Abstract

Massive upper gastrointestinal bleeding from Dieulafoy’s lesion in the gastrointestinal tract is uncommon. The use of the Sengstaken-Blakemore tube in acute gastrointestinal bleeding has become less common since endoscopic sclerotherapy and banding procedures have become widely available. The successful use of a Sengstaken-Blakemore tube to control acute massive upper gastrointestinal bleeding from a Dieulafoy’s lesion in the lower oesophagus in an elderly man with severe coronary artery disease and heart failure is described.
