The Influence of Post-transjugular Intrahepatic Portosystemic Shunt Hepatic Encephalopathy

2019-02-05 18:31:16 | BioPortfolio


Through a multicenter randomized controlled trial of TIPS to prevent post-hepatitis B cirrhosis of esophagogastric varices, the incidence of hepatic encephalopathy, the rate of stent patency, the incidence of rebleeding and survival in the left and right branches of the portal vein were compared.


The most common cause of cirrhosis in China is hepatitis B virus infection; post-hepatitis B cirrhosis with gastroesophageal variceal hemorrhage is common in clinical practice; recent studies [14] found that implantation of 8 mm diameter is compared with the use of 10 mm diameter stents. The membrane stent significantly reduced the incidence of HE after TIPS without affecting the shunt effect. To further evaluate the effect of "left/right branch of shunt portal" on hepatic encephalopathy after TIPS, we intend to conduct the following studies: for individual etiology (post-hepatitis B cirrhosis), the only indication (to prevent recurrent rupture of gastroesophageal varices) ), implanted 8mm diameter Viatorr stent, unified HE evaluation criteria, and stratified multi-center randomized clinical trial study with Child classification, hope to guide TIPS in line with China's national conditions through the high-level evidence-based medical evidence obtained.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)

Dilated blood vessels in the ESOPHAGUS or GASTRIC FUNDUS that shunt blood from the portal circulation (PORTAL SYSTEM) to the systemic venous circulation. Often they are observed in individuals with portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL).

Surgical venous shunt between the portal and systemic circulation to effect decompression of the portal circulation. It is performed primarily in the treatment of bleeding esophageal varices resulting from portal hypertension. Types of shunt include portacaval, splenorenal, mesocaval, splenocaval, left gastric-caval (coronary-caval), portarenal, umbilicorenal, and umbilicocaval.

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.

Congenital cystic dilatation of the intrahepatic bile ducts (BILE DUCTS, INTRAHEPATIC). It consists of 2 types: simple Caroli disease is characterized by bile duct dilatation (ectasia) alone; and complex Caroli disease is characterized by bile duct dilatation with extensive hepatic fibrosis and portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL). Benign renal tubular ectasia is associated with both types of Caroli disease.
