Endoscopic variceal ligation was performed in 20 patients with portal hypertension of varied etiology. Variceal obliteration was achieved in 18 patients (90%) while recurrence of bleeding occurred in two patients (10%). The average number of bands required was four per patient and average number of sessions required for variceal obliteration was two. We found the procedure to be cheap, safe and effective in achieving early variceal obliteration.
