Abstract: Portal hypertension is associated with an increased number of gastric polyps, hence the term portal hypertension-associated gastric polyps. Histopathological examination reveals mucosal hyperplasia and vascular proliferation. Formation may be due to mucosal injury that is vascular in nature. Their malignant potential has not been fully elucidated; however, lesions can grow to a large size. Patients with portal hypertension are at increased risk of post polypectomy bleeding and other complications of polypectomy. Surveillance is likely to be safer than multiple polypectomies, therefore in patients with portal hypertension it is essential that gastric polyps are photographed and biopsied during routine surveillance gastroscopies.
