Surgical outcomes of distal splenorenal shunt or liver transplantation in treatment of schistosomal refractory variceal bleeding. Wael Mohialddin Ahmed Doush1. the distal splenorenal shunt (dsrs) is a surgical procedure during which the vein from the spleen (called the splenic vein) is detached from the portal vein and. the distal splenorenal shunt (dsrs) procedure provides good long-term control of bleeding in many people with portal hypertension. dsrs controls bleeding in.

The splenic vein was divided between two vascular clamps after a silk ligature was placed near the confluence with superior mesenteric vein and large clip behind the ligature to reduce slpenorenal formation within the portal vein with oversewing the portal end stump of the splenic vein using running prolene [ Figures 12 and 13 ]. However, because most surgeons find Linton’s shunt procedure technically difficult, we felt that a simpler technique was needed.

Then the splenic vein is dissected initially along its inferior and posterior edge cleared from peritoneum in pancreatic bed and continued medially toward its confluence with superior mesenteric vein until sufficient length was available for coming down to anastomose with left renal vein without kinking [Figure 9].

Given the early occlusion rate and need for constant surveillance, transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunting should shung reserved for patients with Child C classification cirrhosis with chronic hemorrhage or intractable ascites or as an emergency procedure for patients with uncontrollable bleeding using endoscopic therapy.

Half of the patients Group I underwent Linton’s conventional technique of splenorenal shunt; the other half Group II underwent a newly devised, simplified shunt technique.

Variceal Bleeding Study Group. The human body contains several fusion fasciae, such as the fusion fascia of Treitz at the head of the pancreas and the fusion fascia of Toldt along the body and tail of the pancreas 11 Figs.

The medial stump of the splenic vein oversewed by running prolene. Recurrent variceal bleeding and hepatic encephalopathy occurred in 5 6. Group I consisted of 6 male and 4 female patients with a mean age of Gastroenterol Clin Biol ; In the present review, we will discuss hepatosplenic schistosomiasis and oesophagogastric varices pathophysiology and review the current surgical outcomes of distal splenorenal shunt or liver transplantation in schistosomal refractory variceal bleeding.
