Introduction: Bleeding due to oesophageal varices is the most common cause of upper gastrointestinal tract haemorrhage in Gezira State, Central Sudan. Endoscopic injection sclerotherapy (EST) is a valuable therapeutic modality for the management of variceal bleeding. Other options for treatment such as variceal band ligation are either expensive or unavailable. Objectives: A retrospective study to evaluate the outcome of (EST) in the management of bleeding oesophageal varices due to portal… CONTINUE READING

Introduction : Bleeding due to oesophageal varices is the most common cause of upper gastrointestinal tract haemorrhage in Gezira State , Central Sudan .
Methods : A total of 1073 patients , during 2001–2010 , were carefully selected particularly those with bleeding oesophageal varices consequent to portal hypertension .
Objectives : A retrospective study to evaluate the outcome of ( EST ) in the management of bleeding oesophageal varices due to portal hypertension in Gezira State , the centre of a developing country , Sudan .
Methods : A total of 1073 patients , during 2001–2010 , were carefully selected particularly those with bleeding oesophageal varices consequent to portal hypertension .
The causes of portal hypertension were found to be schistosomal periportal fibrosis ( PPF ) in 1001 ( 93.3% ) patients , liver cirrhosis in 60 ( 5.5% ) mixed PPF and cirrhosis in seven ( 0.7% ) and portal vein thrombosis in five ( 0.5% ) patients .

Conclusion : This study provides evidence that endoscopic injection sclerotherapy is an important component in the management of bleeding oesophageal varices caused by hypertension .
