Two recent reports confirmed the applicability of AIMS65 in acute upper GI bleeding patients, including bleeding of variceal
and non-variceal origin9,12.
Comparison between endoscopic sclerotherapy and band ligation for hemostasis of acute variceal
The consequences of portal hypertension, such as variceal
bleeding, are important factors in the morbidity and mortality of patients with cirrhosis (5,6).
Gastroscopy findings revealed acute esophageal variceal
hemorrhage and he underwent sclerotherapy followed by a slow infusion (100 [micro]g/h) of intravenous octreotide.
Because of accessibility issues and the invasiveness of endoscopic therapy, endovascular treatments such as TIPS, BRTO, and PTO have been applied for duodenal variceal
Neither the development of SBP nor the origin (esophageal or gastric) of variceal
bleeding influenced the development of OHE.
Also visualized was a variceal
