La hipertensión portal es un síndrome complejo producido por un aumento de la resistencia al flujo venoso esplácnico a nivel de la vena porta o sus ramas, con una circulación sistémica hiperdinámica caracterizada por vasodilatación periférica y aumento del gasto cardíaco. El sitio de obstrucción al flujo portal puede ser prehepático (hígado normal), intrahepático (como en la cirrosis) o posthepático (síndrome de BuddChiari). En los pacientes pediátricos, las causas prehepáticas e intrahepáticas se reparten en proporciones casi iguales (aproximadamente el 50 % cada una). La expresión clínica y el impacto individual son muy variados, pero en todos los casos expresan un deterioro en la salud de los pacientes y la necesidad de corregir el problema, tanto en sus consecuencias como, idealmente, en sus causas.

Portal hypertension is a complex syndrome caused by increased resistance to the splachnic venous flow at the portal vein level, with a hyperdynamic systemic circulation characterized by peripheral vasodilation and high cardiac output. Portal flow can be obstructed at prehepatic (¨normal liver¨), intrahepatic (as in cirrhosis), or post-hepatic level (as in Budd-Chiari syndrome). In pediatric patients, prehepatic and intrahepatic causes are almost equally distributed (nearly 50% each). Clinical presentation and individual impact are heterogeneous, but in each case, it is the expression of a worsening condition and the need to solve the problem, either by treating its consequences or (ideally) its causes.

Resumo A trombose de veia porta (TVP) é uma doença na qual ocorre trombose desde os ramos intra-hepáticos da veia porta, podendo se estender até a veia esplênica e/ou veia mesentérica superior, estando associada, na maioria das vezes, à cirrose hepática. A TVP não associada a cirrose é rara. O objetivo deste artigo foi relatar dois casos de TVP não associados à cirrose, que foram tratados com anticoagulação e tiveram evolução clínica satisfatória.

Abstract Portal vein thrombosis (PVT) is a disease in which thrombosis occurs from the intrahepatic branches of the portal vein, and may extend to the splenic vein and/or superior mesenteric vein. It is most often associated with liver cirrhosis. PVT not associated with cirrhosis is rare. The aim of this article is to report two cases of PVT in which it was not associated with cirrhosis. Both were treated with anticoagulation and clinical progress afterwards was good.

OBJECTIVES@#Heparin is mainly used as an anticoagulant in clinic, and it also has a certain anti-inflammatory effect. At present, after portal vein islet transplantation in diabetic patients, heparin is mainly infused through the peripheral veins of the limbs to achieve the purpose of anticoagulation and protection of the graft, rather than through the portal vein. In this study, animal experiments were conducted to investigate the effect of heparin infusion via the portal vein and marginal ear vein on the instant blood-mediated inflammatory reaction (IBMIR) after portal vein islet transplantation, which is the choice of anticoagulation methods for clinical islet transplantation to provide a basis for decision-making.@*METHODS@#A total of 50 neonatal pigs (Xeno-1 type, 3-5 days) were selected. Islets were isolated and purified from the pancreas of neonatal pigs. Ten non-diabetic Landrace pigs (1.5-2.0 months) served as recipients, and 12 000 IEQ/kg neonatal porcine islets were transplanted into the liver through the portal vein. All recipients received bolus injection of 50 U/kg of heparin 10 minutes before transplantation. After the bolus injection of heparin, the experimental group received heparin via the portal vein [10 U/(kg·h), 5 recipients], and the control group received heparin via the marginal ear vein [10 U/(kg·h), 5 recipients]. The superior vena cava blood was collected from the 2 groups pre-operation at 1, 3, 24 h post-operation of the transplantation. The portal vein blood was collected from the experimental group at 1 and 3 h after the transplantation as well. The levels of complement C3a, C5a, thrombin-antithrombin complex (TAT), β-thromboglobulin (β-TG), and D-dimer as well as activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) in superior vena cava blood from 1 and 3 h post-transplantation were detected in the 2 groups, and the levels of anti-Xa and anti-IIa in the portal vein and superior vena cava blood from 1 and 3 h post-transplantation in the experimental group were detected. Twenty four hours after the transplantation, the liver tissues in the 2 groups were collected for pathological examination to observe the inflammatory cell infiltration and peripheral thrombosis around the islets graft in liver.@*RESULTS@#Before transplantation, there was no statistically significant difference in C3a, C5a, TAT, β-TG, D-dimer levels and APTT between the 2 groups (all P>0.05). At 1 and 3 h after transplantation, the C3a, TAT, and D-dimer levels in the experimental group were significant decreased than those in the control groups (all P<0.05), and at 3 h after transplantation the C5a was significant decreased than that in the control group (P<0.05). At 1 and 3 h after transplantation, the anti-Xa and anti-IIa levels in the portal vein blood were significantly increased than those in the superior vena cava blood in the experimental group (all P<0.05). Pathological results showed the presence of islet cell clusters in the liver blood vessels. The thrombus formation and neutrophil infiltration around islet graft was not obvious in the experimental group, while massive thrombus formation and neutrophil infiltration in the control group.@*CONCLUSIONS@#Compared with marginal ear vein infusion of heparin, the direct infusion of heparin in the portal vein has a certain inhibitory effect on complement system, coagulation system activation and inflammatory cell infiltration in portal vein islet transplantation, which may attenuate the occurrence of IBMIR.

The liver is abundant in blood supply and receives 25% of the cardiac output via the hepatic artery and portal vein. Circulatory disorders may cause hepatic injury, resulting in congestive hepatopathy(CH) and ischemic hepatitis(IH). Hepatic congestion arising from increased hepatic venous pressure and decreased cardiac output is the common pathophysiological basis of both CH and IH. In addition, extensive arteriovenous shunts affect portal pressure and cardiac function, leading to alterations of hepatic blood supply. The current review summarizes the pathophysiology, clinical manifestations and therapeutic interventions of the above diseases, in order to provide reference for clinical practice.

Liver involvement is often observed in hematological disorders, resulting in liver abnormality, including unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia, monoclonal hyperglobulinemia, portal vein, or hepatic vein thrombosis or portal hypertension, hepatosplenomegaly, or iron accumulation in the liver. Here we summarize the major hematological diseases that often affect the liver: hemolytic anemia, defect in coagulation or anti-coagulation factors, myeloproliferative neoplasm, hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis, multiple myeloma, leukemia, and lymphoma. We hope this review will help clinicians diagnose and manage the patients with liver involvement by hematological disorders.

Liver have complex functions with a high workload. Various liver diseases are the result of the interaction of diverse genetic and environmental factors. Moreover, other systemic diseases may also affect liver, producing corresponding manifestations, such as abnormal liver function tests, portal vein or hepatic vein thrombosis, portal hypertension, hepatosplenomegaly and liver space-occupying lesions. Therefore, it is extremely important for hepatologists to have an in-depth understanding of other systemic diseases of hepatic manifestations, especially hematologic, connective tissue, endocrine, and circulatory, in order to improve the level of clinical diagnosis and treatment.

Clinical practice using associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy(ALPPS) or its modified procedures in treatment of primary hepatocellular carcinoma(HCC) with insufficient future liver remnant(FLR) in the past 10 years has failed to meet our expectations both in achieving decreased perioperative complications and mortality.The efficacy of ALPPS in improving long-term survival outcome of HCC still remains poor.Due to the trauma of two surgery within a short period,and patients with inadequate FLR are all diagnosed at advanced disease stages,ALPPS can only achieve surgical rather than biological tumor-curability.Previous studies have demonstrated comparable 5-year survival rates between early and advanced stages of HCC who underwent regional treatments.Therefore,tumor biological conversion is the key strategy prior to liver remnant volume conversion in improving treatment outcomes for HCC patients with insufficient FLR.Target therapy,immunotherapy together with locally treatment were expected to improve the conversion efficacy.Looking back at the development of ALPPS for the last decade,the rapid proliferation of FLR should be passed on,while the technology costs high risks and result in poor long-term outcome must be cautiously selected.

RESUMEN Fundamento: los aneurismas de la vena porta son entidades poco frecuentes, representan aproximadamente el 3% de los aneurismas del sistema venoso. La mayoría de los aneurismas de la vena porta se detectan en pacientes con hígado sano, aunque en algunas ocasiones la hipertensión portal podría favorecer el desarrollo de la patología. Los lugares más comunes son la confluencia venosa esplenomesentérica, la vena porta principal y las ramas de la vena porta intrahepática en los sitios de bifurcación. Objetivo: presentar el caso de un paciente portador de una aneurisma de la vena porta. Presentación del Caso: Paciente femenina, blanca de 49 años de edad con antecedentes de trastornos dispépticos, y en ocasiones, dolor a nivel del hipocondrio derecho. Su examen físico era negativo y la impresión diagnóstica de su médico de asistencia era litiasis vesicular. Durante la realización del examen ultrasonográfico se encuentra como dato positivo una dilatación de tipo aneurismático de la vena porta en el inicio de su trayecto intrahepático de 18 mm de diámetro, y el resto del examen resultó negativo. Conclusiones: Por lo inusual de este caso se decide hacer su presentación.

ABSTRACT: portal vein aneurysms are uncommon, representing approximately the 3% of venous system aneurysms. Most portal vein aneurysms are detected in patients with healthy liver, although on some occasions portal hypertension could favor their development. The most common sites are the splenomesenteric venous confluence, the main portal vein and the branches of the intrahepatic portal vein at bifurcation sites. Objective: to present the case of a patient with a portal vein aneurysm. Case Presentation: A 49-years-old white female patient with a history of dyspeptic disorders, and sometimes pain in the right upper quadrant. Her physical examination was negative and the diagnostic impression from her attending physician was gallstones. During the ultrasound examination, an aneurysmal dilatation of the portal vein at the beginning of its intrahepatic path of 18 mm in diameter was found as a positive finding, being the rest of the examination negative Conclusions: Due to the unusual nature of this case, it was decided to present it.

La vena porta es un conducto que drena el flujo esplácnico al hígado y se puede ocluir por diferentes patologías, variando su presentación clínica de acuerdo con la causa de la obstrucción. Es muy importante diferenciar la trombosis portal asociada o no a la cirrosis, ya que su tratamiento y pronóstico es diferente. La trombosis venosa portal extrahepática es una condición netamente de origen vascular, y es la principal causa de trombosis portal en niños y adultos. Presentamos tres casos tratados con derivación meso-Rex, con seguimiento a 6 meses

The portal vein is a conduit that drains splanchnic flow to the liver, it can be occluded by different pathologies and its clinical presentation varies according to the cause of the obstruction. It is very important to differentiate portal thrombosis associated or not with cirrhosis, since its treatment and prognosis is different. Extrahepatic portal vein thrombosis (PEVT) is a condition of purely vascular origin, being the main cause of portal thrombosis in children and adults. We present three cases with meso-Rex shunt, with a 6-month follow-up

Non-tumoral portal vein thrombosis (PVT) is associated with higher morbidity and mortality in liver transplantation (LT). In this study, we aimed to evaluate the impact of PVT in LT outcomes and analyze the types of surgical techniques used for dealing with PVT during LT. A systematic review was conducted in Cochrane, MEDLINE, and EMBASE databases, selecting articles from January 1990 to December 2019. The MESH-terms used were ("Portal Vein"[Mesh] AND "Thrombosis"[Mesh] NOT "Neoplasms"[Mesh]) AND ("Liver Transplantation"[Mesh]). The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis (PRISMA) recommendation was used, and meta-analysis was performed with Review Manager Version 5.3 software. A total of 1,638 articles were initially found: 488 in PubMed, 289 in Cochrane Library, and 861 in EMBASE, from which 27 were eventually selected for the meta-analysis. Surgery time of LT in patients with PVT was longer than in patients without LT (p<0.0001). Intraoperative red blood cell (p<0.00001), fresh frozen plasma (p=0.01), and platelets (p=0.03) transfusions during LT were higher in patients with PVT. One-year (odds ratio [OR] 1.17; p=0.002) and 5-year (OR 1.12; p=0.01) patient survival after LT was worse in the PVT group. Total occlusive PVT presented higher mortality (OR 3.70; p=0.00009) and rethrombosis rates (OR 3.47 [1.18-10.21]; p=0.02). PVT Yerdel III/IV classification exhibited worse 1-year [2.04 (1.21-3.42); p=0.007] and 5-year [0.98 (0.59-1.62); p=0.93] patient survival. Thrombectomy with primary anastomosis was associated with better outcomes. LT in patients with non-tumoral PVT demands more surgical time, needs more intraoperative transfusion, and presents worse 1- and 5-year patient survival. Total occlusive PVT and Yerdel III/IV PVT classification were associated with higher mortality. (PROSPERO, registration number: CRD42020132915).

La trombosis de la vena porta (TVP) se define como una oclusión parcial o completa de la luz de la vena porta o sus afluentes por la formación de trombos. La etiología de la formación de TVP en un hígado cirrótico parece ser multifactorial, y presenta una prevalencia de 1,3% a 9,8%. La fisiopatología de la TVP en pacientes con cirrosis aún no se comprende completamente, pero se sabe que existe una disminución de la síntesis tanto de factores procoagulantes como de anticoagulantes, que asociados a factores de riesgo locales o sistémicos, favorecen el predominio de los procoagulantes que causan la trombosis. Establecer el momento de la instauración de la trombosis y el nivel anatómico dentro del sistema venoso espleno-mesentérico, son aspectos fundamentales para estimar el pronóstico y ayudar a la toma de decisiones terapéuticas. A pesar de que hasta la fecha no se ha publicado un consenso sobre su profilaxis o tratamiento en la cirrosis hepática, y existen muchas controversias con respecto al manejo óptimo de la TVP, se han observado beneficios generales de la anticoagulación con heparina de bajo peso molecular en pacientes con cirrosis hepática, en particular en aquellos con TVP aguda. El objetivo de esta revisión es explorar los temas más relevantes al momento de abordar un paciente con cirrosis hepática y TVP.

Portal vein thrombosis (PVT) is defined as a partial or complete occlusion of the lumen of the portal vein or its tributaries due to the formation of thrombi. The etiology of DVT formation in a cirrhotic liver appears to be multifactorial, with a prevalence of 1.3% to 9.8%. The pathophysiology of PVT in patients with cirrhosis is not yet fully understood, but it is known that there is a decrease in the synthesis of both procoagulant and anticoagulant factors, which associated with local or systemic risk factors, favor the predominance of procoagulants that cause thrombosis. Establishing the onset of thrombosis and the anatomical level within the splanchnic mesenteric venous system are fundamental aspects to estimate the prognosis and aid in therapeutic decision-making. Despite the fact that to date no consensus has been published on its prophylaxis or treatment in liver cirrhosis, and the many controversies regarding the optimal management of PVT, general benefits of anticoagulation with low molecular weight heparin have been observed in patients with liver cirrhosis, particularly those with acute PVT. The objective of this review is to explore the most relevant issues when approaching a patient with liver cirrhosis and PVT.

Las malformaciones del sistema venoso abdominal son alteraciones vasculares raras. La incidencia de esta afección se estima en uno de cada 30,000 nacimientos y se asocian con malformaciones gas- trointestinal, genitourinaria, ósea y cardiovascular. En el 2018 se ha registrado en la literatura mundial 39 casos de Abernethy tipo I y 22 casos de Abernethy tipo II. CASO CLÍNICO paciente femenino de 12 años con antecedente de hipertensión portal tratada hace 2 años, con historia de malestar general e ic- tericia, acudió a centro privado para realizarse estudios complementarios. Un ultrasonido Doppler por- tal evidenció una lesión isoecogénica al parénquima hepático en el aspecto inferior del lóbulo derecho. Se continuó la evaluación realizando una tomografía en la cual se observó: configuración anómala del sistema venoso portal; la vena esplénica y mesentérica superior se encuentran dilatadas, además se evidenció confluencia portoesplénica elongada, en la cual derivan dos trayectos portales, uno de ellos drenando la lobulación hepática antes descrita y la segundo se comunica con el sistema venoso portal hepático derecho, demostrando tortuosidad de su trayecto, con estenosis de su porción proximal. Los hallazgos antes descritos sugieren malformación vascular del sistema venoso portal-esplácnico, que causa derivación porto-sistémica en relación a malformación de Abernethy tipo II. En conclusión se recomienda el diagnóstico precoz. El examen preferente es el ecodoppler con posterior confirmación mediante angiotac abdominal. El tratamiento es sumamente importante pues su retraso puede devenir en lesiones irreparables hasta la insuficiencia hepática y muerte...(AU)

Resumen La hipertensión portal se define como la alteración patológica en el gradiente de presión a nivel del sistema portal, es decir, la diferencia entre la presión de la vena porta y la vena cava inferior. El valor normal es entre 1-5 mm Hg y se considera hipertensión cuando es mayor de 10 mm Hg. En este artículo, se describe el caso de una paciente de 5 años con un cuadro de hipertensión portal secundario a várices esofágicas y trombosis de la vena porta, confirmado por endoscopia de vías digestivas alta y angioresonancia magnética. La paciente fue atendida en la Fundación Clínica Infantil Club Noel de la ciudad de Cali, Colombia, entre los meses de diciembre del 2018 y febrero del 2019.

Abstract Portal hypertension is defined as the pathological increase in the portal pressure gradient, which is the difference between the pressure of the portal vein and the inferior vena cava. Normally portal vein pressure ranges between 1-5 mmHg and is considered hypertension when it is higher than 10 mmHg. In this study the case of a 5-year-old patient that suffers from secondary portal hypertension to portal venous thrombosis and esophageal varices is presented. The diagnostic is confirmed by an endoscopy of the upper gastrointestinal tract and by a magnetic angioresonance. The patient was treated at the Fundacion Clinica Infantil Club Noel located in Cali, Colombia, between the months of December 2018 and February 2019.

Resumen: La ligadura de una rama de la vena porta constituye un procedimiento con buenos resultados para evitar la falla hepática posoperatoria en caso de hepatectomías extremas al provocar la hipertrofia del hígado contralateral. Sin embargo, la repermeabilización de ésta ha sido demostrada por la presencia de anastomosis porto portales intrahepáticas, pudiendo determinar una disminución de la hipertrofia esperada o necesaria. Como objetivo documentamos un caso clínico de repermeabilización intrahepática de la vena porta, evento no deseado de la hepatectomía en dos tiempos para el tratamiento de metástasis hepáticas bilobares de origen colorrectal y describimos alternativas para evitar o tratar dicha repermeabilización.

Summary: Left or right portal vein ligation to prevent post-operative liver failure in the case of extreme hepatectomy constitutes a procedure with a good prognosis, as it causes contralateral liver hypertrophy. However, its revascularization has been proved by intrahepatic porto-portal anastomoses, which could result in a reduction of the expected or required hypertrophy. The study aims to record a clinical case of intrahepatic revascularization of the portal vein, an unwanted event of the two-stage hepatectomy to treat bilobar hepatic metastasis of colorectal origin, and describe alternatives to avoid or treat such revascularization.

Resumo: A ligadura de um ramo da veia porta é um procedimento com bons resultados para evitar a insuficiência hepática pós-operatória em hepatectomias extremas por causar hipertrofia do fígado contralateral. No entanto, sua repermeabilização tem sido demonstrada pela presença de anastomose porto-portal intra-hepática, que pode determinar diminuição da hipertrofia esperada ou necessária. Como objetivo, documentamos um caso clínico de repermeabilização da veia porta intra-hepática, um evento indesejado de hepatectomia em dois estágios para o tratamento de metástases hepáticas bilobares de origem colorretal, e descrevemos alternativas para evitar ou tratar essa repermeabilização.

Fundamento: La cavernomatosis portal es una enfermedad poco frecuente causada por la trombosis de la vena porta, que provoca hipertensión portal (HP). Se ha relacionado con la realización de cateterismo umbilical, traumatismos abdominales e infecciones del período neonatal. La presentación clínica más frecuente es la hemorragia digestiva alta, con o sin melena, esplenomegalia, red venosa colateral y en etapas tardías puede observarse pancitopenia. Los métodos diagnósticos son ecografía abdominal, endoscopía digestiva y la angiotomografía. El diagnóstico definitivo es anatomopatológico. La literatura internacional y nacional es escasa para esta enfermedad, predominando el reporte de casos referidos a la edad pediátrica. Objetivo: presentar las características que definen esta enfermedad, en ocasión de darle seguimiento terapéutico a un paciente. Presentación de caso: se presenta un paciente de 20 años de edad, cuyo diagnóstico fue eventual por hallazgo ultrasonográfico en el periodo neonatal, con retraso madurativo y malnutrición proteico-energética. Conclusiones: la cavernomatosis portal o transformación cavernomatosa de la porta se define como la dilatación de las venas paracoledocianas y epicoledocianas generalmente secundaria a una trombosis portal, con una escasa prevalencia, fundamentalmente en edades pediátricas, que constituye la primera causa de hipertensión portal en este grupo etario. Provoca retardo del desarrollo pondoestatural, malnutrición proteicoenergética y sangramientos digestivos.

Background: Portal cavernomatosis is a rare disease caused by portal vein thrombosis, causing portal hypertension. It has been associated with performing umbilical catheterization, abdominal trauma and infections in the neonatal period. The most frequent clinical presentation is bleeding upper digestive, with or without melena, splenomegaly, collateral venous network and pancytopenia can be observed in late stages. Diagnostic methods are abdominal ultrasound, digestive endoscopy, and angiotomography. The definitive diagnosis is pathological. The international and national literature is scarce for this disease, with the predominant reporting of cases referring to pediatric age. Objective: to present the characteristics that define this disease, on the occasion of giving therapeutic follow-up to a patient. Case presentation: a 20-year-old patient is presented, whose diagnosis was eventual by ultrasound finding in the neonatal period, with maturational delay and protein-energy malnutrition. Conclusions: portal cavernomatosis or cavernomatous transformation of the Porta is defined as the dilation of the paracholedocian and epicoledocian veins generally secondary to portal thrombosis, with a low prevalence, mainly at pediatric ages, which is the leading cause of portal hypertension in this group. etareo. It causes delayed development of the body, protein-energy malnutrition and digestive bleeding.

Abstract Objectives: This study aimed to evaluate factors associated with upper digestive hemorrhage and primary and secondary endoscopic prophylaxis outcomes in children with extrahepatic portal vein obstruction. Methods: This observational and prospective study included 72 children with extrahepatic portal vein obstruction who were followed from 2005 to 2017. Risk factors associated with upper digestive hemorrhage and the results of primary and secondary prophylaxis of these patients were evaluated. Results: Fifty patients (69.4%) had one or more episodes of bleeding during follow-up, with a median age at first hemorrhage of 4.81 years. The multivariate analysis showed that medium- to large-caliber esophageal varices were associated with an 18-fold risk of upper digestive hemorrhage (95% CI: 4.33-74.76; p < 0.0001). Primary prophylaxis was administered to 14 patients, with eradication in 85.7%; however, 14.3% of these patients had hemorrhages during the follow-up period and 41.7% had a relapse of varices. Secondary prophylaxis was administered to 41 patients. Esophageal varices were eradicated in 90.2% of patients. There were relapse and re-bleeding of esophageal varices in 45.9% and 34.1% of the children, respectively. Conclusion: Primary and secondary endoscopic prophylaxes showed high rates of esophageal varix eradication, but with significant relapses. Eradication of esophageal varices cannot definitively prevent recurrent upper digestive hemorrhage, since bleeding from alternate sites can occur. Medium- and large-caliber esophageal varices were associated with upper digestive hemorrhage in patients with extrahepatic portal vein obstruction. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this study is the first to evaluate bleeding risk factors in children with extrahepatic portal vein obstruction.

Resumo Objetivos: Este estudo visou avaliar fatores associados à hemorragia digestiva alta e resultados da profilaxia endoscópica primária e secundária em crianças com obstrução extra-hepática da veia porta. Métodos: Este estudo observacional e prospectivo incluiu 72 crianças com obstrução extra-hepática da veia porta acompanhadas de 2005 a 2017. Os fatores de risco associados à hemorragia digestiva alta e os resultados da profilaxia primária e secundária desses pacientes foram avaliados. Resultados: Dos pacientes, 50 (69,4%) apresentaram ≥ 1 episódio de sangramento durante o acompanhamento, com idade média da primeira hemorragia de 4,81 anos. A análise multivariada mostrou que varizes esofágicas de médio a grande calibre estavam associadas a um risco 18 vezes maior de hemorragia digestiva alta (IC de 95% 4,33-74,76; p < 0,0001). Foi administrada profilaxia primária em 14 pacientes, com erradicação em 85,7%; contudo, 14,3% desses pacientes apresentaram hemorragias durante o período de acompanhamento e 41,7% apresentaram recidiva de varizes. Foi administrada profilaxia secundária em 41 pacientes. As varizes esofágicas foram erradicadas em 90,2% dos pacientes. Houve recidiva e novos sangramentos de varizes esofágicas em 45,9% e 34,1% das crianças, respectivamente. Conclusão: As profilaxias esofágicas primárias e secundárias apresentaram altas taxas de erradicação de varizes esofágicas, porém com recidivas significativas. A erradicação de varizes esofágicas não pode prevenir de forma definitiva a hemorragia digestiva alta recorrente, pois pode ocorrer sangramento de outros locais. Varizes esofágicas de médio e grande calibre estavam associadas à hemorragia digestiva alta em pacientes com obstrução extra-hepática da veia porta. No melhor de nosso conhecimento, nosso estudo é o primeiro a avaliar os fatores de risco de sangramento em crianças com obstrução extra-hepática da veia porta.

Resumen Una de las consecuencias más graves de la trombosis de la vena porta extrahepática es la hipertensión portal con sangrado variceal recurrente. Una vez falla la ligadura endoscópica de las várices y el eje esplenoportal no se encuentra permeable, la devascularización tipo Sugiura modificado puede ser la única alternativa. Se ha documentado su uso en pacientes con cirrosis, pero hay poca información en personas no cirróticas. En este artículo se describe una serie de 4 casos de pacientes no cirróticos, en los cuales se realizó dicho procedimiento. Los pacientes fueron seguidos durante 12 meses y ninguno presentó episodios de resangrado de las várices esofágicas, ni tampoco se requirió la ligadura de las várices residuales. Esta cirugía se perfila como una alternativa terapéutica para este tipo de pacientes.

Abstract One of the most serious consequences of extrahepatic portal vein thrombosis is portal hypertension with recurrent variceal bleeding. Once endoscopic variceal ligation fails and the spleno-portal axis is not permeable, modified Sugiura devascularization may be the only alternative. Its use in patients with cirrhosis has been reported, but there is little information on non-cirrhotic patients. This article presents a series of four cases of non-cirrhotic patients that underwent this procedure. Patients were followed for twelve months; none presented episodes of esophageal varices re-bleeding nor required ligation of residual varices. This surgery is outlined as a therapeutic alternative for this type of patients.

This study aims at understanding the vascularization of the human liver to determine the correct way to divide it into "divisions" (sectors) and segments, for which we dissected 250 livers using the acrylic resin injection method. The results showed the role of the "Porta hepatis" in the hepatic vascular distribution, the existence of seven vascular pedicles for seven portal segments, and the role of portal fissures in the parenchymal division of the liver. Our research provides the definition of a portal segment and demonstrates the role of the hepatic portal vein in originating any liver parenchymal division.

Quisimos estudiar la vascularización del hígado humano para determinar la forma correcta de dividirlo en "divisiones" y segmentos, para lo cual disecamos 250 hígados usando técnicas de inyección acrílica. Los resultados mostraron la función de la Porta hepatis en la distribución vascular del hígado, la existencia de siete pedículos vasculares para siete segmentos portales, y el rol de las fisuras portales en la división parenquimal del hígado. Ofrecemos la definición de lo que es un segmento portal y demostramos el rol de la vena porta hepática en originar cualquier división parenquimal del hígado.
