Gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE), also known as "watermelon stomach", is an uncommon condition, which can cause gastrointestinal bleeding due to rupture of blood vessels that line the stomach. The pathogenesis of GAVE remains unclear; however it is thought that hemodynamic changes, mechanical stress, and autoimmune factors all have a part to play. A range of conditions are also commonly associated with the syndrome, such as portal hypertensive gastropathy, liver cirrhosis, and autoimmune disorders. Less commonly, chronic renal failure, cardiac diseases, and bone marrow transplantation have coexisted with GAVE...

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is an autoimmune disease characterized by excessive extracellular matrix deposition in the skin and internal organs. Three major abnormalities, autoimmunity, vasculopathy, and fibrosis, are considered to play important roles in the pathophysiology of SSc. SSc is a heterogeneous disease with clinical features, disease progress, therapeutic response, and prognosis. Therefore, identification of biomarkers, which can predict the course of the disease, is required for the progress of clinical practice...

Gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE) and solitary rectal ulcer syndrome (SRUS) are both mentioned in the literature as rare causes of iron deficiency anemia and gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. GAVE accounts for up to 4 % of upper non-variceal GI bleeding; SRUS is a rare benign disorder that presents with rectal bleeding. We present the case of a 75-year-old patient who was admitted to our facility with anemia. In the same patient, we encountered chronic bleeding from GAVE and SRUS. Both diagnoses were treated endoscopically: GAVE by argon plasma coagulation and a subsequent treatment with proton pump inhibitors and SRUS by adrenaline injection and clipping, consecutively treated with mesalazine enemas...

Irregular vascular dilatation in the antrum or the cardia of the stomach can be the cause of severe gastrointestinal bleeding. The first term for it - in the beginning of the 50's of the previous century - was GAVE (Gastric Antral Vascular Ectasia) since at that time no similar phenomenon had been registered before. A quarter of a century later, after publishing a few cases, a witty internist described it as "watermelon stomach" because the macroscopic picture is similarly looking as the aforesaid fruit's appearing...

Gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE) is known to be characterized by red patches or spots in a diffuse or linear array in the antrum of the stomach. The precise etiology of GAVE remains to be elucidated. Argon plasma laser coagulation (APC) has been used to control oozing from GAVE; however, there is no satisfactory long-term effect of APC in the control of oozing from GAVE. An acid reducer is used after APC because even physiological acid exposure might delay post-APC ulcer healing. We describe the case of a patient who had used an acid reducer and experienced repeated gastrointestinal hemorrhage due to GAVE...

This case report describes the findings of oesophageal vascular ectasia (OVE) in a patient with known gastric antral vascular ectasia, who presented with anaemia. OVE is a very rare endoscopic finding and therefore a diagnostic challenge. An 85-year-old male was admitted due to anaemia. He went through a gastroscopic examination where severe OVE changes were seen, along with newfound oesophageal varices. There was no need for treating the OVE, but the findings coupled with the knowledge of the varices led to the diagnosis of portal thrombosis...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE) is an important cause of upper gastrointestinal bleeding and anemia in patients with cirrhosis. The aim of our study was to evaluate the effect of orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) on GAVE and associated anemia. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed a chart review and identified all cirrhotic patients with GAVE who underwent OLT at the University Of Alabama at Birmingham between 2005 and 2013. Population's demographics, etiology of cirrhosis, comorbidities, presentation and treatment modalities of GAVE, endoscopic and histopathologic reports, hemoglobin values before and after transplant, and immunosuppressive regimens were collected...

Gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE) and chronic radiation proctitis (CRP) are well-known causes of repeated gastrointestinal bleeding and iron deficiency anemia. Argon plasma coagulation (APC) is the most common endoscopic therapy used, but some patients need multiple APC sessions. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is recently used in GAVE and CRP treatment with promising results. In this case series, we analyzed data for 15 patients with GAVE and 5 patients with CRP that had multiple prior APC treatment. They were treated with RFA HALO 90 catheter (HALO90 Ablation Catheter System; Covidien, GI Solutions, Sunnyvale, CA) in our tertiary referral center...

OBJECTIVES: Although a common cause of intestinal blood loss, the pathophysiology of gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE) is not well understood. We aimed to evaluate gastric antral and body mucosal flow in GAVE patients compared to a control population using laser Doppler flowmetry. METHODS: 27 patients with GAVE and 11 control patients without GAVE were evaluated using an endoscopic LDF probe. The probe was placed in the gastric antrum and body in order to calculate standardized mucosal flow rates recorded as perfusion units (PU)...

Gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE) continues to be a challenge in both diagnosis and treatment. GAVE has a diverse group of associations and presumed causes, including cirrhosis, chronic renal failure and autoimmune connective tissue diseases. However, in most occasions, the management plan of GAVE itself is the same whatever the underlying disease by using Argon plasma coagulation (APC). Herein, we will discuss three cases of systemic sclerosis-associated GAVE presenting with either acute or chronic gastrointestinal bleeding showing variable responses to APC...

History and findings | A 56-year-old female with a gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE) suffered from recurrent episodes of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Because of a history of a permanent atrial fibrillation (CHA2DS2-VASc score 3 points) an oral anticoagulation therapy with phenprocoumon was carried out which even worsened the bleeding frequency and intensity. A change of medication to low-molecular weight heparin did not lead to success. The frequent periods in hospital limited the patient's quality of life...

Gastric antral vascular ectasias (GAVE) have been increasingly recognized as an uncommon cause of chronic gastrointestinal bleeding and anemia, although their underlying pathogenesis is not completely well understood. Heterotopic gastric mucosa (HGM) has been reported to occur at various sites along the gastrointestinal tract and although relatively common, it is often asymptomatic. We report a case of a 60-year-old woman with a prior history of GAVE who developed melena and symptomatic anemia during her hospitalization following cardiac catheterization...

OBJECTIVE: Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is the most common cause of gastritis and peptic ulcer. However, H. pylori is even involved in extragastric diseases, and it has been hypothesized that H. pylori could be a risk factor for several hepatic diseases. For instance, a direct involvement of H. pylori in the development of portal hypertension (PH) in cirrhotic patients has been postulated. METHODS: We performed a literature search in major databases to elucidate the relationship between H...
