Splanchnic vein thrombosis in patients with myeloproliferative neoplasm: little more than a blood disease in need for the evaluation of its treatment

Authors: Dominique-Charles Valla


Valerio de Stefano and colleagues report their findings in a survey on splanchnic vein thrombosis (SVT) in 181 patients with myeloproliferative neoplasm. The major interest of this report is represented by the fact that the collaborating units were hematology units, whereas most previously reported material thus far has come from liver units. Contrasting the features according to the types of contributing units is most useful when one wants to make an idea of the disease as real as possible.
