A study17 compared sclerotherapy and band ligation and reached the conclusion that: (i) Endoscopic sclerotherapy and EVL were equally effective in controlling acute bleed; (ii) endoscopic ligation achieved variceal obliteration faster and in fewer treatment sessions; (iii) endoscopic variceal ligation had a significantly lower rate of development of portal gastropathy and re-bleeding, (iv) while both techniques influenced gastric varices equally, there was significantly higher oesophageal variceal recurrence after EVL than sclerotherapy.
