Kasai Procedure

The Kasai procedure is a surgical technique used to replace blocked bile ducts outside of the liver with a piece of the infant's small intestine, to act as a new bile duct. The procedure allows bile to drain from the liver into the intestine and has an 80 percent success rate if performed within the first three-months of life. This surgery was named after Dr. Morio Kasai, the Japanese surgeon who developed it.
