[Duodenal varix rupture a rare cause of gastrointestinal bleeding from portal hypertension].
Tunis Med. 2004 Jul; 82(7):708-11.TM

Abstract

The duodenal varix rupture is a rare and serious complication of portal hypertension. The authors report one case of duodenal varix rupture in a 38 year old woman, revealing portal hypertension, which caused a massive gastro-intestinal bleeding. The endoscopy didn't allow to conclude to a diagnosis. An emergent laparotomy was necessary regarding the massive bleeding. A duodenal varix suture ligation was performed after pyloroduodenotomy. She had a well recovery. After a review of literature, the authors conclude that this abnormal situation is rare, its diagnostic is difficult and it has several therapeutic strategies.
