The IGF system after insertion of a transjugular intrahepatic porto-systemic shunt in patients with liver cirrhosis.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Insertion of a transjugular intrahepatic porto-systemic shunt (TIPS) into patients with liver cirrhosis usually induces a gain in body cell mass. Changes in the IGF system in favor of anabolism may be involved.
