Chao Wang, Liang Xiao, Juan Han, Chang-e Jin, Yin Peng, Zhen Yang
Cirrhosis with portal hypertension is a common disease which has a significant impact on the quality of patients' life. Esophagogastric devascularization (EGDV) has been demonstrated to be an effective method to treat portal hypertension, however certain complications are associated with it. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and clinical outcome of the selective EGDV (sEGDV) for the treatment of portal hypertension. The study was conducted prospectively from Jan. 1 2011 to Dec. 31, 2012, and 180 patients were randomized to the sEGDV group (n=90) or the non-sEGDV (n-sEGDV) group (n=90)...

We examined whether this operation could be effective for alleviating secondary hypersplenism for a long post-operative period. The subjects were 42 cases with gastroesophageal varices following liver cirrhosis in which we had performed distal splenorenal shunts with splenopancreatic and gastric disconnection at our institution in the period from 1983 1994 and the post-operative survival periods had been over 3 years...
