Diagnosis and Intervention in Vascular Diseases of the Abdomen

  • D. Hunter
Conference paper
Part of the Syllabus book series (SYLLABUS)


The first part of this chapter will deal with one of the topics most central to vascular intervention in the abdomen, that of gastrointestinal bleeding. There is no question that in today’s world, gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding is diagnosed and managed for the most part, endoscopically. Nonetheless, there are some cases in which GI bleeding requires imaging and percutaneous intervention for control.
