Methods Twenty-three patients with gastroesophageal varices of Le,g type were enrolled to General Hospital of PLA from May 2013 to March 2015, who were treated with endoscopic tissue adhesive injection in the fundic and cardiac site in the first session, followed with endoscopic variceal ligation for esophageal varices. The clinical data, procedure complications and efficacy were retrospectively analysed. Results All procedures were successfully performed with no such evident complications as intraoperative and postoperative bleeding, embolization, mediastinal infection or death with an average hospitalization time of 15. 3±4. 09 days. Mild and moderate thoracalgia occurred in 13 patients(56. 5%), low-grade fever in 2 patients(8. 7%, recovered after symptomatic treatment for 1-2 days) . During the follow-up of 2 weeks, the rate of varices disappearance was 56. 5% (13/23) and no recurrent bleeding was observed. Six months after discharge, 10 patients underwent endoscopy again, varices disappeared in 4 and 6 with remains;the 13 others showed no hemorrhage according to follow-up call.
