Abstract

We report a successful treatment with coil embolisation of an intercostal artery for ulcer bleeding in a gastric tube in a 70-year-old man who underwent a total oesophagectomy and gastric tube reconstruction for oesophageal cancer. This case teaches us to search aberrant feeding vessels when active bleeding is suspected in reconstructed gastric tube in the patient with oesophagectomy and oesophagogastrostomy.
