We present a case report of a patient suffering from portal and superior mesenteric vein thrombosis secondary to splenectomy.
No surgical procedure could be performed due to the extension of thrombus. Local fibrinolysis treatment with urokinase through a percutaneous transhepatic approach was decided upon, and this procedure had a successful patient outcome.
