TIPSS, BRTO and portal hypertension - What it is

​Portal hypertension is a condition where there is an increase in the blood pressure of the portal vein. The portal vein carries blood from the bowel and spleen to the liver. The increase in portal vein pressure is caused by obstruction of blood flow due to scarring (liver cirrhosis) in patients with chronic liver disease.
