Abstract

Evaluation of the biliary tract after liver transplantation, particularly when a Roux-en-Y hepatojejunostomy precludes endoscopic retrograde cholangiography, may be challenging. We present five cases of suspected biliary obstruction after liver transplantation in which multidetector-row computed tomography (CT) cholangiography was used. In conclusion, it was determined that multidetector-row CT cholangiography may be a useful modality for demonstrating patent biliary-enteric anastomoses and excluding flow-limiting biliary anastomotic strictures.
