To determine the efficacy of endoscopic variceal sclerotherapy (EVS) and ligation (EVL) in the management of esophageal variceal bleeding, 134 cirrhotic patients were randomized to receive either treatment. The clinical and endoscopic characteristics were similar in both groups. Active bleeding was controlled with ligation (20 of 20) as efficiently as with sclerotherapy (14 of 16). Elective sclerotherapy consumed less time than ligation (7.9 ± 1.8 minutes vs 11.5 ± 2.7 minutes, P < 0.001), but… Expand
Endoscopic ligation vs. sclerotherapy in adults with extrahepatic portal venous obstruction: a prospective randomized study.
TLDR
Variceal band ligation is superior to sclerotherapy, because it is less costly and achievesvariceal eradication more quickly, with lower relative frequencies of recurrent variceal bleeding and complications. Expand
Variceal ligation compared with endoscopic sclerotherapy for variceal hemorrhage: prospective randomized trial.
TLDR
Variceal ligation was superior to sclerotherapy in terms of the rate of recurrent bleeding and the occurrence of complications but worse with respect to recurrence of varices and the evolution of portal hypertensive gastropathy. Expand
Endoscopic ligation compared with sclerotherapy for bleeding esophageal varices in children with extrahepatic portal venous obstruction
TLDR
Variceal band ligation in children is a safe and effective technique that achieves variceal eradication more quickly, with a lower rebleeding rate and fewer complications compared with sclerotherapy. Expand
Prospective randomized trial of endoscopic sclerotherapy versus variceal band ligation for esophageal varices: influence on gastropathy, gastric varices and variceal recurrence.
TLDR
Endoscopic variceal ligation had a significantly lower rate of development of portal gastropathy and rebleeding, and while both techniques influenced gastric varices equally, there was significantly higher esophageal varices recurrence after endoscopic varices ligation than sclerotherapy. Expand
The additive effect of sclerotherapy to patients receiving repeated endoscopic variceal ligation: A prospective, randomized trial
TLDR
The addition of low‐dose sclerotherapy following repeated banding ligations proved safe and effective in the prevention of recurrence of esophageal varices and rebleeding. Expand
Endoscopic variceal ligation compared with endoscopic injection sclerotherapy for treatment of esophageal variceal hemorrhage: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
The meta-analysis has found that EVL is better than EIS in terms of the lower rates of rebleeding, complications, and the higher rate of variceal eradication, and is the first choice for esophagealvariceal bleeding. Expand
Recurrence of esophageal varices following endoscopic treatment and its impact on rebleeding: comparison of sclerotherapy and ligation.
TLDR
Early recurrence and multiple recurrence of esophageal varices are more likely in patients undergoing endoscopic ligation, compared to sclerotherapy; however, the recurrence did not lead to a higher risk of rebleeding or require more endoscopic treatment. Expand
Endoscopic variceal ligation is superior to combined ligation and sclerotherapy for esophageal varices: A multicenter prospective randomized trial
TLDR
The results show that sclerotherapy combined with ligation offers no benefit over ligation alone, and the higher complication rate with combination therapy does not warrant this approach. Expand
Sclerotherapy plus ligation versus ligation for the treatment of esophageal varices: a prospective randomized study.
TLDR
Endoscopic scleroligation is superior to endoscopic variceal ligation in preventingvariceal recurrence and survival and both methods were equally effective in achieving complete eradication of esophageal varices. Expand
Endoscopic sclerotherapy versus variceal ligation in the long-term management of patients with cirrhosis after variceal bleeding. A prospective randomized study.
TLDR
Variceal ligation is better than sclerotherapy in the long-term management of patients with cirrhosis after variceal haemorrhage which was initially controlled with scler Therapy. Expand

Randomised trial of variceal banding ligation versus injection sclerotherapy for bleeding oesophageal varices
TLDR
Variceal banding ligation is a safe and effective technique, which obliterates varices more quickly and with a lower rebleeding rate than injection sclerotherapy. Expand
Endoscopic sclerotherapy as compared with endoscopic ligation for bleeding esophagal varices
TLDR
This randomized trial compared endoscopic sclerotherapy and endoscopic ligation in 129 patients with cirrhosis who had proved bleeding from esophageal varices and determined the incidence of complications and recurrences of bleeding, the number of treatments needed to eradicate varices, and survival. Expand
Endoscopic Ligation Compared with Sclerotherapy for the Treatment of Bleeding Esophageal Varices
TLDR
A second randomized, controlled trial comparing endoscopic ligation and sclerotherapy for the treatment of esophageal varices is described, suggesting that variceal ligation may not only decrease complications but also improve survival compared with endoscopic scler therapy. Expand
Endoscopic esophageal varix ligation: preliminary clinical experience.
TLDR
Preliminary data indicate that EVL is a safe and effective treatment for esophageal varices, and endoscopic observation suggested that varices were obliterated by a process of mechanical strangulation, ischemia, superficial ulceration, and scar formation. Expand
Octreotide infusion or emergency sclerotherapy for variceal haemorrhage
TLDR
It is concluded that octreotide infusion and emergency sclerotherapy are equally effective in controlling variceal haemorrhage. Expand
Use of propranolol to reduce the rebleeding rate during injection sclerotherapy prior to variceal obliteration
TLDR
Propranolol precipitated encephalopathy in one patient and complicated resuscitation following bleeding in a second, and as there was no evidence in this study that use of the drug reduced the frequency or severity of the variceal bleeding, its administration cannot be recommended during the period prior to obliteration of varices by sclerotherapy. Expand
Follow‐up of Patients after Variceal Eradication: A Comparison of Patients with Cirrhosis, Noncirrhotic Portal Fibrosis, and Extrahepatic Obstruction
TLDR
It can be concluded that variceal recurrence and rebleeding are not major problems after sclerotherapy and Sclerotherapy probably helps in spontaneous improvement of the liver status of surviving cirrhosis and reduces long-term morbidity and mortality of patients with NCPF and EHO. Expand
A prospective, randomized controlled trial of chronic esophageal variceal sclerotherapy
TLDR
Esophageal variceal sclerotherapy decreased rebleeding as evidenced by a decrease in the mean bleeding risk factor, transfusion requirement and by an increase in bleeding free interval; differences between the treated and control groups in these parameters were especially significant after variceAL obliteration. Expand
Injection sclerotherapy for oesophageal varices: a prospective randomised trial of different treatment schedules.
TLDR
Mucosal ulceration during the period required for obliteration was observed at endoscopy more frequently in the weekly treated patients but was not associated with a greater frequency of postinjection pain, dysphagia or of long term stricture formation. Expand
Does elective sclerotherapy improve the efficacy of long‐term propranolol for prevention of recurrent bleeding in patients with severe cirrhosis? A prospective multicenter, randomized trial
TLDR
In conclusion, elective sclerotherapy does not significantly decrease the rate of recurrent bleeding or death in severely cirrhotic patients who are treated with propranolol and who mainly abstain from drinking alcohol. Expand
