Massive bleeding from the porta hepatis is a rare complication after a Kasai portoenterostomy and usually requires urgent surgical intervention. Among the causes of the porta hepatis bleeding, bleeding from the injured caudate arterial branches has never been reported. Here, we describe 2 cases of caudate arterial branch bleeding after a Kasai portoenterostomy, which were successfully treated with transcatheter arterial embolization without laparotomy.
