abstract
Auxiliary transplantation of the liver leads to functional competition between donor and recipient liver: Atrophy of one, regeneration of the other liver. This mechanism can be contra-acted by modification of the graft vascular supply. The aim of the study is to study the time course of the atrophy and regeneration of the graft during a prolonged period after different vascular graft inflow through surgical intervention.
