Pulsed Doppler flow as a criterion of portal venous velocity: comparison with cineangiographic measurements.

An ultrasonic sector scanner and pulsed Doppler flowmeter were combined to measure portal venous velocity in 19 patients with portal hypertension and compared with cineangiographic mapping of a droplet of oil released into the portal vein. In 12 patients, measurements were made before and after pitressin [7] or ranitidine [5]. With the Doppler method, maximum basal portal venous velocity was 17.0 +/- 3.9 cm/sec., while average cineangiographic velocity was 8.5 +/- 2.7 cm/sec., a significant difference (p less than 0.001). After pitressin, velocity decreased to 8.3 +/- 2.7 cm/sec. with the Doppler method and 3.6 +/- 1.0 cm/sec. with cineangiography. Ranitidine did not produce an appreciable change. Doppler and cineangiographic velocity measurements exhibited significant correlation over a wide range of values (r = 0.960). Thus the pulsed Doppler method may give accurate values of portal venous velocity if they are corrected to cineangiographic values. Flow can be calculated from velocity and the cross-sectional area of the portal vein as measured on the sonogram. The Doppler method is simple and noninvasive and is particularly useful in studying changes in portal hemodynamics.[1]
