What is Angiodysplasia?

Angiodysplasia is also known as Vascular ectasias. Angiodysplasia of the colon is a condition of dilated and fragile blood vessels in the colon that results in intermittent loss of blood from the gastrointestinal tract. It is a degenerative lesion of previously healthy blood vessels found most commonly in the cecum and proximal ascending colon.

Treatment and Cure of Angiodysplasia

Angiodysplasia can be detected infrequently by visual inspection of the serosal side of the bowel during laparotomy. Angiodysplasia of colonic origin has been managed by endoscopic obliteration. Heater probe and multipolar electrocoagulation probe have been more successful than monopolar electrocoagulation.

Rebleeding rates for monopolar electrocoagulation have been approximately 50%, with the transfusion requirement resembling that of patients receiving no therapy. Monopolar electrocautery can obliterate angiodysplasia; however, bleeding recurs in approximately 50% of subjects. This has been attributed to other areas of angiodysplasia.
