A new, staged surgical approach to the treatment of Budd-Chiari syndrome complicated by inferior vena caval obstruction has been described. The first stage consists of a mesoatrial shunt. After an interval to allow hepatic decongestion, re-establishment of caval flow and overall improvement in the status of the patient, a portacaval shunt is established and the mesoatrial shunt removed. Such a staged procedure produced an excellent result in the patient reported upon in this study and represents a treatment option in similar patients with Budd-Chiari syndrome complicated by obstruction of the inferior vena cava.
