Abstract

Treatment of gastric peptic ulcerations, which requires both medical and surgical coordination in its management, is a complex subject. Despite advances in the medical therapy of ulcers, medications have little impact on the course of bleeding peptic ulceration. Newer endoscopic techniques of injection with adrenaline or alcohol, heater probes, and vicaps electrodes have controlled bleeding in many patients, Still, a subset of patients remains who will require surgical interventions with gastrotomy and oversewing of the ulcer crater. We describe a new technique for management of the acute gastric ulcer bleeding that avoids gastrotomy and potential contamination in the post-transplant patient.
