Abstract

We report a case of extensive acute thrombosis of portal vein and cava in a portocaval hemitransposition liver graft that was treated successfully with percutaneous pulse spray thrombolysis through a femoral vein access. The patient subsequently developed descending and sigmoid colon ischemic necrosis because of the venous thrombosis necessitating emergency colon resection. The patient had prolonged postoperative intensive care stay, but was eventually discharged in a good condition with normal liver function. Three month follow up demonstrated persistent normalization of hepatic function and normal duplex ultrasound.
