Pediatrician 's  Response
hello bijus,
Whether or not the Kasai procedure is performed, supportive medical treatment measures consist of vitamin and caloric support (vitamins A, D, K, and E and formulas containing medium-chain triglycerides.
bacterial infections (eg, ascending cholangitis) should be treated promptly with broad-spectrum antibiotics, and any bleeding tendency should be corrected with intramuscular vitamin K.
surgical intervention is the only therapy available loke kasai or liver transplantation .even if kasai method is successful,within years most of the children need liver transplantation.

hope my information help you.take care
