Treatment - BASCA : Biliary Atresia Screening Card Association

Treatment

Hepato-porto-enterostomie after Kasai

A primary treatment with medication has no sense in the treatment of biliary atresia. When a biliary atresia is suspected, a multi-step treatment begins: a surgical intervention in the form of a porto-enterostomie after Kasai must be performed as soon as possible during the newborn period, in order to restore bile flow to the intestine. If this operation does not succeed, or if a liver cirrhosis develops, a liver transplantation might be needed.

Illustration: When a hepato-porto-enterostomie after Kasai is performed, a bowel loop is sutured up to the liver, in order to restore bile flow from the liver to the intestine.
