01.  Portography after left PV peripheral patentbranch puncture

02.  Introducer sheath is advance and portography “above the thrombus” is performed

03.  Portography “below the thrombus” – tumor thrombus is documented

04.  Guidewire and 5Fr diameter advantage catheter is introduced in left gastric vein (LGV)

05.  Contrast injection in LGV depicts esophageal varicosis
