Comparison of 24-hours Versus 72-hours of Octreotide Infusion in Preventing Early Rebleed From Esophageal Varices
This study evaluates the safety and efficacy of 24-hour vs 72-hour octreotide infusion after variceal banding in cirrhotic patients with bleeding esophageal varices.Austin, TexasStart: September 2018
Hepatic Venous Pressure Gradient-guided Versus Standard Beta-blocker Therapy in Primary Prevention of Variceal Bleeding
Study hypothesis: Hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG)-directed primary prophylaxis with nonselective beta-blocker therapy (NSBB) leads to a reduction in first variceal bleeding episodes and is cost-effective in the long term. Study design: A multi-center randomized controlled study comparing nonselective beta-blocker therapy guided by the hemodynamic response as determined by the difference in HVPG before and after starting oral NSBB therapy, to standard heart rate-guided NSBB therapy in patients with esophageal varices due to liver cirrhosis without a history of esophageal variceal hemorrhage. Primary study parameters/outcome of the study: First variceal bleeding episodes occurring within the first two years. Secondary study parameters/outcome of the study: Mortality Occurrence of other cirrhosis-related complications Occurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma Costs of treatments Adverse effectsAntwerpenStart: September 2012
Primary Prevention of Patients With Hepatocellular Carcinoma and Concomitant Esophageal Varices
