Abstract

Two Japanese women with a solitary gastric varix were successfully and easily treated by obliterating the gastro-renal shunt with a balloon catheter in a transjugular venous approach without any major complications. The transjugular obliteration was thus found to be a bloodless and useful method for the treatment of a solitary gastric varix with a gastro-renal shunt.
