Suggest treatment for biliary atresia
Surgical option is the only option but that does not mean liver transplant
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.
I am sorry to know about your daughter XXXXXXX Unfortunately no primary medical treatment is relevant in the management of extrahepatic biliary atresia. Surgical options are available however. There is a procedure called Kasai portoenterostomy which may be done. In most cases of atresia, dissection into the porta hepatis and creation of a Roux-en-Y anastomosis with a 35-cm to 40-cm retrocolic jejunal segment is the procedure of choice. It has been shown that extension of the portal dissection beyond the portal vein bifurcation and the umbilical point in the left hilum may improve the likelihood of achieving adequate biliary drainage.
So the answer to your question is that liver transplant is not the only option. However, I do not think that stem cell therapy would help. But surgical options are the only options.
