Another method, percutaneous transhepatic occlusion of the coronary vein with obliteration of bleeding collateral esophageal varices, can be an effective treatment; patency of the portal vein, however, is a prerequisite. Before the spleen is removed, the splenic vein is dissected at the splenic porta so that the maximum length of the vein is available. Furthermore, another study was showed the use of terlipressin improves outcomes following acute variceal bleeding[ 93 ].

The coronary veins division needs a special care for an avoidance of postoperative hemorrhage or encephalopathy [Figure 18].


Distal Splenorenal Shunt

A distal splenorenal shunt DSRS is a type of surgery done to relieve extra pressure in the portal vein. The midline abdominal incision extended from xiphisternum to below the umbilicus. In this study, we review a single center’s experience in performing DSRS during a year period in a single institution with an active liver transplantation program.

Hepatic and intestinal schistosomiasis after orthotopic liver transplant. Then, the splenic vein trimmed and moves down and Satinsky clamp is applied to the left renal vein opened over sufficient length medially without removing clamps in which distla clamps should be held shhnt a tension-free anastomosis [ Figures 14 and 15 ]. During the follow-up period, color Doppler sonography was used to monitor shunt patency; these studies revealed shunt stenosis in 1 patient in Group I who ex-perienced recurrent attacks of hematemesis postopera-tively.

Furthermore, the cultural difficulties of organ donation post-brain death require more discussion by individuals and society for more response[ ].
