While there have been many advances in surgical technique and post-operative care of patients undergoing liver transplant since the first performed in 1963, procedural complexity still require a long recovery. To compound this, relative shortage of donor organs require extreme care in pre-operative selection and post-operative management. While current knowledge and team based care has limited complications, they remain not infrequent. Many of these expected problems are managed in consultation with an interventional radiologist and this chapter summarizes the most common encountered problems.
