Abstract

These data support the conclusion that the distal splenorenal shunt is attended by the highest post-shunt survival as yet reported for patients with non-alcoholic cirrhosis, portal hypertension and bleeding varices; the procedure is safe, and in this series, the mortality has been nil for 66 consecutive operations. An analysis of the causes of death suggests that continued alcohol abuse plays an important part in the late mortality among those in the post-shunt alcoholic cirrhosis group.
