Abstract

PURPOSE: To evaluate the ability of stent-grafts made with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) graft material to improve transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) patency. MATERIALS AND METHODS: TIPS were created in 13 swine by using PTFE-covered stent-grafts. Uncovered TIPS were placed in 13 other swine. Twenty-one of 26 animals were followed up with portal venog-raphy for 3 months or until the shunt became severely stenotic. Five animals without severe stenosis were sacrificed before 3 months because of illness. RESULTS: At 4 weeks after TIPS placement, nine of 13 stent-graft TIPS were patent (
