PMID:  6966834     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Transabdominal esophageal mucosal transection with devascularization, a direct operation for varices, has been done upon 63 patients with marked esophageal varices that had bled or had a potential bleeding hazard. As of May 1978, 55 of the 63 patients are alive, and the over-all results appear to be satisfactory.
