Esophageal varieties are a special case of venous varices (along with varicose veins and hemorrhoids ). In the esophagus varicose veins, the situation is somewhat different from, for example, haemorrhoids , because the esophagus is quite inappropriate in the convectional circulation, ie, the used blood still leads to filtration into the liver. This makes sense in other parts of the digestive system, because the absorbed nutrients from the food are immediately trapped in the liver and do not blame unnecessarily all over the bloodstream. However, in the esophagus, it only leads to pressure when the liver caps are partially blocked (mostly due to cirrhosis ) in the esophageal veins. This leads to varices in the same way as any other part of the body.
