Core Tip This study was an updated meta-analysis of primary prevention and the first meta-analysis of secondary prevention of variceal bleeding in cirrhotic patients. Seven relevant randomized controlled trials were included. Based on the pooled analysis, carvedilol had similar efficacy to endoscopic variceal ligation (EVL) in preventing the first variceal hemorrhage in cirrhosis patients with esophageal varices. Carvedilol was superior to EVL for secondary prevention of variceal bleeding in regard to all-cause mortality reduction by 49% (RR: 0.51, 95%CI: 0.33–0.79).
