PMID:  12761318     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A patient developed severe hepatic insufficiency after creation of a transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt, which was treated unsuccessfully with a constrained Wallstent ("reducing stent"). After a failed attempt at occluding the shunt with an occlusion balloon, a detachable balloon was placed at the portal end of the constrained stent. This balloon-modified reducing stent reduced flow while maintaining shunt patency, and the patient's hepatic insufficiency improved. She went on to undergo successful liver transplantation several months later.
