Portal vein thrombosis: Insight into physiopathology, diagnosis, and treatment

The incidence among cirrhotic patients is still unknown, but recent data suggest a prevalence of about 0. Incidentally, a pragmatic approach, such as endoscopical eradication of varices prior to commencement of anticoagulation, should be reasonable[ 79 ].

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 ]. Cavefnoma from the european network for vascular disorders of the liver en-vie Hepatology. Acknowledgments We give special thanks to Fondazione Ricerca in Medicina.

Consider a diagnosis of chronic PVT in any patient with newly diagnosed portal hypertension. Liver transplantation in patients with portal vein thrombosis.

In cirrhotics with PVT, surgical procedure may be more difficult, often complicated by rethrombosis and reintervention, but with the same morbidity and mortality of non-cirrhotic patients[,].

Evolving consensus in portal hypertension. Cause of portal or hepatic venous thrombosis in adults: Thrombendvenectomy for organized portal vein fe at the time of liver transplantation. The identification of protean manifestations of PVT is essential to provide a prompt diagnosis, as the removal of the original trigger factor and an early therapeutic management is crucial to preserve ce health and, sometimes, life. In contrast, other studies consider anticardiolipin antibodies simply as an epiphenomenon of liver damage[ 4144 ].


Vascular complications of orthotopic liver transplantation: Ten-year experience in vean hemitransposition for liver transplantation in the presence of portal vein thrombosis. Portal vein thrombosis and fatal pulmonary thromboembolism associated with oral contraceptive treatment.

Systemic risk factors, like MPD or other prothrombotic disorders, seem not to affect short-term survival[ 99 ]. Intraoperatory grading of PVT extension[ 17 ].

Clinical experience and surgical treatment in patients. Thrombolytic therapy, given either into the systemic venous circulation, the superior mesenteric artery, or the portal vein via a transjugular or transhepatic route, is also effective to provide recanalization in acute PVT[ – ].

In this review, we analyze the physiopathological mechanisms of PVT development, together with the hemodynamic and functional alterations related to this condition. Portal hypertension-related davernoma after acute portal vein thrombosis: Liver transplantation in adult patients with portal vein thrombosis: Clinical features, diagnosis and outcome of acute portal vein thrombosis.

If CT scan is not rapidly available, obtain Doppler-sonography. Etiology of portal vein thrombosis in adults.

J Pediatr Rio J ; In fact, when thrombosis is extended to both portal and mesenteric veins, the risk of bowel ischemia is considerable and mortality high, despite a lower risk of variceal bleeding[ 61 ]. Magnetic resonance portal venography: J Cardiovasc Surg Torino ; Several causes can be involved in the pathogenesis of PVT and, frequently, more than one coexist.

Instead, a rapid and complete obstruction of the portal or mesenteric vein, without the involvement of the mesenteric venous arches, induces only intestinal congestion; the main feature is a diffuse thickening of cavernnoma intestinal wall, visible even without alterations in contrast enhancement. However, these data have not been confirmed and features of liver transplantation, comparing recipients with PVT and those without, are similar[ 74- ].

Changing perspectives in portal vein thrombosis and liver transplantation.

The first successful liver transplant in a patient with a thrombosed portal vein was reported by Shaw cavernnoma al[ ], in Male sex, previous treatment for PVT, Child-Pugh class C, and alcoholic liver disease might be associated with recurrence[ 85cavdrnoma. Interestingly, this condition is usually well tolerated and patients are often asymptomatic, while an acute arterial obstruction always leads to a severe hepatic dysfunction, which is sometimes fatal.

Color Doppler ultrasonography in the diagnosis of cavernous transformation of the portal vein.

Portal vein thrombosis: Insight into physiopathology, diagnosis, and treatment

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. In PVT patients, liver function is typically conserved.

Direct vascular invasion, compression by tumor mass, or a hypercoagulable state are the mechanisms involved in neoplastic PVT development; hormonal factors might also play a role in this process, especially in men[ 162021 ].

However, efficacy is significantly lower and mortality increased in patients who undergo thrombolysis, if compared to conservative se 59, ].
