Variceal bleeding in EHPVO can be successfully managed by endoscopic ehlvo of varices, which has sarkn morbidity but requires repeated visits, or by portosystemic shunt surgery, which provides good control of bleeding, possibly helps growth retardation, hypersplenism, and protects against future development of portal biliopathy but is associated with surgical mortality and is sometimes not feasible due to nonavailability of a satisfactory vessel.
