ABSTRACT: Surgery for Portal hypertension (PH) has an operative mortality of 5 percent for a good risk patient and 5-year survival 65-70 percent. In a poor risk patient, the mortality is as high as 50 percent. The success or failure of shunt surgery depends on the duration of patency and the cross sectional area of the shunt used. Regular follow-up of these patients, with checking of shunt patency, permits early diagnosis of potentially morbid complications. This is preliminary report of a prospective study being conducted on the evaluation of the use of Doppler sonography (DS) to confirm shunt patency in the early and long term periods following surgery for Extra-Hepatic Portal Venous Obstruction (EHPVO).
