The subject of the indications for operation for portacaval shunt bristles with problems to which a satisfactory answer cannot yet be given. I have discussed those events which supervene after a portacaval shunt which, in the present state of knowledge, has been directed as proper and well-intentioned therapy. It is against the knowledge of such post-shunt events and the complexity of their management, as well as the success of the operation and the risk of mortality, that one must balance the indications for surgery. This is particularly pertinent to the application of prophylactic shunt surgery now under consideration.
