in the HRS group. Conclusion: despite partial V2 agonist effects, clinically significant hyponatremia did not occur in our cohort of cirrhotic patients with variceal bleeding or hepatorenal syndrome. Disclosures: The following people have nothing to disclose: Ruth Bolier, Bart van Hoek, Hein W. Verspaget, Minneke Coenraad Background: Management of bleeding gastric varices (GV) is challenging. Cyanoacrylate (CYA) injection is the recommended treatment for bleeding GV, but has significant adverse effects. Diluted CYA with lipiodal results in higher prevalence of glue embolization and undiluted CYA sometimes causes fixation of injection needle resulting in fatal outcome. Transe-sophageal endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided therapy of GV with combined coil and CYA injection has shown promising results. However, it is expensive and requires technical expertise. Combination of small amount

of undiluted CYA forming a nidus followed by large amount of lipiodal diluted CYA (UD CYA group) avoiding complications as fixation of needle and glue embolization may prove a better alternative www.selleckchem.com/products/PD-0332991.html for managing these patients. Therefore, we compared the safety, and efficacy of this new method with undiluted CYA (U CYA group) injection method. Methods: Thirty consecutive patients with bleeding GV between July, 2010 and June, 2014 were treated with CYA injection, 15 with UD CYA method and 15 with undiluted CYA (U CYA group). All patients in U CYA group had a thoracic CT scan for identifying glue embolism. Results: The GV obliteration rate was100% in UD CYA group

versus 93.3% in U CYA group. The rebleeding rate was 20% (3/15) in UD CYA group compared with 40% (6/15) in U CYA group (P=0.43). MCE One patient in U CYA group had needle fixation and resulted in fatal bleeding after forceful needle extraction even after balloon tamponade. In UD CYA group one patient had fever and none had glue embolism. Conclusions: CYA therapy using U CYA or UD CYA is effective in bleeding GV. UD CYA method had fewer rebleeds and tended to have fewer adverse events compared with U CYA injection, however these differences were not statistically significant. A larger prospective, randomized trial is required to confirm our findings. Disclosures: The following people have nothing to disclose: Virendra Singh, Rajiv R. Singh, Navneet Sharma Aim: To assess the short- and long-term outcome of patients with gastric varices (GV) after balloon-occluded retrograde trans venous obliteration (B-RTO). Methods: One hundred thirteen consecutive patients with GV treated by B-RTO from December 1994 to March 2014 were retrospectively analyzed in this study. We analyzed factors associated with technical success (defined as complete clotting of targeted gastric vari-ces as observed by computed tomography) and long term survival. Results: Overall technical success was achieved in 125 of 130 (96%) treated patients.
