PMID:  17580227     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Percutaneous liver biopsy is a relatively safe method of assessing liver histology in living subjects. The current report depicts a case of arterioportal fistula in a living liver donor who underwent percutaneous liver biopsy as part of the routine transplant workup at our institution. The experience questions the utility of routine percutaneous liver biopsies as part of the living liver donor screening.
