INTRAHEPATIC BILE-DUCT STRICTURES AFTER HUMAN ORTHOTOPIC LIVER-TRANSPLANTATION - RECURRENCE OF PRIMARY SCLEROSING CHOLANGITIS OR UNUSUAL PRESENTATION OF ALLOGRAFT-REJECTION TRANSPLANT INTERNATIONAL Lerut, J., Demetris, A.

Abstract

One of 55 patients transplanted for sclerosing cholangitis during the cyclosporin-steroid era (March 1980-June 1986) developed intrahepatic biliary strictures in the absence of allograft rejection within the 1st year posttransplantation. Although many causes underlie biliary pathology in the postoperative period (i.e., arterial injury, ischemia, chronic rejection, cholangitis), recurrent disease remains a possibility.
