Hemobilia Treated by Nasobiliary Catheterization
Blood Coagulation Factors
Lupus Erythematosus, Systemic
Hemobilia results in obstructive jaundice because blood clots may obstruct the bile duct. Decompression relieves jaundice, promotes clot lysis, and may encourage cessation of bleeding. We report a case of hemobilia that followed needle biopsy of the liver and was managed nonoperatively with an endoscopically placed nasobiliary catheter.
