Livershunt or IHPSS in Wolfhounds

Inheritance of Livershunt (IHPSS) in Irish Wolfhounds

I wrote this article about the inheritance of livershunt (intrahepatic porto systemic shunt or IHPSS) in Irish Wolfhounds so that breeders might be able to better evaluate annotated pedigrees in families of dogs they are hoping to incorporate into their breeding programme. It first appeared in IW World magazine, in the spring of 2015.

I based the calculations used on the likely mode of inheritance described in this paper by Frank van Steenbeek
