Directly measure portal pressure under EUS

With the EchoTip Insight™ Portosystemic Pressure Gradient Measurement System, it’s possible to directly measure portal pressure under endoscopic ultrasound (EUS).

How does it work? When the desired portal vein has been identified, you use the EchoTip Insight system to take a set of three pressure measurements under EUS guidance. You can then take another set of three pressure measurements in the hepatic vein with EchoTip Insight.

Finally, you average these measurements to calculate the pressure gradient. (See the video below for more information about this procedure.)


The EchoTip Insight Portosystemic Pressure Gradient Measurement System includes a 25 gage needle with an echogenic tip to access the portal and hepatic veins, a connecting tube, and a transducer. EchoTip Insight’s compact, self-calibrating transducer provides a direct digital display of the pressure reading. (See the video below for more information on how to assemble the components to ensure a closed system.)
