Journal of Emergencies, Trauma and Shock, 06/12/2012
Tchantchaleishvili1 V et al. – The authors present (to the best of the knowledge) the first reported case of duodenal diverticular bleeding, causing abdominal compartment syndrome. Albeit a rare event, duodenal diverticular bleeding should be included in the differential diagnosis of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. As with the case, a multidisciplinary approach to managing such patients is crucial.
