Abstract

Digestive haemorrhage following supramesocolic abdominal surgery (cephalic duodenopancreatectomy, cholecystectomy, total oesogastrectomy) is a rare but serious complication, which can be life-threatening. Improvement in scanning techniques has made it possible to modify the diagnostic strategy and improve the therapeutic management of the patients. The aim of this iconographic review is to recall the causes of digestive haemorrhage following supramesocolic surgery and to illustrate the dominant role of tomodensitometry in diagnosing it and in planning and controlling the efficacy of endovascular treatment. © 2011 Éditions françaises de radiologie.
