Liver Cirrhosis

My dad had an episode of hematosis and is recently diagnosed with Fundal Varices, Splenomegaly. To stop hematosis we had glue treatment ((through endoscopy 2ml) as advised by Gastro. But after a month, he vomitted blood again and another glue session (through endoscopy 3ml) . The doctor advised that if he encounters another bleeding we could cosider TIPS as an option. However, there was no treatment/medication on the root cause which is on Liver and Spleen. Kindly advise whether the treatment is in going correct direction
