In three patients with portal venous hypertension and oesophageal varices the effect of domperidon on the haemodynamics of the varices was studied. Following transhepatic catheterisation of the left gastric vein the perfusion of the oesophageal varices before and after the application of domperidon was evaluated angiographically. No decrease of the perfusion of the oesophageal varices secondary to domperidon was observed using this method. (orig.).
