A transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) is a minimally invasive procedure that helps blood continue to flow through the liver, preventing bleeding in the abdomen, stomach, and bowel. This procedure can help people who have liver scarring (cirrhosis) caused by advanced liver disease.
The University of Miami Health System interventional radiologists use imaging guidance to perform this innovative procedure.
