Author information

Abstract

A patient with severe ulcerative colitis developed portal vein thrombosis. Intraportal infusion of plasminogen activators through a percutaneous transhepatic catheter produced an effective thrombolysis without increasing rectal bleeding. This is the first report in which portal vein thrombosis associated with active ulcerative colitis was treated successfully.
