The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) with that of endoscopic sclerotherapy (ES) in the long-term management of patients with cirrhosis after variceal bleeding. Seventy-eight consecutive cirrhotic patients with recent variceal bleeding were randomly allocated to either TIPS (n=38) or ES(More)
The effects of transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) placement on esophageal motor function and gastroesophageal reflux were investigated in patients with esophageal varices. In six men with esophageal varices, esophageal manometry and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy were performed before and 15–20 days after TIPS placement. Intraesophageal(More)
Some cirrhotic patients have hepatic veno–venous communications (HVVC) and large porto-systemic collaterals. However, the relationship between wedged hepatic vein pressure (WHVP) and portal vein pressure (PVP) in such patients is not clear. The aim of this study was to determine the relationships between simultaneously measured WHVP and PVP, and occluded(More)
Five cirrhotic patients with refractory ascites were treated with transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS). Before TIPS, although patients were received salt restriction (5 g/day), diuretic therapy (furosemide 112 mg/day, spironolactone 140 mg/day), albumin infusion and paracentesis, ascites did not show improvement. After TIPS, urine volume and(More)
