Endoscopic hemostasis versus antisecretory regimen in non-massive bleeding ulcers.

H T. Mappla,
J D. Sollano Jr

Endoscopic hemostasis controls major forms of gastroduodenal ulcer bleeding. However, with volume replacement and standard anti-ulcer therapy, up to 80% of bleeding actually cease spontaneously. Subsequently, the question arises: Is endoscopic hemostasis for non-spurting as well as non-bleeding visible vessel an overtreatment? To determine the benefits of endoscopic intervention in non-massive peptic ulcer hemorrhage, this prospective evaluation of the clinical outcomes of ulcer with oozing or non-bleeding visible vessel managec with either volume replacement and antisecretory regimen alone or with supplementary endoscopic hemostasis was done.
