Daniel Need He underwent surgery because he was about to burst the varicose veins in the esophagus suffered by the driver of “Windowing”in accordance with Where is Chapoy?owner of this program.
The entertainment journalist announced that the state of health of Daniel Bisogno It is delicate, since the intervention to which she was submitted consisted of ligating and reinforcing the varices that she has in the esophagus.
According to an article in Scielo, which was published in the Spanish Journal of Digestive Diseases, esophageal varices are dilated veins located in the final part of the esophagus, a conduit between the throat and the stomach. Through them circulates the blood that under normal conditions would pass through the liver.
These develop in patients with liver disease, so the liver of the patients is not in good condition.
The Scielo article also establishes that the main problem of this condition It is the rupture of the varicose veins, which is a serious complication.
According to the Mayo Clinic website, they develop when the normal blood flow to the liver is blocked by a clot or fibrous tissue.
Blood flow is reversed upon encountering scar tissue in the liver, increasing pressure in the Portal vein, causing portal hypertension.
Hypertension forces the blood to seek other routes, such as those located in the lowest part of the esophagus. Thrombosis in the portal vein or splenic vein can cause this type of condition.
Any chronic liver disease provokes the formation of esophageal varices. When they break, they cause bleeding that endangers the lives of patients.
This type of condition has no symptoms unless there is hemorrhage, in which case there is bloody vomit, dark or bloody stools, and fainting from blood loss.
In the most serious cases, the patient can lose consciousness and even die due to blood loss.
Medical specialists may suspect the presence of esophageal varices when a patient with liver disease has yellowing of the skin or jaundice, easy bruising or bleeding, and fluid accumulation in the abdomen.
Since it is not a condition with obvious symptoms, for its detection it is necessary to perform a digestive endoscopy, which also allows determining its size.
