Compared to conventional endoscopic injection sclerotherapy, EVL has a lower rebleeding rate, fewer complications and can achieve faster variceal obliteration. Disadvantages of EVL include overtube trauma and possibly longer procedure time. However, recent development of newer devices such as the multiple banding ligator may overcome these… CONTINUE READING
