ABSTRACT
The article presents a study on the increased portal circulation pressure and its effects on the upper gastrointestinal activity in the U.S. Portal hypertension leads to the formation of esophageal and gastric varices resulting to a gastrointestinal blood loss. Arterialization of the portal vein results in a progressive development of intrinsic hepatic morphologic changes and hepatoportal sclerosis, which further elevate the pressure in the portal system.
