Abstract: On the basis of their innovation and experience with reduced-size grafts in children, 20 years ago, Russell Strong and his team in Brisbane, Australia, performed the first successful living donor liver transplant in the world from a mother to her son. The mismatch between supply and demand for deceased donor organs has fueled the expansion of all forms of reduced-size grafts, including split-liver and living donor transplantation. This review outlines the story of Russell Strong, reduced-size liver transplantation techniques, and the development of living donor liver transplantation.
