Biliary complications post liver transplantation are a significant source of morbidity and mortality and early recognition is paramount to the long-term success of the liver graft. Part II of this series will focus on liver transplant biliary anatomy, including the blood supply to the biliary system and potential problems if it is interrupted. The imaging rationale for investigating suspected biliary complications, potential pitfalls, and treatment options will be discussed. The various biliary complications will be illustrated using a collection of cases.

Objective: To evaluate the risk factors and outcome of bile leak after liver transplantation. Methods: We undertook a retrospective study of patients who underwent liver transplantation in our institution between January 2010 and January 2014. The characteristics and survival rate of patients with or without bile leak were compared. Results: Bile leak was observed in sixteen patients after liver transplantation (2.7% of the total number of patients transplanted). Total operating time and bile du...

Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is a progressive cholestatic liver disease, with liver transplantation being the sole life-saving treatment for end-stage PSC-related liver disease. However, recurrence of PSC after liver transplantation is a common complication, with the risk factors for recurrence being controversial. We conducted a retrospective chart review of 45 patients who had undergone liver transplantation for PSC at our institute. The risk factors for PSC recurrence and graft failur...

Aim To evaluate the imaging characteristics of biliary complications following liver transplantation on magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) and its diagnostic accuracy in comparison with direct cholangiography. Material and methods In this prospective study, 34 patients being evaluated for possible biliary complications after living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT) with abnormal MRCP findings were followed up for information regarding direct cholangiography either endoscopic ret...

BACKGROUND: Biliary reconstitution has been considered the Achilles's heel of liver transplantations due to its high rate of postoperative complications. AIM: To evaluate the risk factors for occurrence of biliary strictures and leakages, and the most efficient methods for their treatment. METHOD: Of 310 patients who underwent liver transplantation between 2001 and 2015, 182 medical records were retrospectively analyzed. Evaluated factors included demographic profile, type of transplantation and...

Abstract Introduction Biliary complications (BC) are one of the most frequent surgical complications after liver transplantation. They include biliary stenosis, leaks, choledocolitiasis and sphincter of Oddi dysfunction. These complications can cause graft dysfunction, retrasplantation, or even death. The purpose of this study was to identify factors related to BC. Materials and Methods The medical records of all adult patients who underwent their first liver transplantation in our institution f...

Biliary complications cause significant morbidity and mortality in liver transplantation. Warm ischemia can induce biliary duct injury. This study aimed to investigate the effects of warm ischemia on the peribiliary vascular plexus in rat liver transplantation. A total of 102 Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into three groups: sham-operation group, non-ischemic group, and ischemic group. Liver transplantation was performed in both the non-ischemic group and the ischemic group. The animals were s...

Portal cavernoma develops as a bunch of hepatopetal collaterals in response to portomesenteric venous obstruction and induces morphological changes in the biliary ducts, referred to as portal cavernoma cholangiopathy. This article briefly reviews the available literature on the vascular supply of the biliary tract in the light of biliary changes induced by portal cavernoma. Literature pertaining to venous drainage of the biliary tract is scanty whereas more attention was focused on the arterial ...
