Biliary atresia (BA) is a rapidly progressive inflammatory fibro-obliterative process affecting intra and extra hepatic bile ducts. BA is the most common indication for liver transplantation in children, however the etiopathogenesis is not completely understood. This one hour webinar will summarize genomics in BA, current diagnostic algorithms and novel prognosticators for BA, and long term outcomes of BA. Learners will gain understanding of current practices and future directions in etiopathogenesis and outcomes of BA.
