Wael Mohialddin Ahmed Doush1. the distal splenorenal shunt (dsrs) is a surgical procedure during which the vein from the spleen (called the splenic vein) is detached from the portal vein and. the distal splenorenal shunt (dsrs) procedure provides good long-term control of bleeding in many people with portal hypertension. dsrs controls bleeding in.

We compared these patients with patients who underwent OLT during the same period without any preexisting shunt. Despite the introduction of new treatment methods, such as pharmacologic reduction of portal pressure, endoscopic sclerotherapy, and the coming of age of liver transplantation, surgical decompressive shunts still have a place in the overall treatment of portal hypertension.

Because splenorenal shunts are performed fairly frequently in India and other developing countries, and spleorenal Linton’s procedure is associated with several inherent difficulties, we developed an alternative technique Omar’s technique for the surgical treatment of portal hypertension.
