[Bleeding from hematocyst near anastomosis site after Ivor-Lewis operation]

Previous | List | Next

Early esophageal cancer was found near multiple esophageal varix, so Ivor-Lewis operation was done. A few months after the surgery, the patient developed massive upper GI bleeding. In endoscopy, there was a hematocyst just below the anastomosis site. It may be related with the portal hypertension.
