Bleeding from ruptured esophageal varices is a fatal complication in patients with portal hypertension. Early rebleeding occurs frequently in the first few weeks after ligation. Several factors were identified to be associated with the occurrence of variceal rebleeding. The aim of our study is to explore the predictors of rebleeding in our cirrhotic patient of Mohamed VI university hospital in Marrakech to improve the management of decompensated cirrhotic patients and therefore reduce morbidity and mortality related to re-bleeding.
