BCS has diverse aetiologies and presentation. Various endovascular treatment modalities exist for Budd Chiari Syndrome. With sound knowledge of USG, Doppler and cross section imaging and with appropriate patient selection the various treatments can be planned. Budd Chiari syndrome is a common cause of chronic liver disease in Asian countries and it is extremely essential that we are all aware of the various endovascular treatment options so that further liver damage can be prevented. If the disease progresses to fulminant hepatic failure then liver transplantation is the only hope for these patients.
