Vascular diseases of the liver can be divided into disorders of hepatic inflow (ie, diseases of the portal venous and hepatic arterial inflow) and disorders of hepatic venous outflow.

For a better understanding of the vascular diseases of the liver, a concise review of the vascular anatomy of the liver is important. This chapter reviews the anatomy of the splanchnic circulation, acute and chronic mesenteric venous thrombosis; hepatic artery thrombosis, aneurysm, and fistulas; ischemic hepatitis; hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia; veno-occlusive disease, and Budd-Chiari syndrome.
