The article presents information on abstracts related to liver. In a abstract endoscopic ligation is compared with propranolol and combined Isosorbide Mononitrates (ISMN) and propranolol to prevent recurrent variceal bleeding. After an attack of bleeding from oesophageal varices, patients are at high risk of recurrent bleeding and death. The researchers have compared endoscopic ligation and medical therapy with propranolol ISMN. The researchers randomly assigned 181 patients with cirrhosis who were hospitalized with oesophageal variceal bleeding to receive treatment with endoscopic ligation (61 patients), propranolol (60 patients), and combined ISMN + propranolol (60 patients) during the study period to prevent rebleeding. The primary end points were recurrent bleeding, complications, and death.
