Abstract
Lower gastrointestinal bleeding (LGIB) is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with cirrhosis. LGIB increases with age. LGIB occurrence corresponds to the incidence of specific gastrointestinal diseases such as diverticulosis coli, vascular ectasia, ischemic colitis, inflammatory diseases of the colon, colonic neoplasms and portal hypertensive colopathy, the incidence of co-morbid diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus and malignancy, the use of polypharmacy with agents such as anticoagulants and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents and the presence of associated coagulopathy. The evaluation of patients is adjusted to the rate and severity of hemorrhage and the clinical status of the patient and may be complicated by the presence of visual, auditory and cognitive impairment due to age and disease. Bleeding may be chronic and mild or severe and life threatening, requiring endoscopic, radiologic or surgical intervention.
