[Mesenteric venous thrombosis as a complication of surgery for portal hypertension by the Romero-Torres technic. Apropos a case].Rev Esp Enferm Dig. 1991 Apr; 79(4):285-7.RE
A case is presented of mesenteric venous thrombosis which affects about 30 cm of small intestine in a patient operated one month before for portal hypertension and bleeding from esophagogastric varices, in which an interruption of the portal-azygous venous circulation was made with splenectomy, using the Romero-Torres procedure. We consider that postsplenectomy thrombocytosis has been the first pathogenic factor in the mesenteric venous thrombosis.
