The portal vein pressure (PVP) and flow (PVF) have been associated with short and long term graft survival after liver transplantation. This article explores the relationships between PVF and PVP values during liver transplantation in order to have a better understanding of the hemodynamic stress during the operation and to have a better clinical judgment of portal inflow modulation.
