Endoscopic hemostasis of hemorrhagic ulcer disease
Digestive hemorrhage of ulcer origin despite the development and generalization of helicobacter Pylori eradication treatments.The management of hemorrhage of ulcer origin has clearly evolved over the last few decades, particularly with the development of new endoscopic hemostasis techniques.
Thus, emergency endoscopic treatment is an effective therapeutic alternative that can replace surgery.
The effectiveness of endoscopic treatment was observed in 84% of our patients, and recurrence was noted in only 4 patients, i.e.
a recurrence rate of only 16%.
And among the patients who rebled, only one required a surgical procedure, the others were treated medically.
Thus, endoscopic hemostasis spared surgery in 96% of patients.
