“Budd-Chiari syndrome is caused by blood clots that completely or partially block the large veins that carry blood from the liver (hepatic veins) into the inferior vena cave.”
My educational journey has led me to a fantastic book on liver transplantation. 100 Q&A About Liver Transplantation: A Lahey Clinic Guide (100 Questions & Answers about).
This book is a wonderful resource. Kim’s condition and transplant journey left me with several questions that the book was able to answer.
If you are interested in learning more about the liver, transplant lists, medication side-effects, and more, I highly recommend this book.
