ABSTRACT: In countries such as Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Korea, where cadaveric donors for organ transplantation are hardly obtained, live related liver transplantation (LRLT) is an important choice for saving the patients with end stage Biliary atresia. LRLT has been performed in almost 800 patients at 28 institutions in Japan since 1989; 70 percent of those 800 were pediatric patients with advanced biliary atresia. Overall surviving rate of LRLT in Japan is approximately 80 percent which is compatible with cadaveric liver transplantation in western countries. Current status of LRLT at the University of Tokyo (n=53, between January 1996 and February 1999) and in Japan (n=796, between November 1989 and January 1999) will be reported.
