  • Look Inside

 Autopsies and histopathological studies were performed in 12 patients with esophageal varices treated by sclerotherapy using 5% ethanolamine oleate, and the following results were obtained.

 (1) Esophageal varices were eradicated completely when scierosant was injected suffciently into the varices of the submucosal layer. In cases followed up for a long time, however, new varices developed in the proper mucosal layer even if those of the submucosal layer had diappeared.

 (2) Paravasal injection of 5% ethanolamine oleate caused deep ulcers (Ul-Ⅲ~Ⅳ) from which bleeding occurred occasionally. Ulcers caused by 5% ethanolamine oleate were more extensive and exhibited much more inflammatory cell-infiltration than ordinary esophageal ulcers.
