[Portal hypertension with hepatic-portal fistula on a cirrhotic liver].Ann Chir. 1996; 50(3):276-8.AC
We report a case of hepatico-portal fistula following liver needle biopsy in a cirrhotic patient with repeated gastrointestinal bleeding related to esophageal varices. Angiographic embolization of the fistula was carried out because of its possible role in portal hypertension, and the potential risks of primary porta-caval shunt. Because of the failure of the embolization, we performed porta-caval shunt with no complications, apart from the hepaticoportal fistula.
