Portal vein thrombosis (PVT)


Anyone with much experience with Portal vein thrombosis? I was told this week that I have a clot there, they don’t believe it’s a complete blockage but will be doing an ultrasound soon to determine. I cannot make blood thinners due to portal hypertension and very low platelets.

Would this ever be an indicator for transplant or could it preclude me from transplant?

Hope all are well.


I have a blood clot in my right hepatic vein (PVT), however, I am on coumadin (warfarin/blood thinner). Sorry to hear you can not take a blood thinner. I do not believe this will keep you from getting a transplant.

Best wishes.
