OBJECTIVE Thrombophilic gene mutations have been reported to be associated with the formation of portal vein thrombosis (PVT). This study aimed to investigate the role of thrombophilic gene mutations in cirrhotic patients with PVT. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 74 cirrhotic patients (17 with PVT, 57 without PVT), and 19 non-cirrhotic patients with PVT and 80 healthy controls were included. Factor V Leiden G1691A, prothrombin G20210A and methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase C677T mutations… CONTINUE READING
