Thrombotic Venous Diseases of the Liver.

Sabol TP, Molina M, Wu GY - J Clin Transl Hepatol (2015)

Bottom Line: Thrombotic venous diseases of the liver do not occur frequently, but when they do, they can present as difficult diagnostic and therapeutic challenges.The aim of this article is to review the epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and therapeutic options of these serious vascular problems.

Mentions: Contrast enhanced CT and MRI are superior imaging techniques to evaluate the portal system and mesenteric circulation, as they can be visualized in their entirety.20,21 Bland thrombus in a contrast enhanced exam is hypodense on CT (Fig. 2A–2C) and hypointense on MRI (Fig. 3). Once cavernous transformation is present, the main and often right and left portal veins are difficult to identify and are replaced by numerous enhancing collaterals in the porta hepatis (Fig. 2D).
