PURPOSE: Variceal bleeding remains a life-threatening emergency. Gastric fundal varices (GV) are responsible for up to 10-15% of all variceal bleeding. Endoscopic obliterative therapy with Histoacryl is now the first-choice treatment for control of gastric variceal bleeding. Pulmonary complications after injection sclerotherapy are common and range from minor asymptomatic changes to adult respiratory distress syndrome. Based on this; we tried to assess the pulmonary changes associated with endoscopic injection sclerotherapy of gastric fundic varices using undiluted N- Butyl- Cyanoacrylate
