Surgical rescue for failures of cirrhotic sclerotherapy.
Am J Surg. 1990 Jul; 160(1):117-21.AJ

Abstract

Bleeding from gastroesophageal varices remains the most devastating complication of the portal hypertensive syndrome. Endoscopic sclerotherapy has emerged as the best initial treatment for bleeding varices because surgery is obviated and survival may be improved. However, sclerotherapy will fail and surgical rescue will be required in at least a third of patients. There are two viable surgical rescue procedures: shunt surgery and liver transplantation. This paper summarizes the available data and concludes that there is a role for both procedures.
