Endoscopic Band Ligation

Endoscopic band ligation (EBL) is that the selected endoscopic technique for the endoscopic treatment of acute esophageal variceal bleeding. EBL has also been wont to treat nonvariceal bleeding. Recently, Han et al determined that EBL are often a beneficial and safe equivalent technique for the management of iatrogenic gastric perforation especially in cases during which closure with endoclips is difficult. EBL is technically quieter to perform than other methods and contributes an virtuous view of the lesions under direct pressure and suction from the transparent ligation cap. EBL are often used albeit the diameter of the perforation is bigger than 10 mm or if there's a severe tangential angle. In this description, we discuss the effectiveness and security of EBL for the closure of iatrogenic gastrointestinal discontinuity. We also consider the uses and faults of EBL for the treatment of nonvariceal bleeding. Elastic band ligation was organized in the United States in 1951, and has been used for decades to treat bleeding and/or prolapsed internal hemorrhoids. In the late 1980s, Stiegmann et al proved that the results of an initial endoscopic band ligation (EBL) trial were equivalent to or preferable to those recovered with endoscopic sclerotherapy for the treatment of active bleeding, the avoidance of recurrences, and survival. In a recent case report series, Han et al have shown successful endoscopic closure using band ligation in iatrogenic gastric wall perforations in which primary endoclip closure declined.
