Distal splenorenal shunts were made in 25 patients with cirrhosis of the liver and portal hypertension. Angiograms were obtained in 16 patients at 1 wk, 3 and 6 mth, and at 1 yr postoperatively. Portal vein flow had diminished in all patients compared with flow seen in preoperative angiograms. Hepatofugal flow developed in 6 patients during the followup period, and in 2 patients only 1 wk postoperatively. The shunt remained patent in all of the patients but one.
