Orthotopic liver transplantation is the ultimate treatment for end-stage liver disease and hepatocellular carcinomas. Biliary complications are the most regular complications seen after transplantation, with an incidence of 10–25%.

Keywords: Transplantation.

Biliary tract complications are frequently seen in liver transplantation recipients and account for a crucial cause of morbidity and mortality in post-transplant patients. Common complications are anastomotic strictures (AnS), non-anastomotic strictures (NAnS), bile leaks, bile duct stones, bile casts

. It is generally accepted that strictures of all types are more widespread with Roux-en-Y choledochojejunostomy, but some contest this.4,13 Long-term biliary drawbacks between duct-to-duct and Roux-en-Y surgeries are indistinguishable in review of the literature

This harm is comparable to the harm caused by significant alcohol use. Elevated bodily fluid animal pigment levels are reciprocally related to nonalcoholic {fatty liver malady} disease. AnS generally occur in the first 12 months, and are single, shorter, and within 5 mm of the anastomotic site

The pathophysiological events can be multifactorial, such as insufficient mucosa at an anastomotic site, local tissue ischemia, localized edema, and fibrosis transpiring at the site of healing. Biliary complications are often diagnosed in asymptomatic OLT recipients based on upraised liver function markers, involving: aspartate aminotransferase/alanine aminotransferase, alkaline phosphatase, and gamma-glutamyl transferase

Clinically, patients may present with signs of cholangitis, including: fever, abdominal pain, jaundice, and confusion. Bile duct strictures endures a major source of distress after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). Endoscopic management by the standard methods of biliary dilatation and/or stent placement has been successful, but sometimes severe complications occur, requesting prolonged therapy

Endoscopic maneuvering for biliary dilatation and/or stent placement following OLT was related with a higher risk of post-ERCP pancreatitis than the use of the same approach for the treatment of malignant biliary stricture. Endoscopic treatment after OLT was a remarkable risk factor for post-ERCP pancreatitis

Biliary complications after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) still endure a major cause of morbidity and mortality. The most common complications are strictures and leakages in OLT cases with duct-to-duct biliary rehabilitation (D-D), which can be treated with dilatation or stent placement during endoscopic regressive cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), although this procedure is weighed down with potentially severe complications, such as retroperitoneal perforation, acute pancreatitis, septic cholangitis, bleeding, reoccurrence of stones, strictures due to ease process. Biliary complications (BC) recently represent a major source of distress after liver transplantation

Although refinements in surgical technique and medical therapy have had a positive impact on the reduction of postoperative morbidity, BC affect 5% to 25% of transferred patients. Bile leak and anastomotic strictures represent the most common obstacles.
