Budd Chiari syndrome (BCS) is a clinical condition resulting from impaired hepatic venous drainage, due to obstruction of hepatic venous outflow at any level extending from the small hepatic veins to the junction of the inferior vena cava and the right atrium leading to hepatic congestion. Untreated cases have high mortality rates: up to 90% at 3 years post presentation .
We aim to highlight the various endovascular techniques at the disposal of the interventional radiologists for the treatment of this disease with pictorial examples and a brief review of recent literature.
