Histological examination and evaluation of donor bile ducts received during orthotopic liver transplantation—a morphological clue to ischemic-type biliary lesion?


Ischemic-type biliary lesions (ITBL) belong to a group of biliary disorders that are regarded as the major complication in patients with orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). We performed histological evaluation of donor common bile ducts received during OLT to find morphological clues to the pathomechanisms of ITBL. We investigated 93 grafts of 92… (More)
