Management of biliary atresia- An UAE experience
4th International Conference on Hepatology
April 27-28, 2017 Dubai, UAE

M Amin El-Gohary

Burjeel Hospital, UAE

Keynote: J Liver


Between 1983 and 2015 we have encountered 24 cases of biliary atresia, 17 of who presented during the first 2 months and 7 presented between 2 and 9 months of age. All patients operated within the first 2 months had established good flow of bile and lead a near normal life. There was an initial good flow of bile in older patients, but complications of portal hypertension and ascites developed post operatively and 2 of whom had liver transplant. It is of paramount importance to increase awareness among neonatologist and pediatrician regarding early referrals of babies with refractory jaundice to ensure good surgical outcome. It�??s equally important to establish a center of excellence to which all cases of biliary atresia are referred to improve the surgical outcome. Those patients presented late and do not have an access to liver transplant should be operated upon, to buy time until possible transplantation facilities supervene.
