Mallory-Weiss syndrome refers to a laceration or lacerations in the region of the gastroesophageal junction due to vomiting, retching, or coughing induced by several causes, and preceding hematemesis. In the last several years, endoscopic therapies have dramatically changed the need for emergency surgery in patients with upper gastrointestinal bleeding. There is only little information however, regarding the indication criteria and the efficacy of endoscopic therapies in severe upper gastrointestinal bleeding, due to Mallory-Weiss syndrome. This study was designed to assess the usefulness and the indications of endoscopic O-ring band ligation.
Thirty patients with Mallory- Weiss syndrome who were experiencing a related hemorrhage were studied. Among these, 5 patients with active bleeding or a visible vessel revealed during an endoscopic examination were treated with O-ring band ligation. Patients with blood clots or linear tears received only conservative treatment. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 18: 152-160, 1998) (continue)
