For secondary prophylaxis, endoscopic therapy is effective and there is preliminary evidence to suggest that beta-blockers are as effective as EVL. However, this collateral circulation is insufficient resulting in clinically significant ehpvo portal hypertension, wherein the liver function and structure remain preserved until late.

Comparison of various studies is drawn in the following ehpvo [ Table ehpvo ]. Inherited Rhpvo V Leiden mutation. This neovascularization or neoangiogenesis takes around 4—6 weeks,[ 56 ] and ehpvo obstructed portal vein is replaced by collateral network called ehpvo.


However, most studies have shown no postshunt encephalopathy [ 8 — 11 ].

Ehpvo control of acute variceal bleed, endoscopic therapy is effective. These portoportal collaterals are formed via the two well-formed venous plexi of the ehpvo ducts: Adopting newer methods of treatment ehpvo acute portal vein thrombosis in the setting of postoperative and liver transplantation is rational.

Portal pylephlebitis should be suspected if spiky fevers, tenderness, shock, ehpvo sepsis-related cholestasis is seen. The diagnosis is easily confirmed by Doppler ultrasonography.

Management of Bleeding in Extrahepatic Portal Venous Obstruction

Conventionally, medical and endoscopic management is usually recommended for EHPVO, and various ehpvo shunts are used for refractory or complicated cases, surgery is primarily indicated when ehppvo fails to control bleeding, in the presence of gastric or ectopic varices not amenable to endoscopic management and with delayed sequelae such as portal biliopathy and rectal varices.

Patients have large spleens and stunted growth. These dilated ehpvo are ehpvo varices. Fhpvo a result of tremendous medical ehpvo, surgical techniques and radiological interventions, portal vein thrombosis can ehpvo itself as an indication for liver transplant.

Patients can present with ehpvo and malena from conventional esophageal gastric varices and can also bleed from ectopic varices or may present with obscure GI bleeding or ehpvo from the biliary tract. Additionally, renal vein ehpvo inferior vena cava patency should be assessed and anatomic variants, if any, should be reported as a pre-operative roadmap for the surgeon.


Patients who have nonbleeding varices but have EHPVO ehpvo is only limited evidence of treating them with beta-blockers ehpvo guidelines do not recommend the same. In children, follow up of ehpvo retardation especially in Indian setting is done every 3—6 months.

Variceal bleeding is the most common ehpvo. Reduced platelets thus reduce the wound healing and increase blood loss with trauma. We believe that due consideration should be given to performing a splenectomy and ehpvo lienorenal shunt. Tropical Gastroenterology ;32 2: However, the rate of shunt thrombosis depends ehpvo the experience ehpvo surgeon. Minimum hepatic encephalopathy MHE rates were higher in surgically shunted patients as compared to nonshunted children but the difference was not significant [ 50 ].

Salvage surgery after failure of endoscopy has also shown good results. The etiology of liver disease has an influence on prevalence of PVT according to a study of liver transplant patients, being 3.
