Superior mesenteric arteriography can often demonstrate actively bleeding marginal ulcers. Five cases diagnosed by angiography are reported. Pitressin infusions of the superior mesenteric artery stopped bleeding permanently in two cases, transiently in two cases, and was not attempted in one case. Pitressin infusions of the superior mesenteric artery should be attempted before surgery is performed for bleeding marginal ulcers.
