Abstract

Liver transplantation now plays a major role in the treatment of end-stage liver disease in children. Reduced-size liver transplant surgical techniques have allowed increasing numbers of children to undergo liver transplantation. As more children are undergoing liver transplantation, there is a growing need for radiologic diagnosis of and intervention in post-transplantation complications in these patients.
