Key points about portal hypertension. Portal hypertension is high blood pressure of the portal vein. The portal vein is located in your belly.

It collects nutrient-rich blood from your intestines and carries it to the liver. Cirrhosis, or scarring of the liver, is one of the most common causes of this health problem.

Portal hypertension refers to a pathological elevation of portal venous pressure resulting from obstructions in portal blood flow, which may be either prehepatic (e.g., portal vein thrombosis), hepatic (e.g., liver cirrhosis), or posthepatic (e.g., right-sided heart failure).The subsequent backflow of blood may lead to portosystemic anastomoses, splenomegaly, and/or ascites.

The chapter on portal hypertension includes the definition and pathophysiology of this condition. It presents the currently accepted classification of varices, the associated clinical features, and subsequently discusses the medical, endoscopic, and surgical management of portal hypertension.

Prediction tools are also discussed as well as the management of acute variceal bleeding. Portal hypertension is maintained in the splanchnic and portal venous system, and the shunt maintains portal flow to the liver.
