There might be discordance between inter-lobar borders of the main portal fissure (MPF) using the middle hepatic vein (MHV) and of the portal segmentation. Forty-five living donors who underwent right hepatectomy for the adult recipients from 2007 to 2011 in a tertiary hospital were retrospectively analyzed. The donors were classified into conventional right hepatectomy along the MPF (cRL group, n = 26) and modified right hepatectomy along right-side shifted transection plane from the MPF (mRL group, n = 19). The cRL donors had higher postoperative peak level of INR (1.84 vs. 1.62; P = 0.022), and bilirubin (3.37 mg/dl vs. 2.74 mg/dl; P = 0.065) than the mRL donors. cRL donors experienced greater depression of platelet count (144 per nL vs. 168 per nL; P = 0.042) and enlargement of splenic volume (52% vs. 37%; P = 0.025) than mRL donors for 7 days after hepatectomy. The regeneration of the left lateral sector was more accelerated in the cRL donors than the mRL donors for postoperative 3 months (148% vs. 84%; P = 0.015). There were no differences in the post-transplant graft function, incidence of complications, and graft survival rates between the two groups of recipients (P > 0.05). This study suggests that the conventional right hepatectomy along the MHV might increase donor risk by reducing parenchymal liver volume of the segment IV.
