Answer

Medications commonly used in patients with Budd-Chiari syndrome include diuretics, anticoagulants, and thrombolytics. The therapeutic interventions used (medical or otherwise) must be tailored to each patient's condition. The use of thrombolytics should be reserved for experts familiar with the special circumstances in which they may be appropriate. The use of anticoagulants should be directed towards therapy of an underlying coagulopathy.
