wedged and free hepatic venous pressure (WHVP and FHVP)
Explanation:
Hi JohnClaude,

La presión de enclavamiento es la presión que se toma al inflar el balón terminal de un catéter que termina en un globito flotante ("free floating balloon"). La presión de enclavamiento se llama "wedge (or wedged) pressure" (lo cual en realidad literalmente sería "presión de cuña"), tanto para los catéteres pulmonares como para los hepáticos.

Para los catéteres hepáticos, la presión medida con el catéter desinflado es la "free hepatic venous pressure".

Groszmann RJ, Glickman M, Blei AT, Storer E, Conn HO. Gastroenterology. 1979 Feb;76(2):253-8. **Wedged and free hepatic venous pressure measured with a balloon catheter**.

The accuracy and reliability of a balloon catheter for measuring **wedged hepatic venous pressure (WHVP)** were evaluated in 82 simultaneous determinations using the balloon catheter technique and the direct measurement of portal venous pressure. These measurements showed a close positive correlation (r = 0.97) over a wide range of pressures in 12 normal and 4 cirrhotic dogs. Studies were then performed in 13 cirrhotic patients in whom the balloon catheter was introduced using the Seldinger technique. **Free hepatic venous pressure (FHVP) was measured with the balloon undistended**. By distending the balloon to occlude the hepatic vein, the **WHVP** was recorded....



Sarin SK, Kapoor D. Non-cirrhotic portal fibrosis: current concepts and management.

Non-cirrhotic portal hypertension (NCPH) comprises diseases having an increase in portal pressure (PP) due to intraheptic or prehepatic lesions, in the absence of cirrhosis. The lesions are generally vascular, either in the portal vein, its branches or in the perisinusoidal area. Because the **wedged hepatic venous pressure** is near normal, measurement of intravariceal or intrasplenic pressure is needed....
