ABSTRACT: Biliary Atresia management has always been an anathema of the pediatric surgeons. But of late the results are not that dismal as it was a decade ago, thanks to new modalities of investigations, early surgery, appropriate technique adopted during surgery and better postoperative management. Radionuclide hepatobiliary scan has made the workup of neonatal cholestasis much easier and paves the way of early surgical invention and can be used for follow up. Inj. Human Albumin in the immediate post operative period facilitates speedy re ovary of liver function.
