Thrombosis of the right portal vein CT scan ; E, F: In conclusion, it is reasonable to routinely investigate the most common prothrombotic disorders and exclude a local trigger, to provide a correct management of PVT and its original cause.

However, levels favernoma prothrombin and other coagulation factors could be moderately decreased, while D-dimer is usually increased[ 822 ].

The presence of ascites, thinning of the intestinal wall, lack of mucosal enhancement of the thickened intestinal wall, or the development of multiorgan failure indicate that intestinal infarction is likely and surgical exploration should be considered. Cohen et al[ 13 ] confirmed these data and reported that most PVT patients were cirrhotics with a primary or metastatic liver cancer.

The identification of protean manifestations of PVT is essential to provide a prompt diagnosis, cavednoma the removal of the original trigger factor and an early therapeutic management is crucial to cavrenoma patient health and, sometimes, life.

Improved results of liver transplantation in patients with portal vein thrombosis. Determining prognosis and creating clinical decision rules. Complications of venous reconstruction in human orthotopic liver transplantation.

Other modalities of treatment should be adopted only in case of partial or absent PVT resolution[ 12]. Usually, the original portal vein becomes a thin, fibrotic cord, which is difficult to visualize[ 89 ]. Lw center experience of 39 patients with preoperative portal vein thrombosis among adult living donor liver transplantations. Nat Clin Pract Gastroenterol Hepatol. Formation of caverrnoma collaterals or cavernous transformation after portal vein obstruction by hepatocellular carcinoma.

Malformación cavernomatosa de la vena porta

This is an arbitrary distinction, which is sometimes difficult to apply in clinical practice; patients who develop symptoms, such as abdominal pain, nausea, and fever, within sixty days prior to hospital admission, might have an acute PVT development[ 5859 ].


Furthermore, contrast-enhanced MR angiography is useful to assess flow direction in the portal venous system and its patency, to identify a cavernomatous transformation, to determine the presence of varices, and to verify the correct function of surgical shunts[ 8182 ].

Other less common PVT local causes are adenopathy, systemic inflammatory response syndrome, and surgical traumas to the portal venous system, such as portosystemic shunting, splenectomy, liver transplantation, ablative therapy for HCC, and fine needle aspiration of abdominal masses[ 1 ].

Vascular liver disorders II: Portal vein cavvernoma after variceal endoscopic sclerotherapy in cirrhotic patients: Biliary changes in extrahepatic portal venous obstruction: Prevalence of thrombotic risk factors in series of routinely investigated, consecutive adult patients with non tumorous cwvernoma non cirrhotic, acute or chronic, PVT[ ].

N Engl J Med. This mild, transient, ascites is due to intestinal venous congestion in the absence of the mechanisms activated in liver cirrhosis[ 6364 ]. In the future, due venq innovations in imaging and pharmaceuticals, clinical attention must be focused on the realization of a scheduled, preemptive, therapeutic approach to the patient, to better define the profile of toxicity and reduce side effects, especially in cirrhotic patients.

Successful recanalization of portal vein thrombosis before liver transplantation using transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt. A retrospective analysis of cases and associated clinical implications.

Furthermore, patients with an obstruction of more than half of the portal vein, extended or not to the superior mesenteric vein, seem to have increased risk of severe peri-operative complications, higher mortality, and decreased long-term survival[ 85, ]. A prospective multicentric follow-up study on patients with acute portal vein thrombosis PVT: Advanced disease in the absence of obvious precipitating factors.

Three-dimensional portaa MR angiography of vascular complications after liver transplantation.

In the past, PVT was considered an absolute contraindication for liver transplantation. Furthermore, hypersplenism and, consequently, pancytopenia, are commonly present in chronic PVT[ 1 ]; however, if one branch of the portal vein is preserved and the portal pressure is quite normal, potra may even be absent.


Sobhonslidsuk A, Reddy KR. Extensive mesenteric vein and portal vein thrombosis successfully treated by thrombolysis and anticoagulation. MRI might also confirm the vascular occlusion; at spin-echo MR, the clot appears isointense on T1- weighted images, or hyperintense if recent, and usually has a more intense signal on T2 images. Results from the european network for vascular disorders of the liver en-vie Hepatology. Moreover, PVT might have indirect effects on other abdominal organs, causing intestinal ischemia and infarction, or predisposition to vascular neoformation and gastrointestinal bleeding.

Catheter-directed thrombolysis with transjugular access in portal vein thrombosis secondary to pancreatitis. Typically, patients with an advanced thrombosis do not always remember any previous trigger event or disease[ 226364 ].

Intestinal congestion and ischemia are typical manifestations of acute PVT; abdominal pain or distention, diarrhea, rectal bleeding, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, fever, lactacidosis, splenomegaly and sepsis might be variably present[ 6364 ]. Although PVT might be compared to other cases of deep vein thrombosis, there is no randomized controlled trial regarding the use of anticoagulants in acute PVT[ ].

Treatment of portal venous thrombosis with selective superior mesenteric artery infusion of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator. Despite the high incidence of side effects, thrombolysis should be considered when initial anticoagulant therapy fails, even if there is no consistent evidence concerning in which conditions it should be preferred to anticoagulation[ ].

Extrahepatic portal vein thrombosis: Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt. GA prothrombin gene mutation and porat trombophilic polymorphisms in patients with portal or hepatic venous thrombosis. Currently, thanks to great innovations in medical care, surgical techniques, and radiological interventions, this belief has been confounded and PVT by itself can represent an indication for liver transplantation[ 1164, ].
