BACKGROUND AND AIM: Endoscopic treatment is widely accepted as the first-line therapy selection for esophageal variceal bleeding. Nevertheless, endoscopic injection sclerotherapy requires experienced endoscopists and is associated with a high risk of bleeding. Our study evaluates the feasibility and efficacy of transparent cap-assisted endoscopic sclerotherapy in the management of esophageal varices. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A randomized-controlled trial was conducted in a tertiary referral center from April 2015 to May 2016...

Pancreatic cystic neoplasms (PCNs) are being increasingly detected because of rapid advances in radiologic technology and an increased imaging demand. The management of PCNs is challenging as most of these neoplasms are asymptomatic, but have malignant potential, and surgical resection has substantial perioperative morbidity and mortality. Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS)-guided ablation, as a minimally invasive treatment, has received increasing attention in the past few years. However, the resolution after EUS-guided ablative therapy still needs to be improved...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: With the development of imaging techniques, the detection rate of pancreatic cystic neoplasms (PCNs) has increased. The surgical morbidity and mortality rates of PCNs are quite high. This study is intended to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a minimally invasive treatment, EUS-guided PCN ablation with lauromacrogol. METHODS: From April 2015 to May 2016, 120 patients with PCNs were enrolled to undergo EUS. We prospectively studied 29 of the 120 patients who underwent EUS-guided ablation with lauromacrogol...

PURPOSE: To compare the clinical efficacy of pingyangmycin and lauromacrogol combined with pingyangmycin in the treatment of venous malformations (VMs). METHODS: One hundred and twenty patients with VM were randomly divided into lauromacrogol combined with pingyangmycin injection group (experimental group) and pingyangmycin injection group (control group). The appropriate interval between different injection sessions was 2 weeks. After different sessions, the changes of lesions (including size, color, texture) as well as the results of posture test and adverse effects were analyzed by using SPSS11...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical efficacy of ultrasound-guided lauromacrogol sclerotherapy for benign thyroid cysts and analyze the factors affecting the efficacy. METHODS: Ultrasound-guided lauromacrogol sclerotherapy was performed in 97 patients with a total of 99 benign thyroid cysts. The changes in cystic volume and other thyroid parameters were evaluated at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after sclerotherapy. According to changes in the cystic volume, the efficacy of sclerotherapy was defined as therapeutic failure (with a volume reduction <50%), treatment success (volume reduction ≥50%) and cure (volume reduction ≥90%)...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Current guidelines recommend injection of cyanoacrylate as first-line therapy to prevent gastric variceal rebleeding. The method still poses a risk of ectopic embolism, which possibly correlates with the volume of cyanoacrylate used. In this trial, we evaluated the short-term efficacy and safety of tissue adhesive injection combined with lauromacrogol for treating gastric varices. METHODS: Patients admitted to our hospital for variceal hemorrhage were enrolled and blindly randomized into two treatment groups: lauromacrogol group (lauromacrogol-cyanoacrylate-lauromacrogol) and lipiodol group (lipiodol-cyanoacrylate-lipiodol)...

AIM: The effects of lauromacrogol as a sclerosing agent were evaluated on rabbit thyroid tissue. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Twelve rabbits were divided into two equal groups. Intra-thyroid injections of 0.1 ml lauromacrogol were administered in the study group and 0.1 ml physiologic serum in the control group. The blood levels of free T3, free T4, TSH, postoperative adhesions and histopathologic differences of the thyroid tissues were evaluated. RESULTS: The values of serum free T3, free T4 and TSH levels did not differ significantly (p>0...

OBJECTIVES: Epistaxis is one of the most common otorhinolaryngologic emergencies representing more than 12% of conditions managed at the Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Emergency Consulting Room of our Otorhinolaryngologic Unit each year. The elevated frequency of this pathology makes it necessary to adopt the most effective and least expensive therapeutic strategy available. The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy, costs and morbidity of nasal packing (NP), which is the mainstay of treatment for anterior epistaxis in our ENT Emergency Consulting Room versus submucosal infiltrations of lauromacrogol (LA)...
