Objective: Sugiura modified procedure and sclerotheraphy. Type of study: Descriptive, bi-analytical, observing, lengthwise. Material and methods: A total of 122 patients were operated on following a scheduled for hemorrhagic portal hypertension (HPH), for which Sugiura modified procedure was applied, plus sclerotherapy for a period of 10 years, with a follow-up of 3 years. Results: A total of 122 patients with HPH were operated on, 39 (31.9%) female and 83 (68.1%) male, with a range between 20 and 65 years of age (average 43.3 years). These patients were classified as child-A 55 (45.1%) and child-B 57 (54.9%). Etiology of HPH was syndrome of Budd-Chiari in one (1.2%), thrombosis of porta in three (2.4%), viral hepatitis in 28 (22.9%), and hepatic cirrhosis nutritional alcoholic (CHAN) in 90 (90.7%). Patients were hospitalized for 3-10 days (average 6.5 days), mortality in immediate postoperatory period of 2.4%. Endoscopic sclerotherapy of esophagic varicose veins with eradication was performed in 114 (93.44%), during the third session. During 3-year follow-up, survival rate of 95% was observed, and 4.9% mortality. Complications were esophagic stenosis 3.2%, recurrence of varicose veins in 6.5%, recurrence bleeding 4.09%, encephalopaty was not observed. Sugiura modified operation and sclerotherapy for management of HPH is safe as an alternative to decrease episodes of bleeding and eradication of esophagus gastric varicose veins as a cause.
