Two cases of Budd-Chiari syndrome caused by membranous occlusion of the proximal portion of the inferior vena cava are presented. Both were treated surgically, using the modified technique of Kimura in one case, and a resection with direct vision and extracorporeal circulation in the other. Both patients progresed well. We discuss the etiology and pathogenesis of the syndrome, the diagnostic means that can be used, and the importance of early treatment.
