this is incomplete history. what is the cause of portal hypertension? if u have only portal hypertension and no cirrhosis than u have fair chance of improvement. so don't get depressed ,,consult nearby medical gastroenterologist.

Hi,
Liver transplantation is the ultimate shunt, because it relieves portal hypertension, prevents variceal rebleeding, and manages ascites and encephalopathy by restoring liver function. It is the treatment modality that has significantly improved the outcome of patients with Child-Pugh class C disease and variceal bleeding.
