J Chin Med Assoc. Recurrent bleeding and recurrence of varices after complete obliteration however are not infrequent and continued surveillance is advisable. MATERIALS AND METHODS . glue injection therapy of GVs,the next therapeutic option is placement of transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) to reduce portal hypertension and indirectly halt the bleeding [5]. TIPSS was not feasible due to portal vein thrombosis and balloon retrograde transvenous obliteration (BRTO) was not possible due to absence of a spontaneous suitable shunt. Endoscopic glue-injection therapy is not without risk as is associated with distal systemic thromboembolic events, such as pulmonary embolism (pulmonary vessels), acute kidney injury,14 (renal vessels) as well as obliteration of splenic or portal vein; the … Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) showed a large gastric varix with artefacts of the previously injected glue.

EUS-guided coil application was done under endosonographic guidance. Patients and methodsSix patients (median age 36.7, range: 19–60, M: F=5:1) with splenic artery pseudoaneur-ysm who had failed angiographic embolization underwent EUS-guided transgastric injection of coil and glue injection Gastroenterol Clin North Am. Despite the endoscopic glue injected earlier, this varix was largely patent. Mixture of 1 mL glue with 3 mL lipiodol was injected ( Fig. coil injection, glue obliteration, or combined coil and glue injection) techniques have been developed to offer an alternative treatment and improve patient outcome.

In addition, cyanoacrylate glue injection was given in 15 patients. Endoscopic injection of cyanoacrylate glue versus other endoscopic procedures for acute bleeding gastric varices in people with portal hypertension. Among the endoscopic treatment options, endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided glue and/or coil injection is a novel approach, but its role in the treatment of gastric varices is … A 57 year old man with alcoholic cirrhosis had a massive upper GI bleed 3 months ago whilst in Scotland (BP 67/45, Hb 5.7 g/dl, platelets 38). The worldwide standard of care for the treatment of IGVs is a variant of sclerotherapy that uses a glue injection in place of a sclerosant. AbstractBackground. Histoacryl glue (N-Butyl-2- cyanoacrylate) injection of gastric varices. However, cyanoacrylate injection is associated with re-bleed in 25% to 50% of patients. 3). 2013 Jul-Aug;19(4):152-9. doi: 10.4103/1319-3767.114508. Presented with upper gastrointestinal bleeding. After identification of target GV for treatment, the glue was injected using one to 2 mL of 2-octyl CYA or histoacryl with or without lipiodol (1:1 mixture). Olmos JI, Oleas R, Alcívar JA, Baquerizo-Burgos J, Robles-Medranda C. Endosc Int Open. doi: 10.1055/a-0915-9532. Variceal injection is performed with a 23-gauge disposable sclerotherapy needle. To perform this treatment safely and effectively, the Histoacryl should be diluted with 5% Lipiodol (1:1) to lengthen the cyanoacrylate polymer and allow fluoroscopic monitoring.
