Abstract

The intrahepatic portal venous flow in cirrhosis of the liver was evaluated by percutaneous transhepatic portography and hepatic arteriography. Spontaneous reversal of flow in segmental portal vein branches was documented. Changes in hepatic arterial inflow and portal venous pressure may result in intermittent changes in the direction of flow in segmental portal venous branches within the cirrhotic liver. Segmental reversal of blood flow seems to be the precursor of total hepatofugal portal flow.
