Abstract

Liver transplantation is an accepted and successful mode of treatment for pediatric end-stage liver disease. A living related liver transplatation(LRLT) in a child has certain potential advantages, such as short cold ischemic time, accurate graft size, and vessel diameter match based on elective preoperative preparations. Recently, microvasular surgery techniques have been introduced in hepatic artery reconstruction but still the possibility of hepatic artery thrombosis remains. Herein, We report an LRLT case, which showed hepatic artery stenosis postoperatively, successfully dilated by balloon angioplasty technique.
