Clinical Presentation: Routine workup of a cirrhotic patients with atranshepatic
intrajugular portosytemic shunt(TIPS).
Comment: Following portal vein velocities by CDFI is useful forearly evaluation of
shunt function following TIPS.
Description: The US study shows the stigmata of cirrhosis. The TIPSis perfectly
visible linking the hepatic vein to the right portalvein. It appears as a hyperchoic tubular
structure or as ahyperdense tube on CT and AXR. The shunt is functional with mean
PVportal vein velocities of > 50 cm/sec ( normal values > 50+/- 21 cm/s). The
portosystemic gradient measured by angiographywas 9 mm Hg which is normal (not
