Abstract

This report describes the unique development of pulmonary vascular dilatation and hypoxemia associated with a portosystemic shunt in a pediatric liver transplant recipient. Ligation of the shunt resulted in resolution of hypoxemia. The outcome suggests that hepatic venous return to the pulmonary circulation is important in maintaining normal pulmonary vascular caliber.
