The transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic
shunt (TIPS) procedure--which involves creation of a shunt through the hepatic parenchyma connecting the hepatic vein to the portal vein--is one of the most complex procedures performed by the interventional radiologist.
His published works include "Resolution of hypoxemia in a liver transplant recipient after ligation of a portosystemic
Pelle, from Oslo, Norway, was diagnosed with an intrahepatic portosystemic
liver shunt when he was three months old.
The other treatment options for pancreatic AVM are transarterial embolization (TAE), transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic
shunt (TIPS), vascular ligation and radiation therapy.
venous shunts are rare vascular anomalies that may be detected in asymptomatic patients, given the recent advances in radiological imaging techniques.
This rate increases to 35% in patients who have hepatocellular carcinoma or who have undergone surgical portosystemic
shunt surgery (19,20).
Contribution of the apelin/APJ system to portosystemic
collateralization and splanchnic neovascularization in portal hypertensive rats has been also reported (18).
The topics include a natural history of the cirrhotic patient, chronic portosystemic
encephalopathy and its management, managing complications of liver transplantation, obesity and its hepatic complications in adults and children, and an approach to metabolic and storage diseases.
Most children in the successful group presented just before puberty and were able to re-canalise or spontaneously achieve adequate portosystemic
collaterisation (thought to be hormonally induced), which could have contributed to this observation.

This operation was commonplace until the 1980s when advancements in endovascular stenting resulted in the DSRS being gradually supplanted by the Transjugular Intrahepatic Portosystemic
Shunt (TIPS) procedure.
