Abstract

A cirrhotic patient who had previously undergone both mesocaval shunting and transthoracic esophageal and gastric devascularization with splenectomy (Sugiura procedure) presented with recurring intractable variceal hemorrhage. Diagnostic visceral angiography demonstrated a large splenic arterial-venous fistula and gastroesophageal varices. Transarterial occlusion of the fistula and transhepatic obliteration of the varices successfully done at one sitting prevented further bleeding. Follow-up angiography nine months later revealed persistent occlusion of the previous fistula and no evidence of esophageal varices.
