N-butyl-cyanoacrylate injection is recommended in bleeding/recently bled gastric varices. The study validates of EUS-guided treatment of gastric varices and strongly suggests that dual injection of glue and coils is a better approach than coil injection alone. Injection through the varix was performed by using EUS guidance and a 22 G FNA needle (EchoSense, Cook Endoscopy, Bloomington, IN) or a combination of EUS and direct endoscopic injection. Glue injection is usually done in retroflexed view. Due to the large size of varix, two coils were placed followed by injection of 1 ml glue + 1 ml lipiodol combination. Keywords: In addition, cyanoacrylate glue injection was given in 15 patients. A single coil was placed in 7, two coils in each of 13 patients, three in 5, four in 3, five in one, and 6 coils in one patient. In this study, we investigated the glue extrusion after endoscopic NBC injection for gastric variceal bleeding and evaluated the long-term efficacy and safety of this therapy to define its role in initial treatment. 2019 Sep;7(9):E1061-E1063.

On-label coils made specifically for EUS, as well as ready-made glues, will only help these techniques to become more widespread. How is the glue injection performed? for the treatment of acute gastrointestinal bleeding. Background: There have been numerous reports of glue embolization after endoscopic cyanoacrylate (CYA) glue treatment of gastric fundal varices (GFV), with some cases fatal. Recurrent bleeding and recurrence of varices after complete obliteration however are not infrequent and continued surveillance is advisable. BRTO and balloon-occluded endoscopic injection sclerotherapy have shown good results for prophylaxis of high risk fundal variceal bleed.31 32 In a prospective trial, Hong et al showed that the therapeutic efficacies of glue and BRTO for the treatment of active gastric variceal haemorrhage and/or high-risk GV appeared to be similar.
