Diagnosis and Treatment of Cirrhosis with Duodenal Variceal Bleeding: a Case Report by Yanying Gao, Xu Zhang, Fenghui Li, Hua Liu, Qing Ye, Fang Wang, Fei Tang, Fushuang Ha, Junqing Yan, Hongmin Lv, Tao Han

Background: Cases of duodenal variceal hemorrhage after cirrhosis are rare, but patients have a higher mortality rate. There is currently no clinical guideline to address how such patients should choose preferred treatment.
Methods: We retrospectively evaluated the clinical information of a 65-year-old male admitted to the Gastroenterology Department with gastrointestinal bleeding.
Results: The patient was eventually diagnosed with duodenal variceal bleeding after cirrhosis. We performed TIPS on the patients after the vital signs were stable. No varicose veins were seen by endoscopy during the 2-year follow-up.
Conclusions: TIPS treatment is a good choice for patients with severe duodenal varices after cirrhosis.
