Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 44-year-old man with alcohol-induced chronic pancreatitis was referred to our institute for evaluation of severe anemia. The hemoglobin was 2.6g/dl. The results of upper gastrointestinal and colonic examination were negative. Computed tomography and ultrasound examination revealed a pseudocyst in the head of the pancreas. A pseudoaneurysm of the anterior superior pancreaticoduodenal artery shown by angiography appeared to have caused gastrointestinal bleeding by rupturing into the pancreatic cyst connected to the main pancreatic duct. A pyrorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy was performed successfully.
