• renal
  • In older patients who have worse preoperative liver and renal functions, portal vein embolisation enhances the possibility to perform extended right-sided hepatic resection for hepatobiliary malignancies with potentially lower operative mortality and morbidity. (hkmj.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)
  • preoperative
  • To determine whether preoperative portal vein embolisation improves the operative outcome of patients undergoing extended right-sided hepatic resection for hepatobiliary malignancy. (hkmj.org)
  • artery
  • Approximately 75% of total liver blood flow is through the portal vein, with the remainder coming from the hepatic artery proper. (wikipedia.org)
  • The position of the correct artery or vein supplying the pathology in question is located by digital subtraction angiography (DSA). (wikipedia.org)
  • The head surrounds two blood vessels, the superior mesenteric artery and vein. (wikipedia.org)
  • From the back of the head emerges a small uncinate process which extends to the back of the superior mesenteric vein and ends at the superior mesenteric artery. (wikipedia.org)
  • The neck is about 2.5 cm (1 in) long and lies between the head and the body and in front of the superior mesenteric artery and vein. (wikipedia.org)
  • the superior mesenteric vein runs upward on the right side of the artery and, behind the neck, joins with the lienal vein to form the portal vein. (wikipedia.org)
  • percutaneous
  • Among them, 15 (16%) underwent portal vein embolisation via a percutaneous ipsilateral approach (n=9) or through the ileocolic vein with a mini-laparotomy (n=6). (hkmj.org)
  • inflammatory
  • An inflammatory reaction is usually present, mainly in the superficial veins and, for this reason this pathology is called most of the time thrombophlebitis. (wikipedia.org)
  • superior
  • The venous system finally coalesces into two major veins: the superior vena cava (roughly speaking draining the areas above the heart) and the inferior vena cava (roughly speaking from areas below the heart). (wikipedia.org)
  • develops
  • More recently, it was shown that portal-mesenteric vein glucose sensing is particularly important when hypoglycemia develops slowly and, under these conditions, modulates over 90% of the sympathoadrenal response to hypoglycemia ( 9 ). (diabetesjournals.org)
  • infusion
  • Animal studies have repeatedly demonstrated that blocking portal glucose sensing via portal glucose infusion ( 7 ) or denervating the portal vein ( 8 ) substantially suppresses the sympathoadrenal response to hypoglycemia. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Radiographic image of the portal vein and its branches in the transplant recipient before infusion of isolated islets. (wikipedia.org)
