[Ectopic intestinal varices in cirrhotic patients; an infrequent cause of severe intestinal bleeding].
Chirurgia (Bucur). 2003 May-Jun; 98(3):253-9.C

Abstract

We report on a cirrhotic patient, with history of colecistectomy, admitted for acute digestive bleeding. Esogastric causes were excluded by endoscopy; due to continuous hemorrhage, the patient was operated in the next 20 hours. The cause was established during the operation; solitary omfalo-enteric varices, with active vascular fistula. Preoperative etiology of acute intestinal bleeding may be difficult to establish, sometimes even during the surgical intervention. We comment upon rare causes of acute intestinal bleeding, mainly ectopic varices determined by portal hypertension.
