Abstract

Post-transplantation refractory ascites is uncommon; however, it can be a serious problem, increasing both morbidity and mortality in patients. Despite scant literature available, splenic artery embolization (SAE) has been shown to be an effective treatment for refractory ascites after cadaveric orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). We report a successful use of therapeutic SAE for refractory ascites post-OLT.
