TIPS for Portal Hypertension
Transjugular Intrahepatic Portosystemic Shunt Treatment in Delhi
TIPS is a transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt procedure that is used to treat internal bleeding in the oesophagus or stomach, for patients with cirrhosis. Imaging is used during the procedure to connect the portal and hepatic vein in the liver. A metal device known as a stent will hold the connection open, allowing blood flow from the bowel to circulate back to the heart and avoid the liver at the same time.
