Variceal bleeding is the most common cause of severe gastrointestinal bleeding in chilhood. Biliary atresia and portal venous obstruction are the most common causes. The patients with acute bleeding, pharmacotherapy with octreotide should be used immediately. All of these patients should undergo therapeutic endoscopy with band ligation. All children surviving variceal hemorrage should undergo secondary prophylaxis with band ligation. Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt creation in children is as safe in children than in adults...

We report a case of malignant schwannoma of the duodenum, a neural tumor, which rarely occurs in the gastroduodenal tract. The diagnosis was done after an hemorragic episode of the upper gastrointestinal tract and the treatment done was a local resection. Two years later the patient had no symptoms, but the control endoscopy showed a recurrence of the tumor in the second portion of the duodenum and the patient was submitted to a gastroduodenopancreatectomy. The authors reported the case and make a revision on intestinal schwannomas...

Author's experience about 70 endoscopic polipectomy of high gastrointestinal tract, realized on 53 patients during 1978-1983 period was evaluated. Esophaguel polyps incidence was 0.06% among 7.900 endoscopic studies; gastric polyps was 0.8% and duodenal was 0.03%. Diagnosis was radiologically suspected in 58%. Gastric antrum was the predominant localization (45.7%) and macroscopic Yamada types IV (32.8%) and III (30.0%) were found more frequently. Most of patients presented solitary polips (86.7%). 63.2% of pieces were under 10 mm in size and 35...

The angiographic localization of gastroesophageal-junction hemorrage emanating from the left inferior phrenic artery (which originated from the abdominal aorta) is described. The diagnosis was established after conventional selective celiac and left gastric arteriography failed to demonstrate extravasation. The arteriographic evaluation of upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage requires consideration of the variable arterial distribution to the gastroesophageal junction and an awareness of the variable causes of dense opacification (including superimposed adrenal glands) that may mimic extravasation...

Prognosis in upper gastrointestinal hemorrage (UGIH) depends mostly upon an early diagnosis. The addition of an around the clock endoscopist on duty in the hospital was decided upon to provide inmediate evaluation of all UGIH. The team performed 200 endoscopies, many within the first 12 hours and all of them before 24 hours of bleeding. Endoscopy was unsuccessful in 5 out of 205 attempts. The usefulness of the method was demonstrated as in 94.55% of the patients the cause of the bleeding was established. Peptic ulcers was the cause in 51...
