390 Possible Causes for Portosystemic, Shunts, Surgical

  • Dementia

    Little is known about the differential impact of dementia on surgical outcomes.[] Embolization of the portosystemic shunt might be more effective for patients without liver disease as in the present case.[] Some symptoms can be treated by draining the extra fluid from the brain into the abdomen through a long, thin tube, called a shunt.[]

  • Hypoglycemia

    Minimally invasive surgery, a newly developed approach, is a good choice among surgical procedures to avoid unnecessary extensive pancreatectomy.[] We herein describe the case of a 5-month-old boy with CHH due to congenital portosystemic shunt (CPSS).[] After surgical removal, blood glucose stabilized. Histological examination confirmed the fibrous tumor that proved to be malignant on immunochemistry.[]

  • Splenorenal Shunt

    Abstract We present a case with hepatic myelopathy (HM) due to a surgical splenorenal shunt that was successfully treated by endovascular interventional techniques.[] Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt and distal splenorenal shunt are increasingly being performed in the management of these patients.[] […] in addition to shunt closure if a remarkable increase of portal vein pressure is observed by the shunt occlusion test.[]

  • Laceration

    She was diagnosed with bilateral pneumothoraces, pneumomediastinum, pneumopericardium and surgical emphysema.[] Abstract The transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) is an acceptable procedure that has proven benefits in the treatment of patients who have complications from[] We highlight the need of urgent surgical exploration in all patients whose condition is unstable in the setting of blunt thoracic trauma regardless of imaging conclusions.[]

  • Myelopathy

    Treatment B: Dorsal/posterior neck surgery (one of the two surgical procedures listed below): Dorsal decompression/fusion or dorsal laminoplasty (no fusion) Functional outcomes[] Liver cirrhosis patients with (n 25) and without (n 18) HM after transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt and 26 healthy controls were enrolled in this study.[] Surgery was performed, during which we implanted a shunt valve. The patient recovered from surgery without any new deficits.[]

  • Umbilical Hernia

    INTRODUCTION: The surgical treatment of umbilical hernia in cirrhosis patients raises special management challenges.[] Abstract Caput medusa is a frequent incidental finding in patients with portal hypertension that usually represents paraumbilical vein portosystemic collateral vessels draining[] INTRODUCTION: Recently, placement of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt via a transumbilical approach has been reported.[]

  • Rectal Bleeding

    Twenty-three individuals had an unmet surgical need secondary to rectal bleeding (1.2%, 95% confidence interval 0.8%-1.8%).[] We report a case of successful transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt in controlling massive recurrent rectal variceal bleeding in an elderly male patient.[] RESULTS: In total 69/718 patients were previously submitted to one or more surgical procedures, mostly cholecystectomy (n 21) and appendectomy (n 27).[]

  • Splenectomy

    Up to now, its etiology remains unknown, and the best surgical procedure is still an area to explore in the future.[] OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to introduce a modified transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS), a percutaneous transhepatic intrahepatic portosystemic[] A splenectomy is a surgical procedure in which all or part of the spleen are removed.[]

  • Butorphanol

    METHODS: Sixty children, aged 2 to 10 yrs, of ASA physical status I and II, scheduled for surgical procedures of 1 to 2 hrs duration were randomized to one of the two groups[] The percentage of reduction in butorphanol CL was highly correlated to the estimated degree of portosystemic shunts in the patients with hepatic impairment.[] PURPOSE: Subcutaneous tunneling for ventriculoperitoneal shunt insertion is the most painful step of this surgery.[]

  • Hepatoblastoma

    The SIOPEL-4 regime for metastatic hepatoblastoma has extended the surgical options with good results.[] Abstract Two children developed hepatoblastoma concurrent with congenital portosystemic shunts (PSSs) (Abernethy malformations).[] Liver transplant could be considered in patients with congenital portosystemic shunt and malignant liver tumors.[]
