Biliary complication (BC) is still regarded as the Achilles' heel of a living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). This study aims to evaluate the longterm outcomes of the duct-to-duct (DD) biliary reconstruction using 7-0 suture and to identify the risk factors of BCs after LDLTs. Data of 140 LDLTs between 2006 and 2015 were analyzed. All biliary reconstructions were performed as DD anastomoses using 7-0 suture: 102 for the right lobe, 20 for the left lobe, and 18 for right posterior sector grafts. BC was defined as a bile leakage (BL) or a biliary stricture (BS), and the median follow-up time after LDLT was 65 months. A total of 19 recipients (13.5%) developed BCs (8 BLs and 16 BSs) after LDLT. The survival rates between recipients with and without BCs were 83% and 86.7%, respectively (P = 0.88). In univariate analyses, the risk factors for BC were small diameter of the graft's bile duct, long warm ischemic time, small graft-to-recipient weight ratio, and no use of external biliary stent (EBS). The graft's bile duct diameter
