Thrombosis of the portal venous system, although rare in the general population, is commonly diagnosed in patients with specific underlying conditions including prothrombotic diseases, cirrhosis, hepatobiliary malignancy, and intraabdominal inflammation. Recent improvements in imaging have played a fundamental role in increased detection of portal vein thrombosis (PVT), frequently reported in asymptomatic patients as an incidental finding. Minimally invasive, endovascular therapy is a medically rational option to achieve recanalization of the portal vein as an adjunct to conservative medical management. This review focuses on the advances in imaging modalities to diagnose, stage and follow-up PVT, and gives a short overview of the available endovascular techniques in this field.
