The Use and Safety of A Novel Haemostatic Spray in the Endoscopic Management of Acute Non-Variceal Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding in Children.

Summary of "The Use and Safety of A Novel Haemostatic Spray in the Endoscopic Management of Acute Non-Variceal Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding in Children."

Advanced endo-haemostatic technique performance and experience is extremely variable in distribution amongst pediatric endoscopists. Haemostatic spray (Hemospray®), a novel endo-haemostatic topically applied powder has the advantage of extreme ease of use and; hence may lower the threshold of competency required by the endoscopist thereby potentially reducing mortality. The aim of the study is to prospectively evaluate the efficacy and the safety of haemostatic spray in paediatric patients with AUGIB.
