Abstract

We present the impact of liver transplantation in a patient with Budd-Chiari syndrome on improvement of autonomic system function and decreasing of sudden cardiac death (SCD). The case shows that not only implantable cardioverter defibrillator is a factor protecting patients with cirrhosis against SCD, but also liver transplantation itself.
