Abstract

Gastrointestinal bleeding (GIB) is a serious gastroenterological complication after orthotropic liver transplantation, as well as living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). Although ectopic varices are rare causes of GIB, they may lead to life-threatening bleeding and it is difficult to diagnose them. We herein report a rare case of a jejunal variceal bleeding in a recipient five years after LDLT for primary sclerosing cholangitis with successful result by balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous obliteration (B-RTO).
