OBJECTIVES To determine the feasibility of spleen stiffness measurement in the evaluation of portal hemodynamics in patients undergoing transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) placement. METHODS We prospectively correlated the spleen stiffness as measured by the shear wave velocity with the portal pressure and portosystemic gradient in patients undergoing TIPS procedures. Twenty-three consecutive patients referred for placement of a TIPS were enrolled. Included in our study were… CONTINUE READING
