Resumen

CANTRELL, J. The role of interventional radiology in complications after paediatric liver transplantation. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2014, vol.104, n.11, pp. 825-829. ISSN 2078-5135.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7196/SAMJ.8619.

Liver transplantation has become an established treatment in both adults and children for end-stage liver disease, acute hepatic failure and certain liver tumours. There is a significant risk of complications after all forms of liver transplantation. The interventional radiologist plays a critical role in the diagnosis and treatment of these complications. The use of image-guided, minimally invasive procedures reduces the need for surgical revision or retransplantation and improves graft and patient survival rate. This article reviews some of the most common vascular and non-vascular complications after paediatric liver transplantation, and the interventional radiology techniques used to diagnose and treat them.
