Abstract

Liver cirrhosis complications in pregnant women are frequent and death rate secondary to variceal bleeding is relevant. Both sclerotherapy and banding ligation seem to be safe procedures in pregnancy; when bleeding is not arrested endoscopically an emergency transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt should be considered, but data regarding pregnant cirrhotic women are scarce. We describe the case of a pregnant woman at 14 weeks of gestation who underwent management of acute variceal bleeding by transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt. Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt may represent a rescue treatment for failed attempts of band ligation or sclerotherapy. © 2007 Editrice Gastroenterologica Italiana S.r.l.
