As per available reports Portal Hypertension Involves 12 Conference proceedings, 3 National Symposiums are presently dedicated exclusively to Portal Hypertension and about 6 Open Access articles are being published on Portal Hypertension.
Portal hypertension is defined as a portal vein pressure greater than 10 mmHg (250 mm water column). Normal portal venous pressure is 5 to 10 mmHg. Pressure in the portal vein of the patients with portal hypertension exceeds 25 cm water column.Clinical Research and Interventions. Portal Hypertension Entities like Basic Science of Obesity and Overweigth .The phenomena of increased pressure in this venous circulation produce a wide array of hemodynamic and metabolic consequences, including some of the most lethal and distressing complications.

Scope and Importance:
Portal hypertension refers to abnormally high pressure in the hepatic portal vein. Clinically significant portal hypertension is defined as an hepatic venous pressure gradient of 10 mm Hg Portal hypertension and cirrhosis produce a hyperdynamic circulation, with splanchnic vasodilatation, increased cardiac output, arterial hypotension, and hypervolaemia. There is salt and water retention, ascites and hyponatraemia. The portal hypertension itself is difficult to treat effectively, except by treating the underlying cause (where possible) and liver transplantation.
The most common cause of portal hypertension is cirrhosis of the liver. Cirrhosis is scarring which accompanies the healing of liver injury caused by hepatitis, alcohol, or other less common causes of liver damage. In cirrhosis, the scar tissue blocks the flow of blood through the liver and slows its function.
As portal hypertension produces no symptoms it is usually diagnosed following presentation with decompensated chronic liver disease encephalopathy, ascites or variceal bleeding. Its treatment includes endoscopic therapy and medication.
The global portal hypertension therapeutics market is estimated to be valued at $1.7 billion in 2011. It is expected to grow to $1.9 billion at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 2.0% by 2019. This slow growth is due to the slow increase in the prevalent population, the domination of the market by generics and low likelihood of new product launches during the forecast period.
