Gastric antral vascular ectasia with portal hypertension: treatment with TIPSS.
Am J Gastroenterol. 1997 Dec; 92(12):2292-4.AJ

Abstract

Gastric antral vascular ectasia, or "watermelon stomach," is a distinct clinical entity within the spectrum of upper gastrointestinal mucosal vascular abnormalities. The pathobiology of the disease is unclear. We here describe a case that emphasizes the importance of the "watermelon stomach" as differential diagnosis of occult gastrointestinal blood loss and report on its successful treatment through installation of a transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic stent shunt (TIPSS).
