Use of adrenal vein conduit for splenorenal shunts: a case report.Hepatogastroenterology. 1999 May-Jun; 46(27):2033-4.H
We report a case with extrahepatic portal venous obstruction (EHPVO), who presented with recurrent bleeding following a previous devascularization procedure and needed an emergency distal spleno-renal shunt (DSRS). Due to technical difficulty because of previous scarring, the adrenal vein was used as a conduit between the splenic vein and renal vein. The shunt's patent and the patient has been bleed-free for 2 years.
