Abstract

The technique of injection sclerotherapy (IS) of esophageal varices using 2% soduim tetradecyl sulfate (TSS) was developed by clearing up the mechanism for its hemostasis. In clinical trials, 36 of 37 bleeding cases controlled by our method. But we experienced some complications in 51 of 121 treated with IS. Ulcers was formed in 46 patients and as one of the major complication, the perforation of esophagus was experienced in one patient. The essential of its technique is to pool the sclerosant in the collaterals of esophageal varices.
