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

Nonoperative repair of occluded vessels, ducts, or valves by insertion of a balloon catheter. It is used, among other things, to treat varices, torn retinas, renal and biliary calculi, gastric, bronchial and rectal stenoses, and heart valves, and includes catheterization with Fogarty and Foley catheters.

Chemical agents injected into blood vessels and lymphatic sinuses to shrink or cause localized THROMBOSIS; FIBROSIS, and obliteration of the vessels. This treatment is applied in a number of conditions such as VARICOSE VEINS; HEMORRHOIDS; GASTRIC VARICES; ESOPHAGEAL VARICES; PEPTIC ULCER HEMORRHAGE.
Treatment of varicose veins, hemorrhoids, gastric and esophageal varices, and peptic ulcer hemorrhage by injection or infusion of chemical agents which cause localized thrombosis and eventual fibrosis and obliteration of the vessels.
An inflatable device implanted in the stomach as an adjunct to therapy of morbid obesity. Specific types include the silicone Garren-Edwards Gastric Bubble (GEGB), approved by the FDA in 1985, and the Ballobes Balloon.
The authors describe here the use of foam sclerotherapy under C-arm computed tomography (CT) guidance for the treatment of gastric varices via balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous obliteration in s...
Aim: Although endoscopic injection of cyanoacrylate (CA) is the only effective method for treating isolated fundal gastric variceal bleeding, the rebleeding rate is relatively high. This study inve...

PURPOSES: The purpose of our study was to evaluate the efficacy of balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous obliteration (B-RTO) in patients after living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). METHODS: Fi...
The purpose of this study was to assess whether endoscopic sclerotherapy with Fibrin Sealant was superior to ligature, with or without Polidocanol, in achieving hemostasis in bleeding esop...
The recent practice guideline recommends endoscopic injection of cyanoacrylate (GVO) is the preferred method to treat acute gastric variceal bleeding. The rebleeding rate remains high foll...
To demonstrate, during a prospective randomized medico-economic study, in morbidly obese patients (BMI > 45 kg/m²) selected for a laparoscopic gastric by-pass that, in comparison to usu...
