Overview
Biliary  atresia  is  the  most  common  cause  of  chronic cholestasis  in  infants  and  children.  The  incidence  is  estimated
at  3.7:10,000  among  Taiwanese  infants.  Kasai  hepatoportoen-terostomy  helps  children  survive  beyond  infancy.  Liver  trans-plantation  is  indicated  when  the  Kasai  procedure  fails  to  work or  when  patients  develop  progressive  deterioration  of  liver function despite an initially successful Kasai operation. Living donor  liver  transplantation  was  developed  to  alleviate  organ shortage  from  deceased  donors.  It  has  decreased  the  waiting time  for  transplantation  and,  therefore,  improves  patient  survival.  One  hundred  living  donor  liver  transplantations  have been  performed  for  biliary  atresia  at  Chang  Gung  Memorial Hospital-Kaohsiung Medical Center with both 98% 1-year and 5-year  actual  recipient  survival.
