Conference paper


Early endoscopy has an important role in the evaluation and treatment of patients with upper gastrointestinal bleeding [1]. Clarification of the precise appearance of the lesions by endoscopy gives important information about the prognosis, risk of rebleeding, and indications for surgery [2]. There are several effective endoscopic modalities for the control of bleeding [3,4]. This section reports on the current status of endoscopic management of nonvariceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding.
