Budd-Chiari syndrome treated by Senning's procedure


, : Budd-Chiari syndrome treated by Senning's procedure. Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery 29(6): 746-750

Two patients with Budd-Chiari syndrome who underwent a new surgical procedure developed by Senning are reported. A 33-year-old man was diagnosed as having Budd-Chiari syndrome with a membranous obstruction of the inferior vena cava (IVC) and right hepatic vein and short segmental obstruction of the left hepatic vein. Removal of the obstruction by dorsocranial resection of the liver and reconstruction of the veins by hepatoatrial anastomosis was carried out. In a 53-year-old female, the same procedure was carried out for a short segmental obstruction of the IVC and left hepatic vein. In both patients, postoperative examination revealed good patency of the IVC and the hepatic veins and increased portal venous flow as measured by Doppler-echography. This procedure is considered the method of choice for Budd-Chiari syndrome with membranous and/or short segmental obstruction of the IVC and hepatic veins.
