A retrospective multi-institutional study was carried out on a series of 38 patients with histologically proved Budd-Chiari syndrome: Five patients had acute disease, and 33 had subacute or chronic disease. All patients underwent dynamic CT scanning. Angiography was performed in 20 cases, inferior cavography in 22, and wedge-hepatic.
The authors describe four patients with Budd-Chiari syndrome in whom contrast material-enhanced computed tomographic (CT) scans demonstrated low-density venous thrombosis in three sites not, to our knowledge, previously described with this modality. Thrombosis was seen in the portal circulation, the hepatic veins, and the intrahepatic inferior. Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) consists of a group of disorders with obstruction of hepatic venous outflow leading to increased hepatic sinusoidal pressure and portal hypertension. Clinically, two forms of disease (acute and chronic) are recognized. Mostly the patients present with ascites, hepatomegaly Budd-Chiari syndrome can occur at any age, and it is more common in women. Presentation varies from fulminant signs and symptoms to an asymptomatic condition recognized fortuitously, depending on the temporal nature of the disease (acute, subacute, or chronic). With regard to cause, Budd-Chiari syndrome can be classified into primary or secondary
tions of patients with Budd-Chiari syndrome. We illustrate the spectrum of imaging find-ings in Budd-Chiari syndrome, including CT, MR, sonographic, and angiographic findings. Epidemiologic, Etiologic, and Pathogenetic Aspects Budd-Chiari syndrome can occur at any age, and it is more common in women. Pre-sentation varies from fulminant signs an The Budd-Chiari syndrome is a relatively uncommon illness that presents with clinical findings of portal hypertension, inferior vena cava (IVC) hypertension, or both as a result of hepatic venous or IVC outflow obstruction. The obstruction may be due to membranous web (s) of the hepatic vein (s) ( Fig. 7-1) or suprahepatic IVC, thrombosis of.

Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is a rare disease that is characterized by hepatic venous outflow tract obstruction (HVOTO), with an estimated incidence of 0.87 per million population per year. Most patients with Budd-Chiari syndrome have an underlying thrombotic diathesis, although in approximately one third of patients, the condition is idiopathic Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is a rare disease with an incidence of 0.1 to 10 per million inhabitants a year caused by impaired venous outflow from the liver mostly at the level of hepatic veins and inferior vena cava. Etiological factors include hypercoagulable conditions, myeloprolipherative disease Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is a rare cause of portal hypertension and liver failure. This condition is characterized by an impaired hepatic venous drainage. The diagnosis of BCS is based on imaging, which helps initiate treatment.

Budd-Chiari syndrome is a very rare condition, affecting one in a million adults. The condition is caused by occlusion of the hepatic veins that drain the liver.It presents with the classical triad of abdominal pain, ascites, and liver enlargement.The formation of a blood clot within the hepatic veins can lead to Budd-Chiari syndrome. The syndrome can be fulminant, acute, chronic, or. Terminology. Also called hepatic vein thrombosis. Historically, Budd-Chiari syndrome technically referred to the triad of painful hepatomegaly, ascites and liver dysfunction. Membranous obstruction of the vena cava / obliterative hepatocavopathy likely represents recanalized thrombosis, more commonly seen in developing countries
Budd-Chiari syndrome is defined as hepatic venous outflow tract obstruction, independent of the level or mechanism of obstruction, provided the obstruction is not due to cardiac disease, pericardial disease, or sinusoidal obstruction syndrome (veno-occlusive disease). Primary Budd-Chiari syndrome is present when there is obstruction due to a. 1. Cardiovasc Intervent Radiol. 2015 Dec;38(6):1508-14. doi: 10.1007/s00270-015-1105-4. Epub 2015 Apr 23. Use of Accessory Hepatic Vein Intervention in the Treatment of Budd-Chiari Syndrome A diagnosis of Budd Chiari syndrome (BCS) was made on the basis of the clinical and imaging features. The patient was referred to the interventional radiology team for an endovascular rescue. On conventional venogram, the diagnosis of BCS was confirmed as the hepatic veins were thrombosed
Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is defined by clinical and laboratory signs associated with partial or complete impairment of hepatic venous drainage in the absence of right heart failure or constrictive pericarditis. Primary BCS is the most frequent type and is a complication of hypercoagulable states, in particular myeloproliferative neoplasms. Secondary BCS involves tumor invasion or extrinsic. Abstract.

Budd-Chiari syndrome. Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is a disorder affecting the liver and blood vessels, where blood flowing into the liver has difficulty in being able to flow out, leading to serious complications. After blood has passed through the liver, it flows out through the hepatic veins and into the inferior vena cava, a large blood. It is known that concomitant portal vein thrombosis may be seen in 20% of patients with Budd-Chiari syndrome. Three of the four patients in the current study had this finding, one with extensive thrombosis of portal, mesenteric, and splenic veins and the other two with portal vein branch involvement Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is a rare disorder which may result in liver failure. Management should therefore be in coordination with a liver transplantation unit Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is defined as obstruction of the hepatic venous outflow. This obstruction might be located anywhere between the small hepatic veins to the suprahepatic inferior vena cava (IVC). 1 The typical patient is a young woman presenting with abdominal pain, ascites, and hepatomegaly; however, the clinical presentation varies Causes of Budd-Chiari syndrome include myeloproliferative syndromes, malignancy, infection, and Behҫet syndrome.

Budd-Chiari Syndrome Definition Budd-Chiari syndrome is a rare problem that results from blood clotting  in the veins flowing out of the liver (hepatic veins). The high pressure of blood in these veins leads to an enlarged liver, and to an accumulation of fluid in the abdomen, called ascites
Hepatic venous outflow obstruction (Budd-Chiari syndrome—BCS) was diagnosed in 30 patients during the period from March, 1987, to May, 1991, in Hacettepe University Hospital, Turkey. Patients with Behçet's disease constituted the major group (12/30) in the etiologic distribution In six cases of Budd-Chiari syndrome, wedged hepatic venography and inferior vena cavography were performed, and hepatic arteriography was carried out in two of these cases. Specific patterns on the wedged hepatic venogram seen only in this condition are described T1 - Imaging findings in budd-chiari syndrome. AU - McKusick, Michael A.

Discussion Budd-Chiari is an uncommon form of portal hypertension caused by obstruction of the hepatic venous outflow, at the level of either the large hepatic veins (classic Budd-Chiari ) or the hepatic segment of the inferior vena cava (IVC) Noninvasive imaging modalities may suggest the diagnosis of Budd—Chiari syndrome but they are rarely diagnostic. Inferior vena cavography, hepatic venography, and liver biopsy, alone or in combination, are usually necessary for definitive diagnosis. Because of its excellent depiction of blood vessels as regions of absent signal, magnetic resonance imaging has the potential to make a.
