Deficiency of natural anticoagulant proteins C, S, and antithrombin in portal vein thrombosis: Although in the general population PVT is considered a rare event, its prevalence among cirrhotic patients ranges between 4. CT scanning is able to demonstrate hyperattenuating material in the portal vein lumen cavernkma the absence of enhancement after contrast injection.

Anticoagulation in chronic PVT Opinions regarding therapeutic options in chronic PVT are more controversial and significantly variable. Liver transplantation in patients with portal vein thrombosis. Coagulation abnormalities in malignancy: Furthermore, some conditions should be considered in the assessment of anticoagulant therapy, such as recent vs old thrombosis, the presence of a thrombophilic condition, or a liver disease.

Currently, thanks to great innovations in medical care, surgical techniques, and radiological interventions, this belief has been confounded and PVT by itself can represent an indication for liver transplantation[ 1164, ]. Portal vein thrombosis in children and adolescents. Consensus on extra-hepatic portal vein obstruction. If CT scan is not rapidly available, obtain Doppler-sonography Obtain Doppler-sonography, then either CT scan or MRI, before and after a vascular contrast agent, to make a diagnosis of chronic PVT In patients with acute PVT and high fever, septic pylephlebitis should be considered, whether or not an abdominal source of infection has been identified, and blood cultures should be routinely obtained Base the diagnosis on the absence of a visible normal portal vein and its replacement with serpiginous veins In acute PVT, the possibility of intestinal infarction should be considered from presentation until resolution of pain.


A prospective multicentric follow-up study on patients with acute portal vein thrombosis PVT: Risk factors and clinical presentation of portal vein thrombosis in patients with liver cirrhosis.

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 the intestinal wall, visible even without alterations in contrast enhancement.

Portal vein caveroma TIPS: Contrast-enhanced three-dimensional MR portography. Unfortunately, in cavernomz, this policy is not applicable without difficulty. However, the limit of EUS is the presence of a relatively blind area, which cannot be investigated, involving the distal superior mesenteric vein and the intrahepatic portion of the portal vein[ 76 ].

Portal vein thrombosis in cirrhotics: Nat Clin Pract Gastroenterol Hepatol. Single center experience of 39 patients with preoperative portal vein thrombosis among adult living donor liver transplantations.

Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt. 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 patient health and, sometimes, life. Dose and duration of anticoagulants If thrombosis is recent and there is no underlying thrombophilic condition, anticoagulation should be administered for mo, as a complete portal vein recanalization can occasionally be delayed[ 79,- ].


Otherwise, prognosis depends on the underlying liver disease[ 1122279 ]. Advanced disease in the absence of obvious precipitating factors.

Usually, the original portal vein becomes a thin, fibrotic cord, which is difficult to visualize[ 89 ].

Iatrogenic fine needle aspiration of abdominal masses etc. Consider a lorta of acute PVT in any patient with abdominal pain of more than 24 h duration, whether or not there is also fever or ileus. Extrahepatic portal vein thrombosis.

Systemic risk factors, like MPD or other prothrombotic disorders, seem not to affect short-term survival[ 99 ]. Anticoagulation in cirrhotic patients The ubiquitous and long-term use of anticoagulants in cirrhotic patients with PVT should not be considered correct practice, until their safety and efficacy has been completely tested[ vavernoma ].

PVT onset can be acute or chronic. Intraoperatory grading of PVT extension[ cavrrnoma ]. The term portal vein thrombosis PVT refers to the complete or partial obstruction of blood flow in the portal vein, due to the presence of a thrombus in the vasal lumen[ 1 ].

If no local pporta factor is found, the presence of a thrombophilic disorder must be investigated. Furthermore, PVT clinical presentation is different in the context of acute or chronic onset and depends on the development and the extent of a collateral circulation.
