PMID:  2289766     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The portal circulation has long been relatively inaccessible to clinical investigation, a fact which has hindered the management of patients with portal hypertension. In recent years an increasing number of techniques have become available for hemodynamic evaluation of the portal circulation. This review discusses the most important of these, and attempts to highlight clinical situations in which hemodynamic assessment may be of value to the individual patient.
