PMID:  8402789     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 57-year-old woman presented with hepatic encephalopathy, cirrhosis, and a dual-channel portosystemic venous shunt (PSVS). The shunt was treated successfully by embolization with steel coils via retrograde systemic venous access. Encephalopathy resolved. This new approach is considered safer than the previously reported percutaneous transhepatic route or the mesenteric venous route, requiring a mini-laparotomy.
