Core Tip Portal vein thrombosis (PVT) is considered to be a frequent complication of liver cirrhosis; however, very few data are available on the natural history and management of PVT in cirrhosis, despite its association with potentially life-threatening conditions. The understanding and information on the management of PVT in cirrhosis are incomplete. The aims of this review are to: (1) assemble data on the physiopathological mechanism, clinical findings, diagnosis and management of PVT in cirrhosis; (2) describe the principal factors most frequently involved in PVT development; and (3) summarize the recent knowledge concerning diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
