1 doctor agrees

In brief: Abnormal

It is the type of circulation that develops as a result of a compromised blood flow through the portal vein that passes through the liver secondary to scarring of the liver caused by perpetual inflammation.
This condition is known as liver cirrhosis, which usually develops as an end stage of the inflammatory process.
