TIPSS, BRTO and portal hypertension

TIPSS, BRTO and portal hypertension - Causes and Risk Factors

​Cirrhosis is the most common reason for developing portal hypertension. Cirrhosis develops when the liver is damaged from alcohol consumption, hepatitis B or C viruses as well as obesity. In cirrhosis, the scar tissue which forms inside the liver obstructs the flow of blood entering it through the portal vein and thereby increases the portal pressure.
