Abstract: ABSTRACT:Objective To summarize the preliminary experience of a new type of radical treatment of Budd-Chiari syndrom under genuine direct vision. Methods We retrospectively analyzed the clinical data of 60 patients who were treated with radical exposing the whole inferior vena cava of hepatic segment in our hospital from September 2001 to October 2006. Results All lesions were completely resected under direct vision. Among all the patients, 3 were performed under extracorporeal circulation, 52 under catheterization of right atrium, 4 under cell saver, 1 under auto-retrieving of blood. The retrieved blood was from 300 to 4000 ml. The transfusion of banked blood was from 400 to 2000 ml for 14 patients, and no transfusion of banked blood were required for other patients. One patient died of renal failure during peri-operative period. The new-formed inferior vena cava(IVC) membrane was found in one relapsed patient whose IVC thrombosis removed one year ago. Asymptomatic restenosis of IVC was found in one patient after operation. Symptoms and signs disappeared in other patients after operations. Conclusion The new radical resection provides clearer visual field during operation and thus facilitates the resection of injuries.
