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

Have mild chest pains after walkng for 20 minutes. They last about 15 minutes and when I slow down they go away. The rest of the day I just feel somewhat tired. Had echo,stress test on tread mill and angiogram CT scan. They said my heart is fine but I have some indictation of blocked arteries. One of them appears to be about 55-70% but they do not want to do an angiogram with stent. I had a liver transplant last Dec 2009 and it is fine. I maintain a good BP and pulse rate is a little low. After walking my BP is about 119/65 and HR is 62. Always, but I do have morning hypertension and am taking Cozaar and Norvasc along with Prograff,Imuran--Immunosurpressants for LIVER and Bactrim. The seem to cause headaches EVERY night about 2am that last for several hours. thought I was having a stroke but they ruled that out. Went to ER several times thinking that I was having a heart attack. EKG shows nothing and the heart enzyme tests are negative. I am puzzled. My dentist who is an avid runner said that I may be having ANGINA and to take my NITRO with me. I don t want to stop walking but this has been gpoing on for 3 months and nothing has been diagnosed? Thank You.
