Background. Despite technical developments in transplantation surgery, complete portal vein thrombosis still remains a challenge for restoration of adequate portal vein inflow. Renoportal or varicoportal anastomosis provides an effective alternative solution for patients with complete portal vein thrombosis. This study describes our experience with renoportal and varicoportal anastomosis during liver transplantation.
