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.

After initial assessment and management, endoscopy was done and band ligation was performed. This asymptomatic phase of portal biliopathy may last for years and patients develop clinical biliary disease only if they survive to adulthood. Data on the natural course of biliopathy following portal vein thrombosis and portal cavernoma are scarce[ 181939 ]. Biliopatht history of portal cavernoma cholangiopathy. Biliary disease, Extrahepatic portal venous obstruction, Portal cavernoma, Bile duct strictures, Bile duct calculi.

The right and left hepatic arteries are connected with each other by communicating arcade. Only few cases reported earlier had such grave presentation.

Biiliopathy patients generally do not require treatment. Biliary ductal wall thickening indicates hypointensity on fat-saturated Biliopaghy imaging C and enhancement on fat-saturated imaging B, D thick arrows.

Poftal, ultrasound and CT abdomen were carried out which showed moderate intrahepatic biliary dilatation, gallstones, thrombosed portal and superior mesenteric veins, aneurysmal dilatation of the portal vein along with multiple dilated collateral seen at the porta hepatis, which were compressing the CBD at its mid level Figure National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. In conclusion, when PB is established due to the formation of PC in EHPVO, the clinical picture will not change much over time and clinical manifestations will be mainly correlate with site and type of stenosis.


Strictures can also form as a result of prolonged compression by dilated tortuous collaterals.

In contrast ultrasound and MRCP are non-invasive, give comparable images of biliary tract and have advantages to further visualize portal venous system. Among these, one patient initially treated with endoscopic stent placement, 2 patients initially treated with PTBD and 4 patients treated with biliodigestive anastomosis needed repeated transhepatic cholangioscopies to remove intrahepatic stones and to improve biliary drainage; except for 2 patients lost in follow-up, at long-term follow-up one patient died for severe cholangitis and haemobilia while other patients were asymptomatic.

Sharma M, Ponnusamy RP. Portal bilopathy may present as jaundicecholangitis due to bile duct obstruction, or rarely as haemobilia. Therapeutic strategies in symptomatic portal biliopathy.

Vascular biliopathy as a cause of common bile duct obstruction successfully treated by mesocaval shunt and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography biliary stent placement. Biliary abnormalities associated with extrahepatic portal veinous obstruction. The duration of follow-up, when reported, range between 2 d and 18 years.

Relief of biliary obstruction due to portal vein cavernoma using a transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt TIPS without the need for long-term stenting. Portal biliopathy treated with living-donor liver transplant: CBD stones 3 C: Her liver function test was performed which was within normal limits. Pseudosclerosing cholangitis in extrahepatic portal venous obstruction.

In particular, dilation of plexus of Saint causes fine irregularities in biliary walls while dilation of plexus of Petren causes extrinsic compression. Extrahepatic portal vein obstruction is often encountered in children in India. Edit article Share article View revision history.

Misdiagnosis can be avoided by using appropriate imaging modalities to prevent complications. Reversible component includes those changes which are likely to resolve following portal venous decompression [shunt surgery or transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt TIPS ]. The right and left hepatic ducts join in the hilum to form common hepatic duct, which continues as common bile duct from the point cystic duct joins it laterally.

Biliary abnormalities associated with bilikpathy biliopathy: Some patients may develop symptoms due to blocked portosystemic shunt.

Am J Roentegenol ; Common bile duct is 6. Liver transplantation is indicated in patients with secondary biliary cirrhosis and end stage liver disease[ 6667 ]. Support Center Support Center. Chattopadhyay et al[ 52 ], Treatment of PB is recommended only for symptomatic patients, whereas the presence of biliary abnormalities associated with mild biochemical alterations without clinical manifestations is not an indication for therapeutic intervention but requires a biochemical and clinical follow-up[ 11 ].

Features of chronic liver disease with splenomegaly were also noted.

The largest series of PB patients endoscopically treated is described by Biliopaghy et al[ 24 ], who published data about ERCP performed for biliary strictures in 20 symptomatic patients.
