The management of ectopic varices is difficult and must be performed by a multidisciplinary team approach of hepatologists, endoscopists, interventional radiologists, and surgeons. Although there are no large series on this subject, based on our experience and the literature of case reports, small series, and reviews, we present this systematic approach for any patient presenting with bleeding from possible ectopic varices (see Fig. 3).
