Possibilities of roentgenendovascular interventions in massive arosive hemorrhage on background of acute destructive pancreatitis

Keywords: acute destructive pancreatitis; roentgenendovascular interventions; arrosive hemorrhage.


Objective. To estimate the efficacy of roentgenendovascular interventions in massive arosive hemorrhage in patients with an acute destructive pancreatitis.

Materials and metods. Roentgenendovascular interventions were performed in 9 patients, in whom massive arosive hemorrhage as complication of acute destructive pancreatitis have occurred.

Results. In immediate term the hemorrhage have finished in all 9 (100%) patients. On the second day in 2 patients, to whom embolization of a. hepatis propria was performed, the hemorrhage recurrence have occurred. Secondary angiography and the embolizations attemps were not effective, both women-patients died. In the patients, in whom embolization of pancreatico-duodenal and splenic arteries was done, the hemorrhage did not recurred. Thus, we obtained good results - of 9 patients 7 (77.8%) were curated, not depending on their status severity and unfavorable prognosis.

Conclusion. Following a tactics adduced in treatment of hemorrhage in acute destructive pancreatitis it have demonstrated a high efficacy, especially in superselective embolization with the hemorrhage origin revealing.
