About this Book

Every five years, hepatologists with an interest in portal hypertension (high blood pressure in the portal vein), gather in Baveno, Italy, for the Baveno International Consensus Workshop on Portal Hypertension, attending workshops and examining the latest in clinical data and research on this condition. This book documents the contents of the meeting so that practitioners who could not be present at the conference still have access to the proceedings.
