Portal hypertension (PH) is a common complication of cirrhosis and can develop even in the absence of cirrhosis. This has prompted the development of a noninvasive method to monitor the clinical course of patients with PH. Hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG) reflects the intrahepatic vascular pressure and has been shown to correlate with clinical signs and outcomes in patients with PH and to predict mortality. This study tests the hypothesis that patients with noncirrhotic PH have an elevated mean pulmonary artery pressure (mPAP) that exceeds the HVPG. Patients with PH secondary to portal vein thrombosis were recruited from a PH clinic. All patients underwent Doppler echocardiographic assessment of systolic pulmonary artery pressure. These measurements were taken before and after HVPG measurement and correlated with demographic and clinical characteristics. One hundred ninety-eight subjects were enrolled. Mean age was 50 ± 13 years (range, 18 to 81 years), and 77% were male. The prevalence of cirrhosis was 21%. Mean portal vein pressure was 24 ± 7 mm Hg. A moderate correlation between HVPG and mPAP was found (r = 0.45; P
