Both propranolol and endoscopic band ligation (EBL) are effective for prevention of variceal rebleeding. Recently several studies compared the efficacy of EBL alone and with a combination of propranolol and EBL. However, the results of recent studies showed discrepancy. This study is performed to compare the efficacy and safety of EBL alone and EBL combined with propranolol in patients without previous history of endoscopic variceal treatment.

Current guidelines recommend prophylactic treatment with propranolol or endoscopic band ligation (EBL) to prevent variceal bleeding in patients with medium or large varices. However, it is...
The aim of this study was to conduct a prospective randomized trial to compare TIPS with 8mm expanded polytetrafluoroethylene(ePTFE)-covered stents and endoscopic variceal ligation plus pr...
Background: Both endoscopic variceal ligation (EVL) and propranolol are valuable methods for secondary prophylaxis of variceal bleeding. Addition of ISMN to propranolol improves the effica...
The purpose of this study is to determine which treatment, band ligation (placing rubber bands around the hemorrhoids) or BICAP electrocoagulation (using electricity to cauterize) is safer...
To compare the efficacy and safety of Carvedilol and Propranolol in patients with cirrhosis-related esophagogastric varices after multiple endoscopic treatments for secondary prophylaxis.
Statins can modulate portal microvascular dynamics in patients with cirrhosis. We present data from a proof-of-concept study aimed at comparing combination of propranolol and atorvastatin versus propr...
Propranolol is known to reduce portal pressure by decreasing blood flow to the splanchnic circulation and the liver. However, it is unknown if propranolol improves fibrogenesis and sinusoidal remodeli...
We previously reported preliminary safety results for a new method, endoscopic detachable snare ligation (EDSL), for diverticular hemorrhage. This method does not need endoscope removal to attach a li...
In 2015, more than 13 000 people died due to the consequences of liver cirrhosis in Germany. Frequently, relevant liver fibrosis is diagnosed by non-invasive methods (e. g., ultrasound-based measu...
Colitis, a colonic inflammatory condition, showed a linkage with hepatobiliary disorders such as cirrhosis. It has been reported that both endogenous opioids and nitric oxide (NO) play critical roles ...
A widely used non-cardioselective beta-adrenergic antagonist. Propranolol has been used for MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; ARRHYTHMIA; ANGINA PECTORIS; HYPERTENSION; HYPERTHYROIDISM; MIGRAINE; PHEOCHROMOCYTOMA; and ANXIETY but adverse effects instigate replacement by newer drugs.
Fiberoptic endoscopy designed for duodenal observation and cannulation of VATER'S AMPULLA, in order to visualize the pancreatic and biliary duct system by retrograde injection of contrast media. Endoscopic (Vater) papillotomy (SPHINCTEROTOMY, ENDOSCOPIC) may be performed during this procedure.
Experimentally induced chronic injuries to the parenchymal cells in the liver to achieve a model for LIVER CIRRHOSIS.
Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.
A specialized form of transanal endoscopic surgery for microscopically controlled operations in the RECTUM.
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
