Goals and Objectives:
• Select appropriate candidates for transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) placement;
• Identify factors that contribute to the immediate and long-term clinical success of transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) placement using an expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE)–covered stent-graft;
• Stratify patients into risk groups on the basis of model for end-stage liver disease (MELD) scores; and
• Understand the relationships between portosystemic gradient, encephalopathy, and refractory ascites.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
