Abstract

Eight of 29 infants and children undergoing orthotopic liver transplantation for extrahepatic biliary atresia had associated major vascular anomalies. A distinctive and highly unusual vascular malformation consisting of absent inferior vena cava, anomalous origin of the hepatic artery, and preduodenal portal vein was encountered in three of these children. Although at times technically difficult, single anomalies of hepatic vasculature were satisfactorily handled. In contrast, transplantation attempts were lethal in all three infants having the complex vascular malformation. The suggestion is made that this specific subgroup of patients with biliary atresia be identified in advance and that, at the moment, children with this composite anomaly are highly questionable candidates for liver transplantation. © 1974.
