Portal hypertension (PH) is the most common non-neoplastic complication of chronic liver disease, determining clinical complications that lead to death or liver transplantation. PH results from increased resistance to portal blood flow through the cirrhotic liver, which is due to hepatic fibrosis and microcirculatory dysfunction. The present review focuses on the pathophysiology of fibrosis and PH, describes currently used treatments, and critically discusses potential therapeutic options.
