PANEL DISCUSSION DESCRIPTION
Portosystemic shunts are one of the most common congenital vascular anomalies in dogs and cats. The diagnosis is originally suspected based on clinical signs, abnormalities on screening blood work, and elevated serum bile acid or ammonia levels. It can however be confirmed preoperatively by imaging modalities including CT angiography, ultrasound, or scintigraphy.
Treatment of extrahepatic shunts involves surgery, whereas intrahepatic shunts can either be addressed with surgery or interventional radiology.
An international multidisciplinary panel of world-renowned experts will use case examples to debate the best tests to diagnose and image portosystemic shunts. Discussions will furthermore cover options for preoperative stabilization, surgical and interventional treatment, and postoperative management and monitoring strategies.
