Abstract

We report a 64-yr-old patient with liver cirrhosis and bleeding esophageal varices that were obliterated by repeated endoscopic sclerotherapy. Eleven years later, he developed a massive, life-threatening rectosigmoid variceal hemorrhage. An endoscopic injection with N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (Histoacryl), performed over the rectosigmoid varices, achieved temporary hemostasis. The etiology, prevalence, relationship with portal hypertension, diagnosis, and treatment of colorectal varices are discussed.
