Conclusion

Complications are frequent after pediatric LT [1].

Biliary complications are the most frequent, while vascular complications are the most dangerous for graft survival [2].

The early detection of post-operative complications allows their prompt treatment, avoiding graft failure and improving patient survival [1, 2, 5].

Different imaging modalities help in the detection of early and late complications of LT, as well as in long-term follow-up to assess transplant viability [1, 4].

Interventional radiology has an increasing role in the management of postoperative complications [4].
