Key Words Recurrent hepatic encephalopathy; Liver cirrhosis; Port systemic shunt; Shunt embolization; Portal vein thrombosis
Core Tip Portosystemic shunts are a cause of hepatic encephalopathy and decreased survival of cirrhotic patients. The embolization of these shunts has been performed to control hepatic encephalopathy manifestations, but the presence of portal vein thrombosis is considered a contraindication. We presented a cirrhotic patient with persistent hepatic encephalopathy and hepatic coma. She had a wide splenorenal shunt and also portal vein thrombosis. As she had other shunts, we performed the embolization of the largest shunt and she achieved a good recovery. In conclusion, for patients with many shunts and severe hepatic encephalopathy, one of these shunts can be successfully embolized.
