Cardiac and liver disease in children: implications for management before and after liver transplantation
Research output: Contribution to journal › Review article
There is close interaction between the functions of the liver and heart affecting the presentation, diagnosis, and outcome of acute and chronic cardiac and liver disease. Conditions affecting both organ systems should be considered when proposing transplantation because the interaction between cardiac disease and liver disease has implications for diagnosis, management, selection for transplantation, and, ultimately, for longterm outcomes after liver transplantation (LT). The combination of cardiac and liver disease is well recognized in adults but is less appreciated in pediatric patients. The focus of this review is to describe conditions affecting both the liver and heart and how they affect selection and management of LT in the pediatric population.
