Acute gastric variceal bleeding is one of the most serious complications in portal hypertension, and is associated with high mortality and morbidity. Endoscopic variceal obturation (EVO) using Histoacryl(R) (n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate) has been accepted as an effective hemostatic procedure in acute gastric variceal bleeding. However, EVO is not a widely performed because of technical difficulties and complications such as mucosal ulceration, perforation, and systemic embolism. Herein, we report a patient who developed hepatic failure caused by portal vein occlusion by Histoacryl(R) injection for management of gastric variceal bleeding.
Key Words: Gastric variceal bleeding, Histoacryl(R), Portal vein occlusion, Splenic vein occlusion
