From 1989 to 1999, 43 orthotopic live rtransplantations (OLT) in40 patients (3 retransplantations) were performed in our Department. The most common indications for OLT were noninflammatory, primary cholestatic liver diseases and postinflammatory liver cirrhosis. Fourty OLTs were done for elective indications, three- on emergency basis, because of fulminant liver failure. The majority of transplantations was performed with classical technique with the excision of retrohepatic vena cava and routine use of the extracorporeal veno-venous bypass. Only in 4 patients the piggyback technique was used and performed without temporary portocaval anastomosis. All 3 patients transplanted for fulminant liver failure died in the perioperative period. Twenty four patients are still alive and well, the longest period of observation exceeding 5 years.
