Hepato-atrial anastomosis, the "other Senning operation" for treatment of Budd-Chiari syndrome.
Swiss Medical Weekly
A now 36-year-old woman developed a suprahepatic inferior vena cava stenosis, 9 years after liver transplantation for extensive liver echinococcosis. The lesion was treated by percutaneous angioplasty and stenting. Five years later, recurrence of echinococosis with intrastent stenosis together with clinical symptoms, prompted surgical treatment. Hepato-atrial anastomosis was performed under cardiopulmonary bypass with good result.
