Title

Publication/Presentation Date

Abstract

Biliary cast syndrome (BCS) complicates up to one in six patients post-orthotopic liver transplant (OLT). Management of BCS is challenging with limited success using endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) or open exploration to clear the casts with some patients requiring re-transplantation. We present a case of BCS in a patient who suffered from vascular complications at the time of OLT rendering him a non-candidate for repeat liver transplantation in addition to increasing risk for ischemic insult and biliary strictures, and the challenges faced in his care.
