PONIACHIK T, Jaime; BERGER F, Zoltán  e  MANUGUIAN G, Araxi. Endoscopic band ligation, for gastric antral vascular ectasia: Report of two cases. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2012, vol.140, n.3, pp.364-367. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872012000300013.

Gastric antral vascular ectasia is an uncommon cause of chronic anemia, occasionally associated with cirrhosis. The most accepted therapy is argon plasma coagulation (APC), however there are refractory cases. We report two females with cirrhosis, aged 60 and 72 years, in whom management with APC was insufficient and in whom the need for hospital admissions and transfusions were reduced using the technique of endoscopic band ligation.

Palavras-chave : Argon plasma coagulation; Gastric antral vascular ectasia; Gastrointestinal hemorrhage.
