Newly developed endoscopic detachable snare ligation therapy for colonic diverticular hemorrhage: a multicenter phase II trial (with videos).

We previously reported preliminary safety results for a new method, endoscopic detachable snare ligation (EDSL), for diverticular hemorrhage. This method does not need endoscope removal to attach a ligation device after detection of the bleeding site. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of EDSL in a larger patient population.

A man with abdominal pain, diarrhoea and rectal bleeding.

A 49-year-old man came to the emergency room with abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhoea and rectal bleeding. Both colonoscopy and CT of the abdomen showed cecocolic intussusception caused by an appendiceal mucocele. An ileocecal resection was performed via a laparoscopic approach and microscopy of the tissue showed a low-grade mucinous neoplasm.

Transcatheter Arterial Embolization for Bleeding Peptic Ulcers: A Multicenter Study.

To investigate the outcomes of transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) for the treatment of peptic ulcer bleeding (PUB).

Rectal bleeding in a 60-year-old woman under anticoagulation and platelet aggregation inhibition.

We report on a woman with lower gastrointestinal bleeding under effective oral anticoagulation with both phenprocoumon and apixaban (with intention to switch to the latter) as well as the antiplatelet agent acetylsalicylic acid for aortic bifurcation kissing stents after stent thrombosis. Our patient presented with weakness and rectal bleeding. Upon examination, she looked anemic and had sinus tachycardia (104 beats per minute). The digital rectal examination revealed bright red blood mixed with clots. We established the diagnosis of lower gastrointestinal bleeding that originated from angiodysplasia in the cecum. The patient was stabilized with fluid resuscitation and transfusion. The bleeding source was treated endoscopically. Phenprocoumon had already been stopped and apixaban was paused immediately. Further intervention regarding coagulation was not needed.
