Recurrent gastric varices bleeding after living-related liver transplantation successfully eradicated by splenic artery embolization.
Hepatogastroenterology. 2012 Jul-Aug; 59(117):1586-8.H

Abstract

Living related liver transplantation (LRLT) may not be the only treatment for recurrent bleeding due to severe gastric varices secondary to left-side portal hypertension and splenic vein thrombosis. Splenectomy is the preferred long-term standard treatment for non-orthotopic liver transplantation patients, but additional treatments such as post-transplantation partial splenic arterial embolization to preserve the immunological function of the spleen and thus prevent the occurrence of post LRLT severe infection are suggested for these patients.
