The tumor stage, the operative technique, and the type of(More)
Between April 1986 and August 1994, 393 orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) have been performed at "12 de Octubre" Hospital. Among these ones we consider 274 OLT made in 223 adults and in 47 children (4 intraoperative deaths). The reconstruction of the biliary tract was performed with a choledocho-choledochostomy with T tube (CD-CD T) in 131 patients, a(More)
