Endoscopic treatment of gastroesophageal varices in young infants with cyanoacrylate glue: a pilot study.


BACKGROUND:In children, endoscopic sclerotherapy and variceal ligation (EVL) are the most used techniques for the treatment of gastroesophageal variceal bleeding (VB). However, these techniques achieve poor results in cases of gastric variceal bleeding, and EVL is not applicable in young infants. OBJECTIVE:Our purpose was to evaluate the feasibility, efficacy, and safety of cyanoacrylate glue injection for the treatment of gastroesophageal varices in young infants. DESIGN:Single-center prospective study. PATIENTS:From 2001 to 2005, 8 young infants (
