    Galip Ersoz et al. Magnetic compression anastomosis for patients with a disconnected bile duct after living-donor related liver transplantation: a pilot study

    Treating disconnected bile duct syndrome after living-donor related transplantation is challenging. The authors present the rendezvous percutaneous–endoscopic magnetic compression anastomosis technique, which was used to connect the disconnected bile ducts of six patients who could not be treated with either percutaneous or endoscopic procedures. The procedure was successful in all patients, with biliary recanalization observed between 13–42 days after the magnet placement procedure.
