Abstract

The meso-Rex bypass procedure has been used to treat patients with portal hypertension from extrahepatic portal vein obstruction. This report describes modifications of this procedure in 5 patients. Either the splenic or coronary vein was used as the venous inflow point, and the bypass was performed either directly through transposition of the vein or with the use of a venous conduit.
