Extract

Introduction: Portopulmonary hypertension (PoPH) is a rare but serious complication of portal hypertension or portosystemic shunting. PoPH management may require orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) but this procedure is contraindicated in patients with severe hemodynamic impairment. There are only few reports describing PoPH management and outcome in children.

Methods: We describe our series of children with PoPH. Diagnostic workup was performed according to the current international guidelines and precapillary pulmonary hypertension (PH) was confirmed by right heart catheterization. All cases were discussed by our multidisciplinary PH program team. Patient data was collected via chart review.
