1/20. Haematemesis and Melaena: surgical management.

    A prospective study of the surgical management of 100 consecutive patients with benign, non-variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding is presented. The manner of presentation, precipitating factors, investigations and associated medical problems are discussed. Chronic duodenal ulceration was the most common cause of haemorrhage. vagotomy and drainage with oversewing or excision of the bleeding ulcer was the surgical procedure performed in 71 of the patients in the series. The incidence of recurrent bleeding was 7%; no patient in this category required further operation. The mortality rate was 6%, and there were no deaths recorded in the patients who underwent vagotomy and drainage. The reasons for the relatively low surgical mortality are discussed.

2/20. gastric antral vascular ectasia: maintenance treatment with oestrogen-progesterone.

    gastric antral vascular ectasia ('watermelon stomach') is a rare cause of chronic gastrointestinal bleeding and various medical and surgical treatments have been described. We report a patient in whom an oestrogen-progesterone preparation successfully controlled recurrent blood loss.

3/20. angiodysplasia of cardia of stomach--a case report.

    angiodysplasia of gastrointestinal tract is still thought to be an entity of unknown aetiology. This lesion is most commonly observed in elderly patients presenting with severe and persistent iron deficiency anaemia, following occult blood loss or acute episodes of haematemesis. In the stomach antral vascular ectasia is the most common presentation. We report an autopsy case of vascular ectasia in the cardia of stomach in a young patient with clinical symptoms of anaemia as the presentation and an associated secondary hemosiderosis of liver.

4/20. gastric antral vascular ectasia.

    A case of gastric antral vascular ectasia confined to the antrum in an elderly Japanese male patient is described. The condition is a cause of blood loss and chronic iron deficiency anemia, particularly in the elderly. The clinical, endoscopic, and pathologic findings, which were contrasted with other hyperplastic or gastric vascular abnormalities, are described.

5/20. Successful treatment of two patients with gastric antral vascular ectasia 'watermelon stomach' using endoscopic Nd-YAG laser therapy.

    Two patients with gastric antral vascular ectasia--'watermelon stomach'--successfully treated with endoscopic Nd-YAG laser are described. This condition is an uncommon cause of iron deficiency anaemia due to chronic blood loss and is usually managed by antrectomy. Endoscopic therapy with Nd-YAG laser offers an effective and safe alternative to surgery particularly in the elderly poor-risk patient.

6/20. Successful control of bleeding from gastric antral vascular ectasia (watermelon stomach) by laser photocoagulation.

    We report a case of gastric antral vascular ectasia in a patient with primary biliary cirrhosis in whom chronic blood loss was a major problem. She required repeated blood transfusions that were complicated by reactions and still had persistent anaemia. She was treated with laser phototherapy in the form of quadrantic photocoagulation with a neodynium yttrium-aluminium-garnet laser. This greatly improved the endoscopic appearance of the gastric lesions and effectively controlled blood loss. She required no further transfusions. Bleeding recurred after 11 months which was controlled by further laser photocoagulation.

7/20. Watermelon stomach: an unusual cause of chronic gastrointestinal blood loss.

    Watermelon stomach, or gastric antral vascular ectasia, is an uncommon cause of gastrointestinal blood loss, which can easily be overlooked and which is eminently curable. A 76 year old woman who was repeatedly misdiagnosed as having incidental antral gastritis with occult iron deficiency is described.

8/20. Solitary gastric hamartomatous polyp and upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage: an exceptional presentation of an unusual diagnosis.

    A case of solitary gastric hamartomatous polyp, presenting as upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage, is reported. Both the entity itself, and the clinical presentation, are exceptional. The significance of the solitary gastric hamartomatous polyp and implications of its diagnosis are discussed.

9/20. gastric antral vascular ectasia (watermelon stomach)--therapeutic options.

    We have encountered five cases of chronic iron deficiency anaemia due to bleeding from gastric antral vascular ectasia (watermelon stomach). Two cases were associated with a lymphoma and in three cases there was evidence of portal hypertension. Two patients were treated conservatively by blood transfusions. The other patients required either surgery or tranexamic acid or endoscopic laser therapy to control the chronic haemorrhage.

10/20. Gastric haemorrhage in a patient with neurofibromatosis. A case report.

    A 54-year-old woman with upper gastro-intestinal haemorrhage, neurofibromatosis and an underlying schwannoma of the stomach is presented. gastroscopy and barium meal examination revealed the presence of a submucosal gastric tumour with overlying ulceration. A Billroth II gastrectomy was performed with complete excision of the tumour; histologically this was revealed as a schwannoma of undetermined biological activity.
