2016 Jun;83(6):1164-72 EUS-guided treatment of gastric fundal varices with combined injection of coils and cyanoacrylate glue: a large U.S. experience over 6 years (with video). 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 EUS has also been used to monitor the completeness of GV obturation after glue injection. Endoscopic cyanoacrylate (glue) injection of fundal varices may result in life-threatening embolic adverse events through spontaneous gastro -, Gastroenterology. Kaplan–Meier curve to estimate recurrence…, Kaplan–Meier curve to estimate recurrence of gastric varices after eradication of gastric varices…, NLM The present article serves to review the endoscopic, endosonographic, and interventional radiological techniques used to treat GV and their clinical applications. Endoscopic ultrasound revealed the pseudocyst in the tail and the pseudoaneurysm in it ( Fig. A reflux of the glue into the feeding vessel was observed and we made sure that the neck of the pseudoaneurysm completely blocked ( Fig. 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]. Recurrent bleeding and recurrence of varices after complete obliteration however are not infrequent and continued surveillance is advisable. Kaplan–Meier curve to estimate recurrence of gastric varices after eradication of gastric varices with ECGI alone.

Eradication of GV was achieved in 92% of patients but recurrent varices were found in 44% during a median follow up period of 33 months. BRTO and balloon-occluded endoscopic injection sclerotherapy have shown good results for prophylaxis of high risk fundal variceal bleed.31 32 In a prospective trial, Hong et al showed that the therapeutic efficacies of glue and BRTO for the treatment of active gastric variceal haemorrhage and/or high-risk GV appeared to be similar.
