Endoscopic Band Ligation (EBL) Versus Propranolol for Primary Prophylaxis of Variceal Bleeding

2010-07-15 17:00:00 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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 unclear which treatment is more useful in regard to prevention of variceal bleeding as well as safety. In addition, the efficacy and safety of the combination of EBL and propranolol is not still defined. This study is performed to compare the efficacy and safety of EBL, propranolol, and EBL combined with propranolol in patients with medium or large varices.

Endoscopic Band Ligation (EBL) Versus Endoscopic Band Ligation and Propranolol for the Prevention of Variceal Rebleeding

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 ...

8mm-TIPS Versus Endoscopic Variceal Ligation (EVL) Plus Propranolol for Prevention of Variceal Rebleeding

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...

Endoscopic Variceal Ligation (EVL)+ Drugs Versus Endoscopic Variceal Ligation (EVL) Alone For Secondary Prophylaxis

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...

Comparison Between Two Endoscopic Treatments of Bleeding Internal Hemorrhoids:Band Ligation and Electrocoagulation Probe

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...

Efficacy of Lidocaine Gel Enema After Endoscopic Hemorrhoid Band Ligation for Relief of Post Procedural Pain

This is a prospective study to assess the utility of Lidocaine Hydrochloride 2% gel enema (Hi-Tech Pharmacal Co., Inc.) in reducing post-procedural pain after endoscopic band ligation of i...

Long-term recurrent bleeding risk after endoscopic therapy for definitive colonic diverticular bleeding: band ligation versus clipping.

Very few prospective studies with over 100 samples have evaluated the long-term outcomes of endoscopic therapy for colonic diverticular bleeding (CDB). This study sought to elucidate the recurrent ble...

Rectal mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma treated by endoscopic submucosal resection with band ligation.

Endoscopic band ligation versus endoscopic hemoclip placement for Dieulafoy's lesion: a meta-analysis.

Dieulafoy lesions (DL) are abnormally large arterial lesions that fail to decrease in size as they emerge from the submucosa to the mucosal surface. Endoscopic treatment has become the mainstay of the...

Clinical Outcomes of Patients with Small Rectal Neuroendocrine Tumors Treated Using Endoscopic Submucosal Resection with a Ligation Device.

The therapeutic strategies for small rectal neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) have not been standardized. We examined the efficacy and safety of endoscopic submucosal resection with a ligation device (ESMR...

Low Fibrinogen Levels Are Associated with Bleeding After Varices Ligation in Thrombocytopenic Cirrhotic Patients.

EVBL is a procedure frequently performed in cirrhotic patients for primary prophylaxis of bleeding. Patients with cirrhosis display various degrees of alteration of common coagulation parameters, and ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

An overuse injury causing lateral knee pain that results from repetitive friction of the iliotibial band over the lateral femoral epicondyle.
