NIH Rare Diseases:43 Portal hypertension is abnormally high blood pressure in branches of the portal vein, the large vein that brings blood from the intestine to the liver. portal hypertension itself does not cause symptoms, but complications from the condition can lead to an enlarged abdomen, abdominal discomfort, confusion, drowsiness and internal bleeding. it may be caused by a variety of conditions, but cirrhosis is the most common cause in western countries. treatment is generally directed toward the cause of the condition, although emergency treatment is sometimes needed for serious complications. last updated: 2/1/2012

MalaCards: Portal Hypertension, also known as hypertension, portal, is related to hypertension and liver cirrhosis. An important gene associated with Portal Hypertension is UTS2 (urotensin 2), and among its related pathways are Agents Acting on the Renin-Angiotensin System Pathway, Pharmacodynamics and FOXA2 and FOXA3 transcription factor networks. The drugs acebutolol and amiloride and the compounds n(g)-nitro-l-arginine methyl ester and lacidipine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include liver, spleen and endothelial, and related mouse phenotypes are immune system and normal.
