Summary of "Bleeding Gastric Varices Obliteration with Balloon-occluded Retrograde Transvenous Obliteration Using Sodium Tetradecyl Sulfate Foam."

Balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous obliteration (BRTO) of bleeding gastric varices (GV) is well described in the literature. Using Ethanolamine oleate as the sclerosing agent in BRTO, but it is not readily available in the United States in the desired concentrations. The authors' aim is to describe their initial experience with BRTO using sodium tetradecyl sulfate (STS) foam as an alternative sclerosing agent.
