Banding of Esophageal Varices:The varix is aspirated into the banding chamber, and a trip wire dislodges a rubber band carried on the banding chamber, ligating the entrapped varix. One to three bands are applied to each varix, resulting in thrombosis. Band ligation eradicates esophageal varices with fewer treatment sessions and complications than sclerotherapy.
