Sclerotherapy for bleeding oesophageal varices--a fatal complication. A case report.

Abstract

Although injection sclerotherapy for the control of bleeding varices is considered a relatively safe procedure, major complications can occur. A case is presented in which delayed perforation of the oesophagus due to ulceration led to a fatal outcome. The technique used and complications of the procedure are briefly discussed.
