Abstract

In combined therapy with endoscopic injection sclerotherapy and endoscopic variceal ligation (EISL), the two procedures are performed simultaneously. At our hospital, EISL is performed as the first-line treatment for elective and prophylactic cases of esophageal varices. In this chapter, we introduce the EISL technique and clinical results.
