Abstract

Although polycystic liver disease has long been listed as a contraindication to transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) creation, two cases of TIPS placement in that particular clinical setting have been reported. Another case is reported in this article and the clinical course over 21 months of follow-up is examined. The discussion reviews the mechanics of TIPS creation in a polycystic liver and the vague premise of the polycystic liver as a contraindication to TIPS.
