  • Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt prior to renal transplantation in a child with autosomal-recessive polycystic kidney disease and portal hypertension: A case report PEDIATRIC TRANSPLANTATION Benador, N., Grimm, P., Lavine, J., Rosenthal, P., Reznik, V., Lemire, J. 2001; 5 (3): 210-214


    Autosomal-recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD) can cause renal failure and portal hypertension in children. Portal hypertension may complicate the course of renal transplantation (Tx). We report the successful outcome of a patient with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and portal hypertension treated with transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS), a minimally invasive endovascular technique of portosystemic shunt, prior to renal Tx.
