Abstract: Background. In recent years, several studies have shown that the age of the donor may be related to an increase in the occurrence of biliary complications (BCs), which remain the main cause of morbidity after liver transplantation. This study analyzed the type and management of these BCs, the impact of BCs on graft and patient survival rates, and the influence of some characteristics of donors and recipients on BC appearance in patients transplanted with donors 75 years of age or older.
