PURPOSE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of a stent-graft designed for a transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS), assess angiographic and hepatic biologic responses to polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)-encapsulated stents, and compare with a bare stent. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twelve TIPS (eight with flexible PTFE-encapsulated balloon-expandable stent-grafts and four control TIPS with bare Wallstents) were created in 12 pigs. Shunt venography was performed at 1-month intervals and… CONTINUE READING
