Cardiac evaluation before liver transplant and subsequent follow-up are important in children with end-stage liver disease. Detecting cardiac abnormalities during evaluation can help in anticipating and rectifying major haemodynamic instability during transplantation. Abnormalities identified during evaluation include:
  1. 1.

    Structural heart diseases

     
  2. 2.

    Myocardial abnormalities

     
  3. 3.

    Conduction defects
