Ileal conduit hemorrhage secondary to portal hypertension.

PMID:  311099     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The clinical features and management of 3 patients who presented with the triad of massive hemorrhage from the ileal conduit, portal hypertension due to liver disease, and portosystemic varices related to the conduits are described. One patient, a class C cirrhotic, was treated conservatively and died of blood loss and hepatic coma. Two patients were managed with splenorenal shunts initially, followed by creation of colon conduits, and are currently doing well. Surgical approximation of areas draining in the portal and systemic circulation with subsequent development or adhesion-related varices probably explains the predilection for involvement of the ileal conduit and may explain the presence of varices in mild to moderate portal hypertension before other signs of hepatic decompensation are evident. Superior mesenteric angiography with special attention directed at the venous phase is necessary to document this entity.
