AIM To evaluate the efficacy and safety of endoscopic concurrent therapy in patients with esophagogastric varices. METHODS From June 2015 to July 2016, 60 patients with esophagogastric varices were divided into a control group (n = 30) and an observation group (n = 30) according to the treatment regimen used. The control group was treated by sequential therapy, and the observation group was treated by endoscopic concurrent therapy. The clinical effects, complication rate, hospitalization rate and mortality rate were compared. RESULTS The effective rate was 93.33% in the observation group and 73.33% in the control group, and there was a significant difference between them (P < 0.05). The rates of complications, hospitalization, rebleeding and mortality in the observation group were 20.00%, 23.33%, 6.67% and 10.00%, respectively, all of which were significantly lower than those in the control group (26.67%, 30.00%, 10.00% and 23.33%, respectively; P < 0.05). CONCLUSION Endoscopic concurrent therapy for esophagogastric varices is effective and safe. © The Author(s) 2017.
