Although esophageal veins are the main source of variceal bleeding due to portal hypertension, gastric varices are causative in 10–36% [1]. In the latter, variceal rupture is the most feared complication, with prevalence around 30% [2–4] and a mortality of 45–55% [2–6]. Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) for this indication has less favourable results than for esophageal variceal hemorrhage: success rates for controlling gastric varices range from 50–63% [6, 7] versus 81% in… CONTINUE READING
