Biliary complications (BCs) still remain the Achilles heel of liver transplantation (LT) with an overall incidence of 10% to 35% in pediatric series. We hypothesized that (1) the use of alternative techniques (reduced size, split, and living donor grafts) in pediatric LT may contribute to an increased incidence of BCs, and (2) surgery as a first treatment(More)
UNLABELLED Liver retransplantation (LrT) is the only therapeutic option for irreversible failure of a hepatic graft and accounts for 2.9%-24.0% of all liver transplantations (LT). It is technically difficult and has a high level of immediate morbidity and a lower survival than primary LT. Our aim was to determine the rate of LrT and its indications,(More)
We describe the case of a 13-month-old girl transplanted for biliary atresia with PV hypoplasia. She received the left liver lobe of her mother and presented intraoperative portal thrombosis. Because of technical reasons, the opportunity to have conventional PV reconstruction using the donor left PV stump was lost. Immediate conversion to a meso-Rex shunt,(More)
INTRODUCTION Combined liver-kidney transplantation (LKT) is the best therapeutic option for patients with end-stage liver and kidney disease. OBJECTIVES To analyze baseline characteristics and clinical outcome of LKT compared to isolated liver transplantation (LT). MATERIAL AND METHODS The study included 16 LKT performed between 1998 and 2006 and 32 LT(More)
Liver retransplantation (re-LT) is the only therapeutic option for irreversible failure of the graft. It currently makes up 2.9% to 24.0% of all liver transplants. It is technically very difficult and has a high index of immediate complications, underlined by the fact that 50% of the deaths after this procedure occur in the first three months; and that in(More)
