dc.description.abstract BACKGROUND/AIMS: Despite various surgical techniques, biliary tract complications (BC) remain a major source of morbidity after liver transplantation (LT). METHODOLOGY: Between April 2000 and November 2008, 523 LTs in 487 recipients (36 re transplantations) were performed as follows: 402 whole deceased donor graft LTs, and 121 partial liver transplantation: 75 living donor liver transplantation, 42 split liver transplantation, and 4 reduced size liver transplantation. RESULTS: Mean follow-up period was 935 days (range 1-3174), 1, 3 and 5-year survival rates were 78.7% 74.2% and 74.2%, respectively. One hundred twenty seven patients--from 487 (26%), developed (after 135 LT) 150 singular BC (in total were 181 BC). Sixty four (of 85) bile leaks (75.29%) were early BC, while 53 (of 63) stenosis (84.1%) were late BC. BC does not influenced significantly patients and graft survival (p > 0.6). From 102 deaths, 8 were due to BC (1.6%) and in only 14 (2.67%) graft loss of 523 LT BC had the main role. Multiple ducts, multiple biliary anastomosis and RYHJ determine BC if compared to a single duct graft. Moreover, ductoplasty, graft type and HAT were independent risk factors. CONCLUSION: Biliary complications are common after LT but are rarely an isolated cause of death. en_US
