Abstract

Hepatic artery thrombosis remains one of the most serious complications after orthotopic liver transplantation. Sepsis, biliary leakage and strictures, and retransplantation are often the result of this devastating complication. Because retransplantation or reoperation is sometimes not possible or advisable, other means of reestablishing hepatic artery continuity are desirable. We describe a liver transplant recipient who developed a dissection of an iliac artery conduit after retransplantation that was treated with fibrinolytic therapy followed by successful placement of an endovascular stent.
