Transvenous coil embolization of an intrahepatic portosystemic shunt in a dog.

Author information

  • 1Department of Surgery and Radiology, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Léon, Spain.


To treat an intrahepatic portosystemic shunt in a young dog, thrombogenic material was placed into the vessel lumen (transvenous coil embolization) under fluoroscopic control. One coil was placed into the shunt, followed one month later by two additional coils. Transvenous embolization may become a useful method in the treatment of some portosystemic shunts.
