Portal vein thrombosis: Insight into physiopathology, diagnosis, and treatment

However, this process results in a progressive loss of tissue and might be portaa for the impairment of hepatic synthetic function observed in advanced stages of portal vein obstruction[ 11 ]. Table 2 Most frequent systemic risk factors for PVT[ 38917186479 ].

High risk of cerebral-vein thrombosis in carriers of a prothrombin-gene mutation and in users of oral contraceptives.

Systemic risk factors, like MPD or favernoma prothrombotic disorders, seem not to affect short-term survival[ 99 ].

Malformación cavernomatosa de la vena porta

Usually, the original portal vein becomes a thin, fibrotic cord, which is difficult to visualize[ 89 ]. Abstract Portal vein thrombosis PVT is a relatively common complication in patients with liver cirrhosis, but might also occur in absence of an overt liver disease. Formation of hilar collaterals or cavernous transformation after portal vein obstruction by hepatocellular carcinoma. Cholestasis as presenting symptom of portal cavernoma.

Risk factors and clinical presentation of portal vein thrombosis in patients with liver cirrhosis.

The clinical suspicion is often based on the incidental finding of hypersplenism, signs of portal hypertension or, less frequently, symptoms of portal cholangiopathy.

Bacteroides species and thrombotic events, such as PVT[ 40 – 43 ]. portw

In cirrhotics with PVT, the risk of variceal bleeding is nearly times higher than in patients without liver disease, although the outcome seems better[ 6566 ]. A unique clonal JAK2 mutation leading to constitutive signalling causes polycythaemia vera. On the other hand, chronic PVT can be nearly asymptomatic, except for the presence of varices, cutaneous collaterals, or ascites[ 62 ].

Doppler imaging can confirm the absence of flow in part or all the vasal lumen, and, if present, a cavernomatous transformation[ 22 ]. CT scanning is able to demonstrate hyperattenuating material in the portal vein lumen and the absence of enhancement after contrast injection.

Complete thrombosis of the portal vein trunk ultrasonography ; B, C: However, levels of prothrombin and other coagulation factors could be moderately decreased, while D-dimer is usually increased[ 822 ].

Prevalence of thrombotic risk factors in series of routinely investigated, consecutive adult patients with non tumorous and non cirrhotic, acute or chronic, PVT[ ]. The incidence among cirrhotic patients is still unknown, but recent data suggest a prevalence of about 0.

Today, thanks to the availability of more sensitive and less invasive imaging, together with the existence of curative or palliative procedures, PVT is routinely investigated and recognized without any difficulty[ 14 – 16 ].

Anticoagulation in acute PVT Although PVT might be compared to other cases of deep vein thrombosis, there is no randomized controlled trial regarding the use of anticoagulants in acute PVT[ ]. Frequently, more than one risk factor could be identified; however, occasionally no single factor is discernable. If CT scan is not rapidly available, obtain Doppler-sonography. 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.

Portal vein thrombosis: Insight into physiopathology, diagnosis, and treatment

Observations in ten patients. Results from the european network for vascular disorders of the liver en-vie Hepatology. It has been demonstrated in rats, that the progressive obliteration of the portal vein stimulates apoptosis of hepatocytes in the hypoperfused lobe[ 10 ], while increasing the mitotic activity in the normal perfused one. Chronic mesenteric venous thrombosis: Anticoagulation in cirrhotic patients The ubiquitous and long-term use of anticoagulants in cirrhotic patients with PVT should not be considered poeta practice, until their safety and efficacy has been completely tested[ 62 ].

Open in a separate window. Caverjoma vein thrombosis in candidates for liver transplantation: Moreover, we describe the principal factors most frequently involved in PVT development and the recent knowledge concerning diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

Caveernoma, the mechanism of PVT development is complex and multifactorial, and is not always attributable to a single risk factor. Factor V Leiden mutation, prothrombin gene mutation, and deficiencies in coagulation inhibitors associated with Budd-Chiari syndrome and portal vein thrombosis: Moreover, PVT might have indirect effects on other abdominal organs, causing intestinal ischemia and infarction, or predisposition to vascular neoformation cavernooma gastrointestinal plrta.

Diagnosis and management of mesenteric infarction. 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. Condat B, Valla D. Deciphering mesenteric venous thrombosis: Incidentally, US is less reliable in determining the extension of the thrombus to the mesenteric circulation[ 79 ].
