Abstract

Hepatic artery thrombosis (HAT) is a serious complication after liver transplantation. This is the first report of spontaneous resolution of HAT in pediatric liver transplant patients on low molecular weight heparin therapy. A total of 2 patients, a 26-month-old boy who presented with acute liver failure and required emergent liver transplantation and a 15-yearold boy with ulcerative colitis and autoimmune hepatitis-primary sclerosing cholangitis overlap underwent liver transplantation for progressive cirrhosis; both developed HAT during the postoperative period. They were both treated with low molecular weight heparin. Follow-up imaging for both patients showed resolution of HAT without evidence of collateral flow.
