Dear Friends, As some of you already now we are collecting a large multicenter cohort of patients with IPH whithin the VALDIG network. In this cohort (more than 600 patients there are 5 patients with ICV that received a TIPS. All of them for refractory ascites. All of them died without the possibility to be transplanted because of severe comorbidities (one of these patients is from our center). Approximately one year ago we were requested to do a TIPS in a young female with severe portal hypertension that required a bone marrow transplantation. TIPS procedure was very well tolerated and bone marrow succesfully transplanted. She is still on flllow up.
I hope this may be of help
