Abstract

Objective: Biliary leakage (BL) is one of the most frequent complications following living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). Radiological methods are important in diagnosis and treatment. Although endoscopic approaches are considered as the first-line treatment option in BL, nowadays, increasing experience is strengthening the role of interventional radiological approaches. In our article, we aim to analyze our experience in the diagnosis and treatment of BLs developed after LDLT.
