Thrombosis of Portal Vein

Dr. L. Siddhartha [3] | Saba Ruksaar | Hajra Fatima

Abstract: Cirrhosis and portal hypertension is the most prevalent causes of portal vein thrombosis (PVT) in the general medical population; however, it can also be caused by liver tumors (Plessier, 2021). In most cases, the diagnosis is made as a result of an imaging test finding a thrombus in the portal vein. Symptoms of PVT, such as ischemic hepatitis, liver problems, or small intestine infarction, can be life - threatening if left untreated. Pathophysiology of this illness is discussed in length, with an emphasis on PVT in cirrhotics, and extensive advice is provided on the best diagnostic and treatment options.
