• Hepatic
  • Normally, it is a low pressure system with the portal pressure gradient (portal vein pressure minus hepatic vein pressure) of less than 5 mm Hg. (cancertherapyadvisor.com)
  • Augmenting BCPA with an additional source of blood flow containing hepatic factor limits the degree of intrapulmonary arteriovenous shunting and may help provide successful longer term palliation. (bmj.com)
  • 3-5 If the integrity of the pulmonary vasculature is dependent on hepatic factor then its abrupt elimination from the pulmonary circulation after BCPA would lead to early diffusion-perfusion impairment and arteriovenous intrapulmonary shunting before the development of PAVM. (bmj.com)
  • colon
  • K11.4) Salivary gland fistula (K31.6) Fistula of stomach and duodenum (K31.6) Gastrocolic fistula (K31.6) Gastrojejunocolic fistula - after a Billroth II a fistula forms between the transverse colon and the upper jejunum (which, post Billroth II, is attached to the remainder of the stomach).

  • splenomegaly
  • Earlier described as Banti's disease, tropical splenomegaly syndrome or Bengal splenomegaly, or hepatoportal sclerosis, it is more popularly known as idiopathic portal hypertension (IPH), or non-cirrhotic portal fibrosis (NCPF) ( Figure 2 ). (clinicaladvisor.com)
  • In another model of indwelling cannulation of the gastrosplenic vein, repeated injections of Escherichia coli resulted in the development of splenomegaly and an increase in portal pressure at 3 months. (clinicaladvisor.com)
  • Surgical
  • Various surgical procedures are commonly used, most commonly fistulotomy, placement of a seton (a cord that is passed through the path of the fistula to keep it open for draining), or an endorectal flap procedure (where healthy tissue is pulled over the internal side of the fistula to keep feces or other material from reinfecting the channel).

  • present
  • Method We reviewed the existing literature as well as present a unique anecdotal case of a patient presenting with a very large portal vein aneurysm that was successfully managed conservatively and non-operatively without anticoagulation, with close follow-up and routine surveillance.

  • evidence
  • The aim of our study was to look for evidence of arteriovenous shunting following BCPA in the absence of angiographic evidence of PAVM. (bmj.com)
