          Abstract

          Liver cirrhosis leads frequently to the development of ascites and a formation of varicose veins in the esophagus. The latter presents increased mortality risk. Recently, significant progress in laparoscopic technology enabled devascularization of the proximal stomach in a less invasive way. The results experienced by five patients are presented.
