AIM To determine the prognostic effect of portal hemodynamic responses after balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous obliteration (B-RTO) for gastric varices (GV) in cirrhosis patients. METHODS This retrospective study consisted of 37 cirrhosis patients (aged 62.5 ± 9.7 years) with medium- or large-grade GV treated with B-RTO. Portal hemodynamic response was assessed by the changes in flow volume in the portal trunk (PFV, mL/min) before and after the treatment. Group I showed increased PFV… CONTINUE READING
