Intraoperative Doppler color flow imaging combined with regulation of arterial inflow during surgery for intrahepatic arterioportal fistula

Large fistulas associated with impaired liver function should be treated by direct obliteration or removal of the shunt orifice. In a large shunt with the portal branch lying on the arterial branch, identification of the exact site of the fistula can be a challenge. We report a case of impaired liver function due to a large intrahepatic arterioportal… CONTINUE READING
