CLINICAL DIAGNOSIS: Alcoholic cirrhosis (n=18), inferior cava thrombosis (n=2), splenic vein thrombosis (n=1), cryptogenic cirrhosis (n=3), with association of variceal bleeding and refractory ascites. The surgical procedures consisted of porto-sistemic shunts (n=12), peritoneo-saphene shunts (n=10), mesenterico-caval shunt (n=1), mesenterico-right atrium shunt (n=1)...

We recommend definitive porto-sistemic shunt after the bleeding episode has been controled.

Survival without dysphagia occurred in all but stage I tumors; for larger tumors recurrence and reflux esophagitis were not able to produce dysphagia because distant metastases were faster to kill the patients...
