Abstract

We retrospectively evaluated the safety and utility of transjugular liver biopsy (TJLB) in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) recipients. Ten patients underwent HSCT between 1991 and 2013. Eight patients with thrombocytopenia received platelet transfusions before and/or during TJLB. No complications associated with TJLB were observed. Samples adequate for a pathological diagnosis were obtained in 9 of the 10 patients, and the diagnoses made by TJLB were graft-versus-host-disease in eight patients and non-specific hepatitis in one. These results suggest that TJLB is a safe and effective procedure for the evaluation of liver injury in HSCT recipients.
