Portal vein thrombosis (PVT) is a common complication in cirrhosis, and when complete, it increases morbidity and mortality in liver transplant candidates. The aim of the study was to assess the hemostatic status, as well as clinical characteristics of thrombus and patients, as predictors of therapeutic efficacy of anticoagulation for the treatment of PVT in cirrhotics.
