About "portal hypertension treatment"

The vein that carries blood from the digestive organs like pancreas and stomach to the liver is called the portal vein. When the pressure exerted by the blood on the walls of this vein is high, it is called portal hypertension. The symptoms and complications include gastrointestinal bleeding, accumulation of fluid in the abdomen (ascites), and encephalopathy. The treatment aims to manage the symptoms and complications. The treatment options are:

 

 

  • Sclerotherapy or banding to stop gastrointestinal bleeding.
  • Lifestyle changes.
  • Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS).
  • Distal splenorenal shunt (DSRS).
