Abstract

Three cases of chronic gastrointestinal bleeding are described; the Authors emphasize the important role of mesenteric arteriography in establishing site and nature of bleeding. The review of international literature shows a success rate between 41 and 73% of cases studied with this method after negativity of other diagnostic procedures.
