Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My mother has been suffering from Budd-Chiari syndrome, polycythemia vera, and hypothyroidism. She had undergone hepatic stenting and balloon angioplasty. What is the survival rate after this surgery?

Please help.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I went through your query and understood your concern.

I request you give her full medical history. This disorder is not life-threatening if the liver functions are stable. Once the liver deteriorates, the timing of which varies in individuals, one should start thinking about transplantation. The survival rate depends on how the body behaves.

I hope this has helped you.

Thanks and regards.
