Core Tip Antiviral therapy with nucleoside analogs improves clinical outcome in hepatitis B virus (HBV)-related decompensated cirrhosis. However, the emergence of resistance results in liver injury. The consequences may be worse in patients with esophageal varices (EV), in which bleeding and death often occur. This study evaluated the efficacy of antiviral treatment over 5 years in patients with HBV-related cirrhosis and EV and found that antiviral therapy decreased the risk of bleeding. However, agents with a high rate of virological breakthrough were ineffective in preventing bleeding. These findings provide evidence-based suggestions for the treatment of this special group of patients.
