EUS-guided angiotherapy

      EUS-guided angiotherapy is a growing concept that allows for precise delivery of intravascular therapies to afferent vessels and real-time confirmation of thrombosis.

In theory, the coil minimizes the cyanoacrylate volume necessary because the coil acts as a scaffold, and this may decrease the risk of systemic embolization. This video (Video 1, available online at www.giejournal.org) demonstrates 3 cases of GI bleeding that were successfully managed by using EUS-guided angiotherapy.
