Treatment Options & Procedures
Though hepatology can deal with various gastrointestinal issues, it mainly
focuses on treatment and care of the liver. There are several procedures
that are commonly used to treat these types of diseases, conditions, and
disorders. For example, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography
is used to treat various biliary and pancreatic diseases.
Transhepatic pancreato-cholangiography is an X-ray that is used to detect
obstruction in the bile ducts or liver. Another procedure is a transjugular
intrahepatic portosystemic shunt, which is an artificial channel that
can create a connection between the portal and hepatic veins.
