Lieno-adrenal shunt.
Trop Gastroenterol. 2006 Jul-Sep; 27(3):136-7.TG

Abstract

Portal hypertension with variceal bleed and a well functioning liver is an indication for shunt surgery. The commonly performed procedure is the lieno-renal shunt. When the left adrenal vein is long enough, and of healthy diameter a spleno-adrenal shunt is possible. Most of the reported cases are of distal spleno-adrenal type. A case of proximal spleno-adrenal patent shunt with a follow-up two years is presented along with review of literature.
