What is Biliary Atresia?

Biliary Atresia

At a basic level, Biliary Atresia is a condition in infants where the liver can’t properly drain bile. This inability to drain bile causes the liver to scar and eventually fail, if left untreated.

A thorough definition of Biliary Atresia can be found at The American Liver Foundation and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
