In brief: Difficult to say

Banding of esophageal varices is a non-surgical treatment for these potentially lethal bleeding sites.
..Depending on the underlying disease, banding may completely solve this problem but recurrances of the varices is almost always due to underlying portal hypertension usually due to liver disease.
