Several vasoactive agents are known to reduce portal pressure and therefore are potentially useful in the treatment of portal hypertension. These drugs act in different ways and seem to have several actions. In most cases, their exact mechanisms have not yet been elucidated and more investigations are required. Different pharmacologic treatments of portal hypertension may result from these hemodynamic studies but more trials are required in the forthcoming years.
