PSS is the only consistently effective therapy for bleeding esophagogastric varices from PVT and extrahepatic portal hypertension, resulting in many years of survival, freedom from recurrent bleeding, normal liver function, and no encephalopathy. Expand
Spontaneous rupture of the normal spleen; a surgical enigma.
A TECHNIQUE FOR ORTHOTOPIC LIVER TRANSPLANTATION IN THE RAT
Open liver biopsies were performed on long-term survivors at 3, 5, and 7 months and revealed essentially normal liver parenchyma, with slight mononuclear infiltration of the portal spaces and some sinusoidal dilatation. Expand
A 27-Year Experience With Surgical Treatment of Budd-Chiari Syndrome
SSPCS in BCS with hepatic vein occlusion alone results in reversal of liver damage, correction of hemodynamic disturbances, prolonged survival, and good quality of life when performed early in the course of BCS. Expand
PANCREATICODUODENAL TRANSPLANTATION IN THE RAT
The major complication, acute hemorrhagic pancreatitis, can be partially prevented by carefully ligating tributaries in the vicinity of the pancreas, reducing the is chemic time, perfusing with cold saline, and using a no-touch technique. Expand

Summary The timed intravenous infusion metrazol test makes possible an accurate, economical, and rapid evaluation of anticonvulsant compounds. It presents distinct advantages over the subcutaneous… Expand
Long-term results of treatment of Budd-Chiari syndrome with portal decompression.
Thirty-three patients with Budd-Chiari syndrome were studied for 1 to 19 years following portal decompression. All had ascites, hepatomegaly, abnormal liver function, angiographic demonstration of… Expand
Treatment of bleeding esophagogastric varices due to extrahepatic portal hypertension: results of portal-systemic shunts during 35 years.
From 1958 to 1990, elective therapeutic portal-systemic shunt (PSS) procedures were performed for recurrent bleeding esophagogastric varices in 162 children and adults with extrahepatic portal hypertension resulting from portal vein thrombosis, and 96% were gainfully employed, engaged in full-time homemaking, or attending school. Expand
Prospective randomized trial of emergency portacaval shunt and emergency medical therapy in unselected cirrhotic patients with bleeding varices
These survival rates produced by emergency shunt performed within 8 hr of initial contact confirm the effectiveness of this procedure observed in previous unrandomized studies. Expand
Budd-Chiari syndrome caused by Behçet's disease: treatment by side-to-side portacaval shunt.
This report presents the largest reported experience of Behçet's disease-related Budd-Chiari syndrome confined to the hepatic veins, and results of treatment by side-to-side portacaval shunt (SSPCS). Expand
