The research group of Assoc. Prof. Dr. Thomas Reiberger, the "Vienna Hepatic Hemodynamics Lab", focuses on clinical portal hypertension and liver cirrhosis.
The main goal is the development and research of pathophysiologically oriented new therapeutic approaches for portal hypertension and its complications. The core areas are the hepatic hemodynamics laboratory and the liver cirrhosis outpatient clinic. With more than 350 hepatic vein catheter measurements and transjugular liver biopsies per year, the "Vienna Hepatic Hemodynamic Lab" has established itself as a national and international reference center.
