METHODS 65 patients with portal hypertension due to schistosomiasis and previous gastrointestinal bleeding submitted to(More)
OBJECTIVES Liver transplantation has not increased with the number of patients requiring this treatment, increasing deaths among those on the waiting list. Models predicting post-transplantation survival, including the Model for Liver Transplantation Survival and the Donor Risk Index, have been created. Our aim was to compare the performance of the Model(More)
BACKGROUND Biliary complications remain a major cause of morbidity and mortality in liver transplantation and the biliary anastomosis technique could increase this risk. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of biliary reconstruction techniques in orthotopic liver transplantation on the incidence of biliary complications. METHODS A systematic(More)
