Abstract

Background: Progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis (PFIC) is a cholestatic liver disease of childhood. Pruritus resulting from increased bile salts in serum might not respond to medical treatment, and internal or external biliary drainage methods have been described. In this study, we aimed to evaluate different internal drainage techniques in patients with PFIC.
