Abstract

A rare case of an aberrant left gastric vein functioning as a hepatopetal collateral as a result of portal vein occlusion is presented herein. The portal venous phase of multislice computed tomography clearly demonstrated this anatomic variation and provided a reliable vascular "road map" for percutaneous transhepatic portal venous stent placement. Portal hypertension associated with extensive gastrojejunal varices improved dramatically after stent placement.
