Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Portal hypertension is a relatively common condition, the complications of which are frequently life threatening. Patients with portal hypertension represent an important por tion of the daily clinical work of abdominal radiologists, gastroenterologists and abdominal surgeons. During the past two decades the development of new radiological devices and of new percutaneous image-guided treatment methods has resulted in fundamental changes in the clinical management of patients with portal hypertension. During the same period tremen dous progress was achieved in the visualization of the numerous morphological and func tional changes observed in patients with portal hypertension, due to the clinical introduc tion of the new cross-sectional imaging methods: ultrasonography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. I am very grateful to Prof. Plinio Rossi, an internationally recognized leader in the field of interventional radiology, for accepting the challenging task of compiling and presenting in a structured way the numerous facts and data that have become available during the past few years in this rapidly developing field. The editor has been inspired and successful in his selection of the impressive group of international experts that has contributed to many chapters of this volume.

Book excerpt: Advances in our knowledge of the pathogenesis and management of portal hypertension and its complications over the last 2 decades have been astronomical. However, most of the management strategies remain palliative and serves as a bridge to liver transplantation. Despite the availability of a number of books in the field of hepatology, portal hypertension as the main life-threatening complication needs a dedicated book to link between recent advances in research and current clinical practice. This book includes dedicated chapters on gastric varices management, ectopic varices management, sinusoidal obstruction syndrome, portal hypertensive bilopathy, portal hypertension as a risk factor in nonhepatic abdominal surgery, idiopathic portal hypertension, and portal hypertension in pregnancy. As all other chapters, they represent updates on the recent advances and were written by well-known experts in such areas. It also includes a self-assessment section for evaluation of the level benefit obtained from reading this book. Many illustrations, tables, lists, algorithms, figures, and colour plates are included to serve the educational purpose of this book.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Portal hypertension is the abnormal pathophysiologic state that develops in liver cirrhosis and certain other disorders with characteristic clinical and hemodynamic features. There has been great progress in our under standing and management of portal hypertension, particularly in the diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. The so-called Banti's syndrome, a disorder whose existence had long been questioned, is now a well-defined portal hypertensive disease. The recently introduced Doppler ftowmetry is currently yielding new information on portal hemodynamics. Endoscopic sclerotherapy and beta-blockers have come to be widely used in the man agement and prevention of variceal bleeding. In spite of all these advances, a number of unsolved questions remain, such as whether sclerotherapy, pharmacotherapy or surgery is warranted for prevention of bleeding, which is more effective as an elective treatment, the surgical or endoscopic approach, and whether surgical portacaval shunt should be totally replaced by selective shunt operations. These new developments and problems are clearly and comprehensively described and discussed by the foremost authorities in 44 chapters, which are divided into five sections: 1) Patho physiology, 2) Hemodynamic Investigations, 3) Imaging Investigations, 4) Clinical and Pathological Features, and 5) Esophageal and Gastrointestinal Bleeding. The primary goal of this monograph, to provide a framework of patho physiology of portal hypertension with authoritative descriptions of the clinical and laboratory manifestations of various portal hypertensive dis orders, has clearly been achieved by these excellent contributions.

Book excerpt: Patient providers need to continue to stay abreast of the advances in the care of patients with advanced liver disease. They will continue to be exposed to a greater number of patients with cirrhosis, a reflection of the increasing burden of liver disease in patients where non-alcoholic steatohepatitis and even hepatitis C mature to cirrhosis. Although the hepatitis C viral infection can be eliminated, the natural history of the disease will not be necessarily completely altered. For this issue on Portal Hypertension, recognized authorities in these areas stress the relevance, utility, and novelty in their clinical review articles so that they can be used by practicing providers, quoted in the medical literature, and referenced in lectures. Topics addressed are Portal Hypertension, Sarcopenia, Hepatic Encephalopathy, Varices, Ascites and Hepatorenal Syndrome, Pulmonary Complications, Pharmacologic Management, Non-Cirrhotic Portal Hypertension, and Surgery in the Portal Hypertension Patient.

Book excerpt: Current recommendations for diagnosis and management of portal hypertension This book presents the proceedings from the 'Baveno IV International Consensus Workshop: Methodology of diagnosis and treatment in portal hypertension' which was held on April 28-29, 2005 in Baveno, Italy. These meetings are important to raise awareness of difficulties and defining some key events related to portal hypertension and variceal bleeding. They also help to produce guidelines aimed at improving trials conducted in this field. Since the Baveno III meeting, new diagnostic tools, new drugs and new treatment strategies for portal hypertension have been developed. Therefore this book updates recommendations for diagnosis and management. It includes evidence from the workshop on pathophysiology, natural history, methods of evaluation and established treatments of portal hypertension. In addition, this books looks at important emerging topics such as the role of coagulation disturbances, portopulmonary hypertension and the hepatopulmonary syndrome, hepato-renal syndrome, spontaneous bacterial peritonitis, and infections. This gives clinicians and investigators current evidence and helps to inform treatment decisions.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Portal hypertension is the most important complication of a great variety of both acute and chronic liver diseases. Nevertheless, hepatic cirrhosis is the most frequent cause of portal hypertension. Gastrointestinal bleeding due to rupture of oesophageal varices is, without doubt, the most severe complication of portal hypertension. At present, great advances are being made in the pathophysiology and in the development of new therapeutic tools for controlling and preventing this severe clinical event. This book contains the papers presented and discussed during the Symposium on 'Portal Hypertension in the 21st Century', held in Montréal, Canada, in April 2004, and sponsored by Axcan Pharma Inc. and NicOx S.A.
