Abstract :

 Portal hypertension is one of the common liver disorders. If it is not evaluated early can leads to various complications. The present study aimed to evaluate the role of color Doppler in the diagnosis of portal hypertension. This study was conducted in the Department of Radiodiagnosis, Kannur Medical College, Kannur, Kerala during the period of six months. Patients were selected on the basis of clinical complications. A total of 40 patients were included in the study. All the patients were explained study procedure in detailed and inform consent was obtained. All the patients were subjected to color Doppler for the evaluation of portal hypertension.Maximum number of patients had age between 51-60 years. Males were more than females. Most patients showed coarse liver with presence of ascites. Maximum patients showed petal type of blood flow. 34 patients showed damping index less than <0.6.The present study results showed the significant changes in the lumen, blood flow and diameter of portal veins. Early diagnosis of portal hypertension plays major role in the prevention of mortality. From the study results it is concluded that color Doppler plays major in the diagnosis of portal hypertension.
