Left-sided portal hypertension: Computed tomography imaging findings and clinical appearance.
Sinistral portal hypertension (SPH) or left-sided portal hypertension occurs as a result of isolated obstruction of the splenic vein. In the majority of the cases, it is a complication of a pancreatic pathology. In contrast to generalized portal hypertension, in patients with SPH, liver function tests and portal vein pressure are within normal limits. Expected flow direction in portal vein is hepatopetal. Splenic vein impediment prompts splenic venous clog, which can cause splenomegaly and splenoportal security vessels create to deplete blood past the blocked splenic vein. Inferable from anatomic variations of venous life systems, to fundamental causative pathology and to site and term of the illness, the noticed insurance course differs among patients with splenic vein impediment.Author(s): Jenna Merenstein
