Summaries for Esophageal Varix

About this section
MalaCards based summary: Esophageal Varix, also known as esophageal varices, is related to portal hypertension and alcoholic liver cirrhosis. An important gene associated with Esophageal Varix is SST (somatostatin), and among its related pathways are Selenium Pathway and FOXA2 and FOXA3 transcription factor networks. The compounds amphetamine and gelofusine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include liver, and related mouse phenotypes are digestive/alimentary and normal.
