Abstract

The approach to nonvariceal UGI bleeding has been reviewed. Therapeutic endoscopy has been shown to be superior to medical therapy in patients with an actively bleeding ulcer and those at high risk of rebleeding. Of endoscopic therapies available to the GI endoscopist, multipolar electrocoagulation, heater probe, and injection therapy are comparable in efficacy and safety.
