Budd-Chiari syndrome following a liver transplant is an uncommon phenomenon. We present a case of endovascular management of a focal circumferential inferior vena cava (IVC) occlusion at the anastomosis that developed 10 years after orthotopic liver transplantation. It was successfully recanalized using the stiff end of the guidewire and percutaneous transluminal angioplasty with a high-pressure balloon. During a 14-month follow up, the IVC remained patent and did not require further intervention.
