Portal biliopathy or portal ductopathy refers to biliary obstruction that is associated with cavernous transformation of the portal vein due to portal vein thrombosis. OBJECTIVE. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the MRI features of portal biliopathy. CONCLUSION. MR cholangiography coupled with dynamic 3D. ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVE.

These are unusual presentations for cases of portal hypertension. Biliary ductal wall thickening indicates hypointensity on fat-saturated T1-weighted imaging C and enhancement on fat-saturated imaging B, D thick arrows.

Bhatia et al[ 57 ], Bile proteomics for differentiation of malignant from benign biliary strictures: Gupta V, Chandra A. Causes of EHPVO include clotting and myeloproliferative disorders, neonatal umbilical vein catheterization, abdominal post-operative complications, dehydration, intra-abdominal inflammatory diseases, and direct invasion or extrinsic compression by porgal.

This is related to persistence of portosystemic collaterals and does not necessarily imply ischemia as a cause of bile duct changes.

In addition, hepatic parenchyma can be well seen on ultrasound with associated portosystemic collaterals and splenomegaly. C, C Grade D Fair: Pseudosclerosing cholangitis in extrahepatic portal venous obstruction.

He had jaundice however, and no anaemia. Primary laparoscopic cholecystectomy in patients with portal cavernoma and non-obstructive portal biliopathy: Treatment with one-stage portal-systemic shunt and biliary bypass. Perlemuter et al[ 20 ], Ital J Gastroenterol Hepatol. Development of varices in the gallbladder wall as a collateral pathway via the cystic vein is also a characteristic feature of PB [ 2 ] Figures 1 and 2.

The portal vein, following thrombosis may be atretic or re-canalized. Inwe were confronted with biliary disease in two patients of portal cavernoma[ bilio;athy ].

Cholangiographic abnormalities were detected in 17 PSS was performed in patients, PSS with splenectomy in 7, splenectomy with devascularisation in 18, devascularisation in 1 and 16 patients underwent biliary surgery biliodigestive anastomosis, cholecystectomy, oprtal. As these changes are progressive in nature, it is worthwhile to have serial assessment of type, extent and severity of these changes on a boliopathy term follow up. Khuroo et al[ 3 ].

Portal biliopathy is a progressive disease and patients who have long standing disease and more severe bile duct abnormalities present with recurrent episodes of biliary pain, cholangitis and cholestasis. Am J Roentegenol ; Among the total of symptomatic PB patients included in case series and case reports, patients were treat endoscopically at first.

Her developmental history was also reported to be normal until the age of seven, when she started to show growth retardation.

The spectrum of biliary abnormalities shown at magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography MRCP includes intra- and extra-hepatic biliary stenosis single or multiplewith or without consensual above dilation; bile duct wall irregularity or thickening; bile duct angulation, varicose veins located at the ductular walls and gallbladder[ 38 ].

Portal biliopathy treated by liver transplantation. Misdiagnosis can be avoided by using appropriate imaging modalities to prevent complications. Therapy of portal biliopathy should be addressed to firstly reduce portal hypertension and secondly to resolve biliary obstruction.

In some patients, linear areas of calcification within the previously thrombosed portal vein may be seen, indicating chronic venous thrombosis. The role of UDCA administration associated with endoscopic procedures is still uncertain: Portal biliopathy, magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography findings: In patients without a suitable patent vein, splenectomy associated with esophagogastric devascularisation could reduce pressure in pericholedochal collateral veins and improve biliary symptoms[ 52 ].

Endoscopic management of biliary obstruction caused by cavernous transformation of the portal vein. There is considerable variation in clinical presentation of biliary obstruction.

After initial assessment and management, endoscopy was done and band ligation was performed.
