ABSTRACT: 52 patients with Portal Hypertension were treated by Distal Splenorenal Shunt (DSRS) (15 percent) convential shunts (33 percent) and by nonshunt surgical procedures (52 percent). The results of the various procedures were compared retrospectively. Our experience suggests that DSRS, whenever, technically feasible should be preferred to the conventional shunts.
