Summary of "Comparision between portosystemic shunts and endoscopic therapy for prevention of variceal rebleeding: A systematic review and meta-analysis."

Portosystemic shunts, including surgical portosystemic shunts and transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunts (TIPS), may have benefit over endoscopic therapy (ET) for treatment of variceal bleeding in patients with cirrhotic portal hypertension; however, whether there being a survival benefit among them remains unclear. This study was to compare the effect of three above-mentioned therapies on the short-term and long-term survival in patient with cirrhosis.
