Athough significant strides have been made in the surgical technique of orthotopic liver transplantation, numerous problems and nuisances are still encountered. Further surgical refinements will certainly evolve. The development of better preservation techniques, the use of intraoperative flowmeters, and the availability of new technologies, such as an artificial liver, should impact and advance the techniques of liver transplantation significantly and improve the overall results even further.
