The condition causes a blockage in the ducts that carry bile from the liver to the gallbladder. It&#39;s a congenital condition, which means that infants are born with the condition. The bile ducts are important because they remove waste from the liver and also transport potassium or salts that aid the small intestine in breaking down and digesting fat. Without treatment, Baby L.&rsquo;s prognosis was not good, as the blocked bile ducts could lead to liver damage, liver cirrhosis, and eventual death.</p> http://www.placidway.com/article/791/Successful_Liver_Transplant_of_Infant_in_Turkey Think you Need a Joint Replacement?
