But the liver is suitable to one of the major blood vessels of the body - the portal (portal), Vienna. Blood through the portal vein from the digestive organs to the liver and then travels to the heart.
Liver cirrhosis damaged, can notpass through a required amount of blood at the required rate, and blood coming from the stomach and esophagus, it stagnates. There is a state of portal hypertension - high blood pressure in the portal vein. This leads to varicose veins of the esophagus and stomach.
