Extensive portal vein thrombosis is no longer considered a contraindication for liver transplantation. With cavoportal hemitransposition (portal diversion) or other surgical techniques, patients with portal vein thrombosis who would otherwise succumb to their liver disease are able to receive a transplant. A series of three cases is presented describing the evaluation and liver transplant procedures in patients with portal vein thrombosis. Sonography is shown to be an important tool both for diagnosing portal vein thrombosis and evaluating the portal system following transplantation.
Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
