Recurrent acute Budd-Chiari syndrome after right hepatectomy: US color-Doppler vascular pattern and left hepatic vein stenting for treatment
Abdominal Imaging , 07/16/2012
Domenico SD et al. – This clinical situation, due to left hepatic vein kinking, was suspected by US examination and confirmed by CT scan that showed a pathological intrahepatic vascular pattern. Patient required urgent relaparotomy and the liver was replaced in normal position. However, recurrence of outflow obstruction occurred and it was ultimately treated by inferior vena cava angiogram with left hepatic vein stenting.
