Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This case-series analyzed the outcome of live donor liver transplantation (LT) performed in children <7.5 kg from January 2008 to June 2009 at our center. Five patients (3 males, 2 females, mean age, 8.2 ± .4 months; mean weight 6.8 ± 0.4 kg) underwent LT. The indications of LT included biliary atresia (3) and idiopathic neonatal hepatitis (2). Postoperative complications included acute rejection (1), portal venous thrombosis (1), bile leak (1), severe hypertension (1) and bacterial sepsis (4). There were no donor related complications. The median follow-up duration is 11 months with patient and graft survival rates of 100% each, respectively.
