Abstract

Cirrhosis has been long considered a risk factor for bleeding due to the co-existence of the so-called ‘coagulopathy’. More recently, however, compelling evidences have been provided on the occurrence of thrombotic events in the portal and systemic circulation.3–5 Portal vein thrombosis (PVT) is predominantly observed in patients with moderate to severe liver failure with a variable prevalence ranging from 0.6 to 25%. Only fewstudies have provided a longitudinal assessment of the PVT incidence and its sequelae, including recurrence and survival.9–14 Due to the variability of PVT incidence and the paucity of data regarding recurrence and survival,15–20 we prospectively analysed the incidence and the recurrence of PVT in the population of Portal vein thrombosis Relevance On Liver cirrhosis: ItalianVenous thromboticEventsRegistry (PROLIVER), a multi-centre study,8 which involved 43 enrolling centres in Italy (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01470547).
