On the basis of their findings, the authors have concluded that the surgeon contemplating the construction of a mesocaval shunt can expect to find ideal or nearly ideal conditions in approximately one third of the population. Another two thirds can be expected to present anatomical variations which may complicate the procedure in varying degrees. In approximately one tenth of the cases, the construction of a shunt would probably prove impossible.
