Bleeding pseudoaneurysm in chronic pancreatitis: Report of a case

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Hemorrhagic complications associated with acute and chronic pancreatitis are major factors contributing to the mortality and morbidity of pancreatic diseases. We report a case of a 33-year-old man who had massive upper gastrointestinal bleeding after a two-year history of chronic pancreatitis. The bleeder proved to be a hemorrhage of pseudoaneurysm and was treated successfully with transcatheter embolization.
