  • acute
  • Four months after the acute onset, when no signs of infection were present, portal decompression was performed to treat refractory ascites. (osti.gov)
  • inflammatory
  • Intrathymic injections of MBP or autogeneic brain cell suspensions functioned by both suppressing secondary inflammatory reactions and improving prognoses, whereas hepatic portal vein injections of autogeneic brain cell suspensions exerted a better effect than MBP. (physiciansweekly.com)
  • ascites
  • In follow-up imaging studies the stent and the portal vein were still patent 12 months after the intervention and total resolution of the ascites was observed. (osti.gov)
  • capillaries
  • The hepatic portal system begins in the capillaries of the digestive organs and ends in the portal vein. (biology-online.org)
  • While humans, as well as other vertebrates, have a closed cardiovascular system (meaning that the blood never leaves the network of arteries, veins and capillaries), some invertebrate groups have an open cardiovascular system. (wikipedia.org)
  • After their passage through body tissues, capillaries merge once again into venules, which continue to merge into veins. (wikipedia.org)
  • pelvic
  • Superficial venous thromboses cause discomfort but generally not serious consequences, as do the deep venous thromboses (DVTs) that form in the deep veins of the legs or in the pelvic veins. (wikipedia.org)
  • systemic
  • The portal venous system has several anastomoses with the systemic venous system . (wikipedia.org)
  • In carrying venous blood from the gastrointestinal tract to the liver, the portal vein accomplishes two tasks: it supplies the liver with metabolic substrates and it ensures that substances ingested are first processed by the liver before reaching the systemic circulation . (wikipedia.org)
  • The concept behind the procedure is based on the dual blood supply that is characteristic of the liver, with 60-75% deriving from the portal circulation and the remaining from the arterial systemic one. (wikipedia.org)
  • hypertensive
  • Noradrenergic transmission in the isolated portal vein of the spontaneously hypertensive rat. (ahajournals.org)
  • The effect of electrical field stimulation (1, 2, 5, 10 Hz for a total of 480 pulses at 15-minute intervals) on the release of 3H-norepinephrine from the superfused portal vein of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) or Wistar-Kyoto rats (WKY) of various ages was studied. (ahajournals.org)
  • catheter
  • During the transplant, a radiologist uses ultrasound and radiography to guide placement of a catheter through the upper abdomen and into the portal vein of the liver. (wikipedia.org)
  • pancreas
  • Measuring approximately 8 cm (3 inches) in adults, the portal vein is located in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen, originating behind the neck of the pancreas . (wikipedia.org)
