Abstract

Hepatic transplantation is now an accepted therapeutic option for selected patients with terminal liver disease. Biliary complications are, however relatively common after transplantation. We reviewed our experience with diagnostic and therapeutic biliary radiologic procedures in 151 hepatic recipients. Biliary complications were seen in 25% of patients. Interventional radiologic procedures were an integral part of the diagnostic and therapeutic management of these patients; reoperation was, nonetheless, occasionally required.
