Aims and objectives

Liver transplant is the treatment option for the end stage liver diseases in children. Pediatric transplant differs from that of an adult's in various aspects, mainly due to the fact that patient size and hemodynamic characteristics vary with age, creating a need for the use of partial or reduced-sized grafts in this age group (1,2). Surgical complications of the hepatic transplant may be classified into venous, arterial and biliary (2).

Therefore, the purpose of this study was to analyse the pediatric liver transplantation complications in our centre and describe the differences in surgical complications between transplant types, patient age and basal disease.
