The splanchnic circulation results from the gastric, small intestine, colonic, pancreatic, hepatic, and splenic circulation occurring simultaneously.
Sixty had PVT (62.5%), 10 had splenic VT (10.4%), 3 had BCS (3.1%), and 22 had multiple thromboses in the splanchnic area (22.9%).
The effect of epidural anaesthesia is usually neutral or decreases the splanchnic perfusion in normal subjects (31, 32), but improves tissue oxygenation in patients undergoing abdominal surgery (33, 34).
NOAC use in splanchnic vein thrombosis, a study by the Vascular Liver Disease Group (VALDIG) consortium that included patients with and without cirrhosis, showed thrombotic events in two of 58 treated patients (3.4 %), including a case of progression of PVT [10].

Although it is unlikely that either of these two studies [72, 73] induced a markedly elevated body temperature, severe hyperthermia of internal organs is a primary, noxious etiological factor that reduces splanchnic blood flow [81]; increases intestinal permeability [31]; injures intestinal epithelial cells [34]; and stimulates hypercoagulability.
Abernethy malformation (AM) is a rare congenital anomaly in which the splanchnic blood bypasses the liver and drains directly into the systemic veins.
Since the main pathophysiology of HRS is splanchnic arterial vasodilatation and renal arterial vasoconstriction that causes increase in resistive index (RI) of renal arterial system and the terlipressin (intravenously administered vasopressin 1 receptor agonist) causes selective vasoconstriction of splanchnic arterial vessels, which tends to reverse alterations in renal haemodynamic.
The splanchnic arteries arise at an early stage of fetal development (fourth week) as paired ventral segmental arteries from the paired dorsal aorta to supply the yolk sac.
