Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate shunt patency after placing a new polyurethane- coated Dacron-covered spiral Z stent-graft to create a transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS). Methods: TIPS stent-grafts were placed in six young swine, using polyurethane-coated, Dacron-covered spiral Z stent-grafts. Animals were followed weekly by transhepatic portal venography until shunt occlusion or up to 6 weeks, then were sacrificed for gross and histologic evaluation. Results: Five of six TIPS stent-grafts were found to be occluded by 3 weeks and none were patent at 6 weeks. Histologic evaluation demonstrated a marked foreign body reaction with superimposed thrombosis occluding the graft lumen. Conclusion: Polyurethane-coated Dacron-covered stentgrafts do not improve TIPS patency.
