Disappearance of the pseudo-cholangiocarcinoma sign after TIPSS

Am J Gastroenterol. 1996 Jan;91(1):150-4.

Abstract

Bile duct varices, also named the "pseudo-cholangio- carcinoma sign<" are frequently encountered by ERCP in portal hypertension cases due to cavernous transformation of the portal vein. There is a documentation that, in three cases, this sign disappeared after placement of a transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt.
