Purpose: To conduct a comparative analysis of the incidence rate and period of gastric and esophageal varices bleeding recurrence associated with extrahepatic portal hypertension after different interventions.

Materials and Methods: The study included 131 patients with various forms of extrahepatic portal hypertension; who underwent operative therapy of extrahepatic portal hypertension in the Republican Specialized Scientific and Practical Medical Center of Surgery named after academic V. Vakhidov (RSSPMCS) for the period from 2006 to 2020. Most patients were adolescents (41.2%) and young age (45.0%). Total gastroesophageal basin disconnection was performed in 57 (43.5%) patients, portosystemic shunting - in 51 (38.9%) patients, and endoscopic interventions - in 23 (17.6%). 

Results: The comparative incidence rate of bleeding recurrence showed that the most effective intervention is portosystemic shunting. Significantly low efficiency is observed after endoscopic interventions, in which the incidence of hemorrhagic syndrome is 65.2% on average after 13.5 ± 2.9 months. While after a total disconnection of the gastroesophageal collector, a relapse-free course was noted in 35.1% (p = 0.014) of cases lasting 25.9 ± 4.4 months (p < 0.05), which in terms of timing did not differ significantly from relapses after portosystemic shunting - 41.4 ± 8.2 months, but significantly lower in the occurrence of variceal bleeding during decompression operations - 17.6% (p < 0.001). 

Conclusion: The most effective surgical intervention is portosystemic shunting with a bleeding recurrence freedom rate in 82.4% (p = 0.014) of patients. The most long-term recurrence period is within 41.4 months (p < 0.05), and with a 5-year persistent remission in 75.0% of patients. After disconnection operations, bleeding recurrence was noted in 35.1% of patients; the recurrence period averaged 19.6 months.
