A leading question among liver specialists during the past decade had been the relative value of the DSRS and scleropathy in preventing recurrent variceal
Portal hypertension is one of the serious complications of cirrhosis of liver leading to unwanted life-threatening variceal
Factors that determine the risk of variceal

The incidence rates of esophageal fundus variceal
Portal hypertension is largely responsible for events of hepatic decompensation including variceal
