In 1893 the Paris correspondent of The Lancet referred to a presentation by M. Pavlow, as follows: “If (sic), by means of a ligature placed on the portal vein (sic), the blood is compelled to deviate from the liver and pass directly into the general circulation, poisonous symptoms appear, consisting of fever and nephritis, with albuminuria. That this nephritis is not due to hypertension of the blood in the renal vessels is proved by the fact that no such kidney trouble is caused by ligature of the inferior vena cava although this manoeuvre is productive of a greater tension in the renal vessels than the operation inquestion.
