The number of liver transplantations performed in this country is limited to the availability of cadaver liver donors, which are always short of demand. Deterioration of patient's clinical condition during the long wait for a compatible donor usually casts a poor prognosis on the patient. We report a 6-year-old girl who underwent splenic artery embolization(More)
BACKGROUND Preoperative delineation of any vascular anomalies offers planning for possible alteration of surgical procedures, especially in pediatric recipients undergoing living-related liver transplantation. PURPOSE We assess the efficacy of three-dimensional (3D) multislice computed tomography (CT) angiography in the hope of replacing conventional(More)
UNLABELLED Catheter angiography for early diagnosis of vascular complications in pediatric liver transplant yields excellent results but remains an extremely invasive examination for younger children, precluding its routine use. We assessed the efficacy of three-dimensional multislice computed tomographic angiography (3DCTA) as an alternative option in(More)
Pathologic changes of the recipient native portal venous system may cause thrombosis of the portal vein, especially in pediatric living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). This study assessed the utility of Doppler ultrasound (US) for the detection of intraoperative portal vein occlusion and identification of predisposing risk factors in the recipients.(More)
We reviewed long-term results of percutaneous venoplasty in children with hepatic vein stenosis after partial liver transplants, of which excellent early results were shown. Percutaneous transjugular hepatic venoplasty using balloon dilatation or stent implantation was performed in six cases with hepatic vein stenosis identified on routine post-transplant(More)
