Abstract

We describe 2 techniques that allow right renal vein extension and prevent renal vein stenosis if the cephalic portion of the renal vein has been amputated when the liver is separated from the kidneys during multiple organ retrieval. These techniques were successfully used in 8 cadaver kidney transplant recipients.
