Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This review will discuss the use of transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic stent-shunt in a number of relatively uncommon clinical situations. In particular, we will focus our paper on the use of transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic stent-shunt for hepatic hydrothorax, hepatopulmonary syndrome, veno-occlusive disease, portal hypertensive gastropathy and gastric antral vascular ectasia, before surgery and after liver transplantation.
