Hepatopulmonary syndrome. Pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment. Its frequency varies according to the diagnostic methods used. The most commonly associated liver disease is cirrhosis. The alveolar-arterial oxygen gradient seems to be the best parameter for the assessment of the abnormalities of arterial oxygenation.

For the detection of intrapulmonary vascular dilatations, contrast echocardiography is the method of choice because it is of easy execution and it can differentiate between the intrapulmonary and intracardiac communications.

At present, liver transplantation is considered to be the main therapeutic option for these patients, with encouraging results. Liver transplantation is the treatment of choice for patients with the syndrome. Headings: Hepatopulmonary syndrome, diagnosis. Hepatopulmonary syndrome, etiology. Hepatopulmonary syndrome, therapy.
