Endoscopic sclerotherapy

Last reviewed dd mmm yyyy. Last edited dd mmm yyyy

Endoscopic sclerotherapy is presently finding a niche:

  • controlling acute variceal bleeding
  • preventing recurrent variceal bleeding
  • managing bleeds from other lesions, e.g. gastric ulcers

It must be remembered that in each of these situations, endoscopic sclerotherapy is only one part of overall management. For example, recurrent variceal bleeds may also be treated with portal-systemic shunts.
