Learning objectives: Describe the normal findings on the echography of recent liver transplants. Systematize the liver ultrasonography after transplant for early detection of most common complications. Explain and illustrate the most common pathological findings involving early complications. Review the contributio[...]

Background: Liver transplantation is becoming more and more frequent. Ultrasonography is the study of choice in the early control after surgery. It is useful to detect complications and provide the appropriate treatment.

Findings and procedure details: INTRODUCTION Liver transplantation is currently considered the treatment of choice in chronic end-stage liver disease and fulminant liver failure. In the last decades there has been a significant increase in the performance of this type of procedure, which in turn has been accompanied by an improv[...]

Conclusion: Abdominal ultrasound is an accessible, inexpensive and noninvasive test that can be used for early detection of complications after performing a liver transplant. Since this type of intervention is being performed more frequently, it is important for the radiologist to understand the normal and abno[...]
