Validity of transhepatic pulp pressure measurements

Abstract

Cineangiographic studies were undertaken in conjunction with pressure measurements to determine the reliability of transhepatic pulp pressure manometry in assessing portal pressure. Pressure measurements obtained by wedged hepatic vein and/or umbilical-portal vein catheterization were used as a reference. An accurate index to intrasinusoidal pressure was… (More)
