Conclusion

Familiarity with congenital aberrant mesenteric drainage is important to accurately diagnose CEPS and Abernethy malformation. Current CT and MR technologies make diagnosis of Abernethy malformation and other CEPS shunts possible. They also demonstrate the spectrum of findings seen in CEPS shunts far better than conventional catheter angiography, obviating the need for the latter in the triage of mesenteric-systemic shunts.
