Esophageal Varices are dilated and twisted (tortuous) veins in the lower portion of the esophagus, caused by portal hypertension, which may result in serious gastrointestinal bleeding. Portal Hypertension occurs when the normal blood flow to the liver is blocked (commonly associated with liver cirrhosis), causing pressure to back up into the veins of the esophagus and stomach.
