To evaluate the clinical benefits in the patients receiving Viatorr CX over a period of 12 months of structured Follow-up (before TIPS, at TIPS, 1 week after TIPS, at 6 weeks, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months), regarding clinical endpoints, such as HE, readmission, liver injury, cardiac function, response to TIPS and the passive expansion of the stents in real life.
Case-control study using the patients in the University Clinic Bonn receiving Viatorr CX (n=40), using a comparison ration 1:1:1 to Viatorr and bare metal stents.
Of these patients, 20 patients will receive Viatorr CX and the assessement of the width of the stent as outlined in the JVIR-paper published this year.
The Viatorr and BMS controls with similar age, gender, Child, MELD and indication for TIPS.
A total of 125 patients with the primary composite-endpoint HE/readmission will be investigated Secondary endpoints are liver injury, cardiac function, response to TIPS and the passive expansion of the stents in real life.
