The impact of an imbalanced graft-to-spleen volume ratio (GSVR) on posttransplant outcomes other than postreperfusion portal hypertension remains unknown. The importance of GSVR might vary according to whether simultaneous splenectomy (SPX) is performed. This retrospective study divided 349 living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) recipients from 2006 to 2017 into 2 groups: low GSVR (≤0.70 g/mL) and normal GSVR (>0.70 g/mL). The cutoff value of GSVR was set based on the first quartile of the distributed data. Graft survival and associations with various clinical factors were investigated between the groups according to whether SPX was performed. Low GSVR did not affect outcomes when SPX was performed. In contrast, it was associated with an increased incidence of early graft loss (EGL) and poor graft survival by presenting posttransplant thrombocytopenia, cholestasis, coagulopathy, and massive ascites when the spleen was preserved. Among patients with a preserved spleen, the multivariable analysis results revealed that older donor age and low GSVR were independent risk factors for graft loss. In conclusion, low GSVR was an independent predictor of graft loss after LDLT when the spleen was preserved. Preserved spleen with extremely low GSVR may be related to persistent hypersplenism, impaired graft function, and consequent EGL.
