Perioperative Strategies and Thrombophilia in Children with Extrahepatic Portal Vein Obstruction Undergoing the Meso-Rex Bypass

Abstract

Extrahepatic portal vein obstruction (EHPVO) is an important cause of chronic portal hypertension in children. Although usually idiopathic in etiology, genetic and acquired thrombophilia have been implicated in EHPVO. Meso-Rex bypass is increasingly used to treat EHPVO in children.
