In patients aged 5 to 10 years, signs of , such as esophageal and gastric varices and hypersplenism, occur. If the patient presents in adolescence, nephromegaly is less marked, renal insufficiency may be mild to moderate, and the major symptoms are those related to portal hypertension. Diagnosis of autosomal (...) % of patients may have or ureteropelvic junction obstruction. Frequently, the kidney progressively involutes and eventually is no longer visible on ultrasonography. Development of tumors, infection, and/or hypertension is rare. Most experts recommend observation to monitor for involution. Nephrectomy may be considered for the presence of solid tissue, progressive enlargement, or rarely hypertension or a ruptured cyst that is causing pain.

706. Comparison between endoscopic sclerotherapy and band ligation for hemostasis of acute variceal bleeding. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Comparison between endoscopic sclerotherapy and band ligation for hemostasis of acute variceal bleeding. To compare band ligation (BL) with endoscopic sclerotherapy (SCL) in patients admitted to an emergency unit for esophageal variceal rupture.A prospective, randomized, single-center study without crossover was conducted. After endoscopic diagnosis of esophageal variceal rupture, patients were randomized into groups for SCL or BL treatment. Sclerotherapy was performed by ethanolamine oleate (...) intravascular injection both above and below the rupture point, with a maximum volume of 20 mL. For BL patients, banding at the rupture point was attempted, followed by ligation of all variceal tissue of the distal esophagus. Primary outcomes for both groups were initial failure of bleeding control (5 d), early re-bleeding (5 d to 6 wk), and complications, including mortality. From May 2005 to May 2007, 100 patients with variceal bleeding were enrolled in the study: 50 SCL and 50 BL patients. No differences
