PMID:  9196704     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A debilitated patient with liver cirrhosis and poor haemostasis had a severe lower gastrointestinal haemorrhage. A superior mesenteric arteriogram revealed an early persistent and promiment draining vein in the ileocolic artery. Two fragments of Spongostan and silk were used to embolise the bleeding artery and the haemorhage ceased immediately. No infarction of the embolised area was observed and the bleeding was controlled.
