ABSTRACT
Peritoneal venous shunts are effective in providing lasting relief to patients with medically intractable ascites. Nutrition and renal function improve. Reported complications are varied. As far as we know, the complication of superior vena cava obstruction reported here has not been reported before. Response to conservative therapy resulted in amelioration of edema of the upper trunk and face.
