  • The authors present a single-institutional experience with intrahepatic collateral vessel recanalization as a treatment option in symptomatic Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS). Over a period of 26 months, this procedure was performed in four symptomatic patients in whom standard hepatic vein recanalization was not feasible or had failed, with a follow-up duration ranging from 7 to 44 months. Based on these cases, intrahepatic collateral vessel recanalization is a promising treatment option in suitable patients with symptomatic BCS and is deserving of further study.
