Abstract Background. Endoscopic sclerotherapy is an accepted treatment for bleeding esophageal varices, but it is associated with substantial local and systemic complications. Endoscopic ligation, a new form of endoscopic treatment for bleeding varices, may be safer. We compared the effectiveness and safety of the two techniques. Methods. In this randomized trial we compared endoscopic sclerotherapy and endoscopic ligation in 129 patients with cirrhosis who had proved bleeding from esophageal… 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
Endoscopic Sclerotherapy and Band Ligation in Secondary Prophylaxis of Esophageal Variceal Treatment
TLDR
Endoscopic band ligation is more effective than sclerotherapy in the eradication of esophageal varices in secondary prophylaxis of esophileal variceal eradication. Expand
The Evolving Role of Endoscopic Treatment for Bleeding Esophageal Varices
TLDR
Overall, current data demonstrate clear advantages for using ligation in preference to sclerotherapy, and ligation should therefore be considered the endoscopic treatment of choice in the treatment of esophageal varices. Expand
A Prospective Study of Endoscopic Injection Sclerotherapy and Endoscopic Variceal Ligation in the Treatment of Esophageal Varices.
TLDR
Both EIS and EVL produce excellent results, are safe, effective, feasible, and acceptable for EVB with minimum complications and obviate need for subsequent procedures in the short term. 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
Sclerotherapy versus banding in the treatment of variceal bleeding.
TLDR
Endoscopic variceal ligation is a new technique that is equally effective in the control of acute bleeding but achieves obliteration of varices in fewer treatment sessions with presumably less cost, results in a lower rebleeding rate, has fewer complications, and is associated with reduced mortality. 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
Endoscopic injection sclerotherapy vs. endoscopic variceal ligation in arresting acute variceal bleeding for patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma.
TLDR
Variceal bleeding was the main cause of mortality in the endoscopic injection sclerotherapy group, whereas in theendoscopic variceal ligation group, hepatic failure, rather than varicesal bleeding, was the major cause. Expand

TLDR
Endoscopic band ligation is the most suitable method for varices eradication, but there is a group of patients resistant to endoscopicBand ligation that is suitable and effective in order to achieve variceal eradication. 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

Course and complications of endoscopic variceal sclerotherapy: a prospective study of 50 patients.
TLDR
This study indicates that EVS is a safe and effective treatment for acute variceal hemorrhage and obliteration of esophageal varices can be achieved and that once varices are obliterated rebleeding may not occur. Expand
Distal splenorenal shunt versus endoscopic sclerotherapy in the prevention of variceal rebleeding. First stage of a randomized, controlled trial.
TLDR
Preliminary data from this trial seem to indicate that DSRS, in a subgroup of patients with good liver function and a correct portal-azygos disconnection, more effectively prevents variceal rebleeding than ES. Expand
Role of endoscopic variceal sclerotherapy in the long-term management of variceal bleeding: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
The results of this quantitative synthesis suggest that patients with bleeding esophageal varices benefit from the inclusion of repeated sclerotherapy in their long-term management regimen. Expand

TLDR
Endoscopic sclerotherapy and shunt surgery provide similar results with respect to survival, hepatic function, frequency of encephalopathy, and costs. Expand
Improved survival following injection sclerotherapy for esophageal varices: Final analysis of a controlled trial
TLDR
Survival as assessed by cumulative life analysis was significantly better in those treated by sclerotherapy and both the cumulative proportion of patients rebleeding and the total number of episodes of variceal hemorrhage were also significantly less in the scler therapy group. Expand
FAILURE OF REPEATED INJECTION SCLEROTHERAPY TO IMPROVE LONG-TERM SURVIVAL AFTER OESOPHAGEAL VARICEAL BLEEDING A Five-year Prospective Controlled Clinical Trial
TLDR
Repeated sclerotherapy failed to improve survival in this trial, although varices were eradicated and recurrent variceal bleeds were prevented with adequate follow-up. 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.

Complications of endoscopic injection sclerotherapy: a review.
TLDR
A review of sclerotherapy complications is carried out to understand their basis and to determine what measures can be taken to prevent or manage them. Expand
Sclerotherapy after first variceal hemorrhage in cirrhosis. A randomized multicenter trial.
TLDR
Sclerotherapy is recommended for patients with cirrhosis who have bleeding from esophageal varices who have suffered from encephalopathy and ascites and has no significant influence on the initial hemorrhage as judged from the duration of bleeding or of balloon tamponade, the number of blood transfusions needed, or immediate mortality.

Controlled clinical trial of injection sclerotherapy for active variceal bleeding
TLDR
In a prospective, randomized clinical trial, immediate injection sclerotherapy was compared with treatment by a combined infusion of vasopressin and nitroglycerin in 50 consecutive patients with 64 episodes of endoscopy‐proven active variceal hemorrhage. Expand
