Ultrasound Budd–Chiari syndrome (BCS)

Budd–Chiari syndrome is the name given to the symptoms associated with partial or complete occlusion of the hepatic veins. There are numerous
causes of hepatic vein occlusion, of which the main ones are:
● congenital or acquired coagulation disorders, which may affect both the hepatic and portal veins (potentially treatable by liver transplant) ● malignancy: primary or secondary liver tumour may invade the hepatic veins or may travel up the IVC (for example renal carcinoma) to occlude the hepatic vein confluence
● congenital web obstructing the IVC (surgically removable).
