Gene context of Sclerotherapy

  • Reversible ischaemic neurological deficit after sclerotherapy of varicose veins [28].
  • Early administration of somatostatin and efficacy of sclerotherapy in acute oesophageal variceal bleeds: the European Acute Bleeding Oesophageal Variceal Episodes (ABOVE) randomised trial [29].
  • BACKGROUND--Endoscopic sclerotherapy (EST) is an established method for controlling and preventing bleeding from oesophageal varices [30].
  • During a 3-year period (June 1981-July 1984), 70 patients who presented with an endoscopically proven variceal bleed were randomized to receive either fiberoptic injection sclerotherapy (FIS, 36 patients) or a rigid scope technique (RIS, 34 patients), using ethanolamine oleate as the sclerosing agent [31].
  • Endoscopic injection sclerotherapy vs. endoscopic variceal ligation in arresting acute variceal bleeding for patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma [32].
