Biliary tract complications are an important source of morbidity after liver transplantation, and present a challenge to all involved in their care. With increasing options for transplantation, including living donor and split liver transplants, the complexity of these problems is increasing. However, diagnosis is greatly facilitated by modern noninvasive imaging techniques. A team approach, including transplant hepatology and surgery, interventional endoscopy and interventional radiology, results in effective solutions in most cases, such that operative reintervention or retransplantation is rarely required.
