver metastases. 99mTc-mebrofenin hepatobiliary scintigraphy combined with SPECT/CT was performed after liver transplantation to monitor graft function and regeneration before removal of the native liver.

Abstract

ABSTRACT: Recent studies have shown that the inclusion of a noninvasive and low-cost functional test such as hepatobiliary scintigraphy is considered more reliable than volume alone to predict posthepatectomy liver failure especially in light of new liver regeneration techniques. We herein reported the unique case of a 40-year-old man who underwent heterotopic liver transplantation of segments 2 and 3 in the splenic fossa after splenectomy for unresectable colorectal liver metastases. 99mTc-mebrofenin hepatobiliary scintigraphy combined with SPECT/CT was performed after liver transplantation to monitor graft function and regeneration before removal of the native liver.
