  1. Comparison of adrenaline injection and bipolar electrocoagulation for the arrest of peptic ulcer bleeding.

    Article - En anglais

    Background-Peptic ulcers with active bleeding or a non-bleeding visible vessel require aggressive endoscopic treatment.

    Aims-To determine whether endoscopic adrenaline injection alone or contact probe therapy following injection is a suitable treatment for peptic ulcer bleeding.

    Methods-total of 96 patients with active bleeding or non-bleeding visible vessels received adrenaline alone, bipolar electrocoagulation alone, or combined treatment (n=32 in each group).


    Initial haemostasis was not achieved in one patient in the adrenaline group, two in the gold probe group, and two in the injection gold probe group (p>0.1).

    Rebleeding episodes were fewer in the injection gold probe group (2130,6.7%) than in the gold probe group (9130,30%, p=0.04) and in the adrenaline group (11/31,35.5%, p=0.01).

    Treatment failure (other therapy required) was rarer in the injection gold probe group (4/32,12.5%) than in the adrenaline group (12/32,37.5%, p=0.04).

    The volume of blood transfused after entry of the study was less in the injection gold probe group (mean 491 ml) than in the adrenaline group (1548 ml, p<0.0001) and the gold probe group (1105 ml, p<0.01).

    Duration of hospital stay, numbers of patients requiring urgent surgery, and death rate were not statistically different among the three groups. (...)
