Abstract

In the past 10–15 years portacaval shunt surgery has found decreasing popularity in the treatment of acute and chronic bleeding of esophageal varices because injection sclerotherapy, transection procedures, and liver transplantation now offer convincing therapeutic alternatives (Häring and Karavias 1990; Siewert and Feussner 1990). This may explain why a very astonishing operative procedure of shunt surgery developed in China — the direct mesoeaval shunt — has not yet found wide acceptance. The Medline System does not contain Single publication about this special operative technique before 1975. We describe here our experiences with the direct mesoeaval shunt.
