Left-sided Portal Hypertension After Pancreaticoduodenectomy With Resection of the Portal Vein/Superior Mesenteric Vein Confluence in Patients With Pancreatic Cancer: A Project Study by the Japanese Society of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery.
The aim of this study was to evaluate how often left-sided portal hypertension (LPH) develops and how LPH affects the long-term outcomes of patients with pancreatic cancer treated with pancreaticoduod...
Portal hypertension (PH) is an increase in the pressure gradient between portal vein and inferior vena cava. Increased resistance occurs at different levels within the portal venous system, followed b...
Cirrhotic patients with gastroesophageal varices and non-tumoral portal vein thrombosis have a higher risk of re-bleeding and poor prognosis. This study aimed to analyze inflammatory biomarkers and th...
Background Extra hepatic portal vein obstruction (EHPVO) is a common cause of portal hypertension in the developing countries (up to 30% of all variceal bleeders) and is second to cirrhosis in the Wes...
The occurrence of endothelial alterations in the liver and in the splanchnic vasculature of cirrhotic patients and experimental models of liver diseases has been demonstrated. However, the pathologica...
To evaluate the values of portosystemic shunt and other interventional radiology approaches for treatment of symptomatic portal hypertension in patients with cavernous transformation of po...
The aim of this study is to prospectively evaluate the tolerance and efficiency of a new technique of preoperative selective portal vein embolization (PVE) in patients requiring major hepa...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect and safety of anticoagulation after endoscopic therapy in cirrhotic patients with portal vein thrombosis and to explore its effect on l...
To prevent portal vein thrombosis (PVT) in patients with cirrhosis at risk for PVT by pharmacologic prophylaxis with intravenous antithrombin (AT-III).
This study evaluates correlation in changes of HVPG-pressure values and stiffness values (ARFI) for spleen and liver and flow-volume values in Portal vein in patients with liver cirrhosis/...
A short thick vein formed by union of the superior mesenteric vein and the splenic vein.
Abnormal increase of resistance to blood flow within the hepatic PORTAL SYSTEM, frequently seen in LIVER CIRRHOSIS and conditions with obstruction of the PORTAL VEIN.
Veins which return blood from the intestines; the inferior mesenteric vein empties into the splenic vein, the superior mesenteric vein joins the splenic vein to form the portal vein.
A type of surgical portasystemic shunt to reduce portal hypertension with associated complications of esophageal varices and ascites. It is performed percutaneously through the jugular vein and involves the creation of an intrahepatic shunt between the hepatic vein and portal vein. The channel is maintained by a metallic stent. The procedure can be performed in patients who have failed sclerotherapy and is an additional option to the surgical techniques of portocaval, mesocaval, and splenorenal shunts. It takes one to three hours to perform. (JAMA 1995;273(23):1824-30)
Anastomosis of splenic vein to renal vein to relieve portal hypertension.
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
