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
