Although various methods are used in the treatment of peptic ulcer bleeding, there is not a standard recommended approach. The choice depends on multiple factors such as location of the ulcer, clinical experience of endoscopist and local facilities of the clinic. We aimed to compare the efficacy of monopolar hemostatic forceps soft coagulation (MHFSC) and hemoclips (HC) in the treatment of peptic ulcer related upper GI bleeding.

Name: Gastrointestinal endoscopy
In recent years, several reports have noted that the specific coagulation mode called "soft coagulation" with modern electrosurgical tools offers superior hemostasis. The "suction ball coagulation" (S...
The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes associated with the use of a novel monopolar scalpel with those associated with the use of an ultrasonic scalpel for cervical conization of cervical i...
To assess the effect of monopolar coagulation vs cut mode during colpotomy at total laparoscopic hysterectomy on vaginal cuff dehiscence.
Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is a complex, dynamic and hemostatic disorder which develops secondarily to a disease characterized with an imbalance in the pro-coagulant and anti-coagula...
Sickle cell disease, the most common genetic blood disorder in the world, has high clinical variability, negatively impacts quality of life and contributes to early mortality. Sickled erythrocytes cau...
The purpose is to investigate whether a simple additional treatment applied during colonoscopy (called 'soft' coagulation) can reduce the risk of recurrence of polyp at the area where the ...
A new electrocautery bronchoscopy biopsy forceps is now commercially available and may prevent bleeding following biopsy. Only one study used this device wherein the authors concluded that...
Sepsis induces hemostatic disorders due to the exessive or inappropriate activation of inflammation, which could lead either to hypercoagulability or hypocoagulability. It is currently not...
Since the development a few years ago of bipolar energy in the surgery by operative hysteroscopy, the hysteroscopic treatment of menorrhagia by endometrial ablation can be achieved either ...
Study objective is to provide prospective randomized controlled data on pediatric pain levels found in PlasmaKnife tonsillectomy and monopolar tonsillectomy.
Pathological processes involving the integrity of blood circulation. Hemostasis depends on the integrity of BLOOD VESSELS, blood fluidity, and BLOOD COAGULATION. Majority of the hemostatic disorders are caused by disruption of the normal interaction between the VASCULAR ENDOTHELIUM, the plasma proteins (including BLOOD COAGULATION FACTORS), and PLATELETS.
Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.
A cellulose of varied carboxyl content retaining the fibrous structure. It is used as a local hemostatic and as a matrix for normal blood coagulation.
Soluble protein fragments formed by the proteolytic action of plasmin on fibrin or fibrinogen. FDP and their complexes profoundly impair the hemostatic process and are a major cause of hemorrhage in intravascular coagulation and fibrinolysis.
Spontaneous or near spontaneous bleeding caused by a defect in clotting mechanisms (BLOOD COAGULATION DISORDERS) or another abnormality causing a structural flaw in the blood vessels (HEMOSTATIC DISORDERS).
Peptic Ulcer Disease
Peptic Ulcer Disease - stomach ulcer, duodenal ulcers used to refer to all types of peptic ulcers. A peptic ulcer is an erosion in a segment of the Gastrointestinal (GI) muscularis mucosae, typically in the stomach (gastric ulcer) or the first few cent...
