Gastric variceal bleeding is a common problem in patients with cirrhosis and despite early endoscopic and/or pharmacological therapy, variceal bleeding cannot be controlled or recurs early in about 10 to 20% of patients with considerable morbidity and mortality rates. For this reason, effective control of active bleeding varices is of great importance for the prevention of late complications. Although endoscopic band ligation and sclerotherapy are the choice of endoscopic treatment modalities with various grades of success, limited data is available for the use of Ankaferd Blood Stopper (ABS) for the controlling of variceal bleeding due to gastric varices. We herein present a unique case of gastric variceal bleeding despite cyanoacrilate injection, which was successfully controlled with topical ABS application.
