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.

We here present a case involving a complicated type of gastric fundal varices treated by balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous obliteration. A newly developed 1.8-Fr tip coaxial microballoon cathete...
Both balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous obliteration (BRTO) and transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) are considered effective treatments for gastric variceal bleeding (GVB). In th...
Gastric varices occur in one-third of patients with portal hypertension. Bleeding from gastric varices remains a significant cause of death. Currently the first-line of treatment for gastric varices i...
Research is continuous for noninvasive tools for the prediction of portal hypertension than upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. Serum sCD163 correlates with hepatic venous pressure gradient, aiding in t...
Ectopic varices include all varices except esophageal or gastric varices and comprise large portosystemic venous collaterals that occur anywhere in the abdomen. Ectopic varices are relatively rare; ho...
The purpose of this study is to study the efficacy of endoscopic cyanoacrylate injection versus balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous obliteration in the prevention of gastric variceal b...
The purpose of this study is to study the efficacy of endoscopic cyanoacrylate injection versus balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous obliteration in the management of acute gastric blee...

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...
Bleeding from gastroesophageal varices is one of the major complications of cirrhosis. After successful treatment of the acute bleeding episode, patients who do not receive follow-up treat...
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.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
