Abstract

Endovascular Treatment of Symptomatic Intrahepatic Portosystemic Venous Shunt Using Amplatzer Vascular Plug II

Spontaneous intrahepatic portosystemic venous shunt (IPSVS) is a rare condition that implies abnormal communication between portal and systemic venous system within the liver parenchyma. It can be asymptomatic or present with symptoms of hepatic encephalopathy. We show a case of 74-year-old female patient with symptomatic IPSVS and successful endovascular treatment using Amplatzer Vascular Plug (AVP) II.
