Background/Aims: Although living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) has been accepted as a primary treatment for adults with endstage liver disease, concerns about donor health have emerged. As LDLT is technically complex, it creates perioperative morbidity and mortality risk in donors. Biliary complications such as stricture and leakage are seen most frequently in donors after liver transplantation. While some of these complications get treated with a conservative approach, endoscopic, surgical, and percutaneous interventions may be required in some others. We aimed to present endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) results in donors who developed biliary complications after LDLT.
