Early experience with the selective splenocaval shunt for variceal bleeding.
Surg Gynecol Obstet. 1988 Oct; 167(4):335-40.SG

Abstract

Selective variceal decompression is the operative method of choice in the definitive management of recurrent hemorrhage from gastroesophageal varices. The distal splenorenal shunt is the recommended procedure for selective variceal decompression, but its use may be limited in patients who have undergone left nephrectomy, in patients with an anatomically aberrant relationship between the splenic and left renal veins and in patients with preoperative visceral angiographic findings suggesting that they are at risk for development of the postoperative syndrome of renal vein hypertension. In these clinical situations, selective variceal decompression can be obtained with a splenocaval shunt, constructed by directly anastomosing the splenic vein to the infrarenal vena cava. Seven patients who have undergone the selective splenocaval shunt are reviewed in this report. Early experience with these patients demonstrates the use of the selective splenocaval shunt when an alternative to the distal splenorenal shunt is needed.
