Summaries for Esophageal Varix

MalaCards based summary: Esophageal Varix, also known as esophageal varices, is related to fatty liver disease and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. An important gene associated with Esophageal Varix is SST (Somatostatin), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Response to elevated platelet cytosolic Ca2+ and Defects of contact activation system (CAS) and kallikrein/kinin system (KKS). The drugs Ethiodized oil and Ethanolamine oleate have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include liver, spleen and kidney, and related phenotypes are homeostasis/metabolism and liver/biliary system
