Portal vein thrombosis (PVT) is the blockage or narrowing of the portal vein by a thrombus. Portal vein thrombosis (PVT) is considered to be a frequent complication of liver cirrhosis. It is relatively rare and has been linked with the presence of an underlying liver disease or prothrombotic disorders. .
