Abstract

The use of the patent ductus venosus via a transjugular approach to access the portal system for endovascular treatment of hepatic vascular anomalies in three infants is reported. Two patients had an arterioportal fistula, and one had a rapidly involuting congenital hemangioma. All patients underwent arteriography followed by embolization of the vascular anomalies without complications. This alternative route is technically simpler and likely safer than transarterial and transhepatic approaches.
