PURPOSE To determine whether a change in hepatic venous flow pattern can be seen during hepatic graft rejection and if it is reversible with treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-nine children received 42 liver allografts during a 10-year span. Doppler ultrasonographic (US) recordings of hepatic venous wave patterns were reviewed. Nine children (ten grafts) with continuously monophasic flow were not included in the study. Changes from triphasic to monophasic flow were recorded and… CONTINUE READING
