Hepatic transplantation is now an accepted therapeutic option for selected patients with terminal liver disease. Biliary complications are, however relatively common after transplantation.

Interventional radiologic procedures were an integral part of the diagnostic and therapeutic management of these patients; reoperation was, nonetheless, occasionally required.
