Stent graft migration with massive hemorrhage following pancreaticoduodenectomy: A serious complication of endovascular pseudoaneurysm repair

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci. 2022 May;29(5):e41-e43. doi: 10.1002/jhbp.1116. Epub 2022 Feb 2.


Highlight Endovascular pseudoaneurysm repair with a stent graft enables aneurysm treatment and vessel preservation; however, little is known about its complications. Sano and colleagues describe a case of massive intestinal bleeding associated with stent-graft migration. They used a multidisciplinary approach with endoscopic hemostasis and endovascular embolization to overcome this unprecedented difficulty.

Keywords: hemostasis; pancreatectomy; pancreatic fistula; postoperative complication; self-expandable metallic stents.
