Abstract: Background: Pruritus is a major health-related quality-of-life burden in progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis (PFIC) and other childhood cholestatic liver diseases. Several nontransplant surgical techniques were developed in an attempt to ameliorate symptoms and slow disease progression. Very few case-series have been published on a particular intervention, ileal exclusion (1E), which has been considered to be inferior to the other approaches. Methods: We conducted a single-center retrospective chart-review case-series of patients submitted to IE as the first-line surgical treatment at our institution from 1995 to 2018. The primary goal was pruritus relief, followed by survival with the native liver and improvement in biochemical parameters. Results: Eleven patients were submitted to IE, with a mean follow-up of 60 months. Complete resolution or significant reduction of pruritus was obtained in 72.7% (n= 8) of patients. One patient (9.1%) had a major postoperative complication that required surgery. No other morbidities were reported. Two cases progressed to end-stage liver disease (ESLD) within the short-term and one year after surgery. Conclusions: This case series study shows that IE provided excellent results in pruritus control and permitted survival with the native liver. We believe IE is a safe procedure, with few associated morbidities, and should be considered more often as primary surgical treatment for PFIC and other cholestasis.
