A joint study of the selective shunt in schistosomiasis was conducted in Egypt by the Mansoura University and Emory liver research teams. One hundred seventy patients with biopsy-proven hepatic schistosomiasis and a history of variceal bleeding were included in the study. The findings indicate that this procedure is safe and effective in the treatment of this patient population.
