Successful treatment of partial portal vein thrombosis (PVT) with low dose rivaroxaban.

Abstract

In a 63-year-old cirrhotic patient, recanalisation of a partial portal vein thrombosis was achieved by a low dose of rivaroxaban (10 mg daily). After anticoagulant therapy was stopped, partial vein thrombosis recurred. Restarting rivaroxaban at a dose of 10 mg led to recanalisation. The patient did not suffer any complications; in particular no bleeding occurred during 8 months of treatment.
