Abstract

The optimal management approach for secondary prophylaxis of esophageal variceal hemorrhage is an area of active investigation. Clearly, some form of intervention is mandated owing to the high risk of rebleeding, up to 80% at two years. This editorial highlights the role for decision analytic modeling as a tool to guide management strategies for the clinical problem.
