Özet

Bleeding from anorectal varices can be massive and life-threatening. Punctual separation between hemorrhoids and anorectal varices is important. Numerous treatment options are available for management of bleeding anorectal varices, but none of them has demonstrated definitive efficacy. We report a case of successful transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt in controlling massive recurrent rectal variceal bleeding in an elderly male patient.
