Recently, living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) has been frequently performed in Korea because of the limited availability of a cadaveric donor (CD). We evaluated the clinical features of patients with biliary complications after liver transplantation and we compared the incidence of biliary complications according to the type of donor and the anastomotic type of the biliary tract.
Between May 1996 and July 2004, 300 patients (CDLT 102/LDLT 198) underwent liver transplantation at Samsung Medical Center. The patients who experienced biliary complications during the follow-up period were enrolled to the study and we retrospectively reviewed their cases.
Sixty-seven cases (23%) of biliary complications were noticed in 53 patients (18%). The complications consisted of 20 cases (7%) of bile leakage, 38 cases (13%) of biliary strictures, 7 cases (2%) of biliary stones, and 2 cases (1%) of biliary stenosis due to other cause. There was no significant difference on the incidence of complications between CDLT (15/102; 14.7%) and LDLT (38/198; 19.2%) (p=0.42). In addition, there was no significant difference between choledocho-choledochostomy (43/237; 18.1%) and hepatico-jejunostomy (10/ 63; 15.9%)(p=0.85)
The incidence rate of biliary complication after liver transplantation was 23%, and there was no difference according to the type of donor and the anastomotic type of biliary tract. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2006;32:94⁣100)
