BACKGROUND/AIMS Endoscopic injection sclerotherapy (EIS) does not always treat advanced esophagogastric varices completely. Moreover, it may cause deterioration of gastric varices and may result in gastric hemorrhages. We would like to emphasize a combination treatment of the obliteration therapy of intramural varices by EIS and the transabdominal devascularization with splenectomy by Hassab's operation for such advanced esophagogastric varices. The purpose of this study is to develop an… CONTINUE READING
