Abstract

The transjugular intrahepatic protosystemic shunt (TIPS) is a nonsurgical method with low mortality which does not interfere with subsequent liver transplantation. We describe the case of an old male patient with chronic hepatopathy who was admitted because of an episode of variceal bleeding. Due to the failure of the medical treatment and sclerotherapy, coronarian stomachic vein was embolized with a coil and a TIPS was performed during the acute episode of variceal bleeding. He evolved favorably and after a year of the procedure remains asymptomatic.
