The authors report the clinical case of a 59 year-old woman who was incidentally diagnosed as having arteriovenous pulmonary malformation (AVPM).

The surgical therapy offered to the patient had no complications. The essential aspects of pathofisiology, clinical manifestations and treatment of AVPM and ROWD are discussed...

PHG is often assosiated with portal hypertension patients and presence of esofageal and /or gastric varices. Mechanism of pathogenesis PHG is still not completely cleared up, but regulation of gastric nitric oxide level, postaglandins, tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and epidermal growth factor production could be important factors in development of portal hypertensive gastropathy...

We analize the definition, prevalence, etiology, pathofisiology, treatment and prevention since it is a reversible surgery complication but if it isn't early diagnosed and treated, its morbidity and mortality can be high...
