Abstract

Knowledge concerning the involvement of the cardiovascular system in children awaiting liver transplant is limited. Therefore, no guidelines have been established on evaluating this group of patients for cardiac disease. This review examines the diverse cardiovascular manifestations of liver disease in children. We also discuss the available testing and its applicability in screening for cardiac disease in this vulnerable population.
