Duodenal variceal bleeding is an uncommon cause of gastrointestinal bleeding. Treatment strategies are reliant on case reports and case series with new developments in interventional treatment modalities including endoscopic therapy, radiological intervention, and surgery. Endoscopic treatment includes injection sclerotherapy using various agents, banding of varices and clipping of varices. Interventional radiological procedures include Transjugular Intrahepatic porto-systemic shunt (TIPSS), and Balloon- Occluded Retrograde Transvenous Obliteration (BRTO)...

The ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy (UGFS) involves the injection of a sclerosing agent into a target vein under ultrasonographic guidance. The goal of this treatment is to harm the venous endothelium to achieve the destruction of the vein wall by a fibrosis phenomenon. In this article, we discuss indications and contraindications of UGFS. We also describe the technique, its efficacy and its complications.

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Dual red imaging (DRI) is a novel image-enhanced endoscopy technique that can increase the visibility and predict the depth of esophageal varices (EVs). The recurrence rate of EVs after endoscopic injection sclerotherapy (EIS) reportedly decreases by intravariceal injection of a sclerosant. We evaluated prospectively whether the EIS success rate was increased by DRI compared with the white light (WLI) mode. METHODS: A total of 79 EV patients were randomly divided into the DRI (n = 40) and WLI (n = 39) groups...

Endoscopic hemostatic procedures such as local injection of epinephrine are commonly used for the treatment of bleeding ulcers. Although the risks are usually considered to be minimal, there are reports describing that duodenal intramural hematomas may develop as a complication after endoscopy especially in patients susceptible to hemorrhage such as those with anticoagulants therapy or blood dyscrasia.

BACKGROUND: Congenital cystic lymphangiomas are benign malformations due to a developmental disorder of lymphatic vessels. Besides surgical excision, sclerosant therapy of these lesions by intracavitary injection of OK-432 (Picibanil®), a lyophilized mixture of group A Streptococcus pyogenes, is a common therapeutical option. For an appropriate application of OK-432, a detailed knowledge about the structure and composition of the congenital cystic lymphangioma is essential. SonoVue® is a commercially available contrast agent commonly used in sonography by intravenous and intracavitary application...

PURPOSE: To report the mid-term outcomes of percutaneous cryoablation (PCA) performed as second-line therapeutic option of venous malformations (VM). MATERIAL AND METHODS: From 2011 to 2015, PCA was offered in 24 patients (mean age: 31 years, range: 12-64) as second-line treatment for recurrence of symptoms after sclerotherapy and when resection was not possible (due to lesion location or previous failure) or refused by the patient. Adverse effects were recorded, disease-free survival (DFS) and local tissue control (LTC) rates were calculated based on symptoms and volume evolution...

Aluminum potassium sulfate and tannic acid (ALTA) sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment for internal hemorrhoids with few complications. However, it may occasionally induce complications such as rectal ulcer. The use of polyglycolic acid (PGA) sheets to seal hemorrhagic rectal ulcers is rare. We report the successful treatment of hemorrhagic rectal ulcer caused by ALTA sclerotherapy using PGA sheets. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

To the best of our knowledge, no available data with regard to changes in skeletal muscle mass for liver cirrhosis (LC) patients with esophageal varices (EVs) undergoing endoscopic therapy as a primary prophylaxis could exist. As endoscopic therapies, such as endoscopic injection sclerotherapy or endoscopic band ligation for EVs, accompany invasive procedure and patients with EVs receiving endoscopic therapies mostly rest in bed during hospitalization, clarifying these issues are clinically of importance. The purposes of this study were therefore to examine changes in skeletal muscle mass for LC patients with EVs undergoing endoscopic therapy as a primary prophylaxis and to identify pretreatment predictors which are associated with the amelioration in skeletal muscle mass...

BACKGROUND: Foam sclerotherapy (FS) is a safe and effective approach for managing patients with varicose veins and venous ulcers in lower extremities. But, recanalization of the ablated varicose veins and phlebitis are common postoperative complications that jeopardize its clinical effects. We hypothesize that ligation of the ablated varicose veins after FS will improve the outcomes of patients with varicose veins and venous ulcer. This study was aimed to evaluate the clinical efficacy of ligation after FS in comparison with FS alone for the management of patients with varicose veins and venous ulcers in lower extremities...

BACKGROUND: The standard of care for treatment of low-flow venous malformations (VMs) is percutaneous sclerotherapy. These lesions are seldom surgically resected, especially if the malformation is in an anatomically difficult location. Percutaneous sclerotherapy is safe and effective. However, the drawbacks to sclerotherapy are the need for repeated treatments and risks of skin ulceration, deep venous thrombosis, scarring/contractures, and nerve damage. Surgical resection can be difficult because of intraoperative bleeding, intraoperative lesional decompression, and difficulty in localization...

Simple hepatic cysts are common and most often asymptomatic. In symptomatic cases, hemorrhage, rupture, and infection are major complications. However, urinary tract obstruction caused by a simple hepatic cyst is rare. We treated an 82-year-old Japanese man with an infected giant hepatic cyst causing right hydronephrosis who had a past history of left nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma. The patient underwent ultrasound-guided percutaneous drainage and sclerotherapy with minocycline hydrochloride for the infected hepatic cyst...
