The authors have been performing endoscopic treatment using a detachable snare in combination with sclerotherapy to treat solitary gastric varices. This chapter reports on the effectiveness of this treatment with respect to gastric varices through a discussion of the applications of endoscopic variceal ligations (EVLs) using a detachable snare and simultaneous endoscopic injection sclerotherapy and ligation (EISL), procedures, treatment performance, and prognosis.
