Abstract

 

Duodenal variceal bleeding is a rare, but potentially life-threatening, complication of portal hypertension. Endoscopic therapy is usually the initial treatment option for bleeding duodenal varices, but it is not always feasible or successful. We present a technique of coil-assisted retrograde transvenous obliteration in a patient with duodenal varices originating from the inferior pancreaticoduodenal vein and draining into the right ovarian vein.
