Pol Merkur Lekarski. 2008 Aug; 25(146):150-2.PM

Abstract

Thrombophilia in adults is one of main causes of portal vein thrombosis. Esophageal and gastric varices, ascites and hypersplenism are well known complications of portal hypertension. There are controversial issues on the management, especially anticoagulant therapy and surgical treatment of these patients. We present a 42-years old woman with a history of three acute coronary episodes suffering from recurrent variceal bleeding due to portal and splenic vein thrombosis in the course of myeloproliferative disorder and protein C deficiency. It was 10 months delay of diagnosis. She was successfully treated with medical and surgical treatment (esophageal stapler transection, cardial devascularization, and splenectomy). In the paper we discuss complexity of diagnosis and surgical treatment.
