Abstract

Liver transplantation (LT) is commonly used to treat patients with end-stage liver disease. The evolution of surgical techniques, endovascular methods, and medical care has led to a progressive decrease in posttransplant morbidity and mortality. Despite these improvements, a multidisciplinary approach to each patient remains essential as the early diagnosis and treatment of the complications of transplantation influence graft and patient survival. The critical role of interventional radiology in the collaborative approach to the care of the LT patient will be reviewed. Liver Transplantation 23 1328–1341 2017 AASLD.
