Two children with glycogen storage disease were treated with portacaval transposition. The first is alive and in good health more than 5 years later. She underwent a rapid increase in growth after the operation, while the liver remained the same size. The second patient died within 2 days after the transposition, apparently because the portal system of the swollen liver was unable to transmit the vena caval inflow. © 1969.
