Core Tip The majority of biliary atresia (BA) patients require liver transplantation (LTx) due to progressive hepatic fibrosis and associated portal hypertension. We aimed to relate expression of collagen 1, α-smooth muscle actin (α-SMA) and CD34 to the most essential portoenterostomy (PE) outcomes. Collagen 1, α-SMA and CD34 were markedly overexpressed in BA patients compared with controls and centrizonal neovascularization was increased in BA. Patients who underwent LTx by age of two years had significantly higher expression of collagen 1, α-SMA and CD34 at PE compared with native liver survivors. Fibrogenesis and neovascularization are enhanced in BA, progress with increasing PE age and relate to native liver survival and development of esophageal varices.
