390 Possible Causes for Portosystemic, Shunts, Surgical

  • Dementia

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

  • Hypoglycemia

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

  • 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.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt and distal splenorenal shunt are increasingly being performed in the management of these patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] in addition to shunt closure if a remarkable increase of portal vein pressure is observed by the shunt occlusion test.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Laceration

    She was diagnosed with bilateral pneumothoraces, pneumomediastinum, pneumopericardium and surgical emphysema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract The transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) is an acceptable procedure that has proven benefits in the treatment of patients who have complications from[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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[clinicaltrials.gov] 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.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Surgery was performed, during which we implanted a shunt valve. The patient recovered from surgery without any new deficits.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Umbilical Hernia

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

  • Rectal Bleeding

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

  • Splenectomy

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

  • 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The percentage of reduction in butorphanol CL was highly correlated to the estimated degree of portosystemic shunts in the patients with hepatic impairment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] PURPOSE: Subcutaneous tunneling for ventriculoperitoneal shunt insertion is the most painful step of this surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hepatoblastoma

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