Varix And Angioma Of The Esophagus
Category: DISEASES OF THE ESOPHAGUS
Source: A Manual Of Peroral Endoscopy And Laryngeal Surgery
These lesions are sometimes the cause of esophageal hemorrhage, the
regurgitated blood being bright red, and alkaline in reaction, in
contradistinction to the acid coffee ground blood of gastric origin.
Esophageal varices may coexist with the common dilatation of the
venous system in which the veins of the rectum, scrotum, and legs are
most conspicuously affected. Cirrhosis and cancer of the liver may, by
interference with the portal circulation, produce dilatation of the
veins in the lower third of the esophagus. Angioma of the esophagus is
amenable to radium treatment.
