A randomized control trial of bi-monthly versus bi-weekly endoscopic variceal ligation of esophageal varices


, : A randomized control trial of bi-monthly versus bi-weekly endoscopic variceal ligation of esophageal varices. American Journal of Gastroenterology 100(9): 2005-2009

Endoscopic variceal ligation (EVL) is a safe and simple procedure now being used on a widening scale. Yet most patients who undergo endoscopic treatment for esophageal varices eventually require additional treatment for recurrent varices.

The functionalization of an organic polyethersulfone membrane (PES) was performed by alternating deposition of poly(allylamine hydrochloride) (PAH) and poly(sodium 4-styrene sulfonate) (PSS), leading to the formation of a polyelectrolyte multilaye...

The standard ACTH stimul...

Indomethacin (0.5 mg/100 g b.w./day) and chloramphenicol (0.5 mg or 15 mg/100 g b.w./day) were tested for their anti-inflammatory effects on 7th day carrageenan-induced granuloma formation. Neither of the drugs modified granuloma or pouch wall wei...
