Minimally invasive endovascular and biliary treatments of children with acute hepatic artery thrombosis following liver transplantation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Hepatic artery thrombosis is a major problem after pediatric liver transplantation. Ischemia caused by hepatic artery thrombosis results in severe biliary and parenchymal damage and is associated with high rates of graft loss and mortality. We present a case-based pictorial essay to illustrate the role of minimally invasive treatment in the prompt management of acute hepatic artery thrombosis, and the associated biliary complications.
