Supplementary Angiographic Embolization for Peptic Ulcer Bleeding

2014-07-23 21:09:03 | BioPortfolio


Peptic ulcer bleeding is a common disorder. Despite optimal endoscopic and medical treatment, there is a high risk of rebleeding and high mortality. In this study the investigators examine whether combined endoscopic haemostasis and angiographic embolization resolves in a better outcome than the traditional use of endoscopic haemostasis alone. The study is a randomised controlled trail.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Bleeding from a PEPTIC ULCER that can be located in any segment of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT.

Penetration of a PEPTIC ULCER through the wall of DUODENUM or STOMACH allowing the leakage of luminal contents into the PERITONEAL CAVITY.

Ulcer that occurs in the regions of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT which come into contact with GASTRIC JUICE containing PEPSIN and GASTRIC ACID. It occurs when there are defects in the MUCOSA barrier. The common forms of peptic ulcers are associated with HELICOBACTER PYLORI and the consumption of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).

Treatment of varicose veins, hemorrhoids, gastric and esophageal varices, and peptic ulcer hemorrhage by injection or infusion of chemical agents which cause localized thrombosis and eventual fibrosis and obliteration of the vessels.
