Abstract

Background & Aims: In a recent randomized international clinical trial (RCT) in high-risk cirrhotic patients with acute variceal bleeding, the early use of transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) was associated with marked and significant reductions in both treatment failure and mortality. The aim of this study was to confirm these results in clinical practice in the same centers of the RCT study. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed patients admitted for acute variceal bleeding and high risk of treatment failure (Child C
