This video details an orthotopic liver transplantation procedure on a 22 year old male patient with secondary biliary cirrhosis and multiple previous abdominal operations. This video depicts in detail various steps of the implantation, including a femoral-jugular decompression bypass. A specific feature is the extension of the procedure by a median sternotomy to approach the suprahepatic vena cava which was incorporated in undissectible adhesions.
