Endoscopic treatment of Dieulafoy’s disease. Nevertheless, the actual incidence of this disease is not accurately known, since misdiagnosis may occur in some cases 4. Endoscopy remains as the main diagnostic and therapeutic tool; however, it continues to have its limitations. Sclerotherapy promotes vascular inflammation and thrombosis from local irritation, whereas cyanoacrylate promotes gluing to plug a bleeding artery.

Thermal coagulation, another enfermexad measure, can be grouped depending on whether it is contact involving bipolar electrocoagulation and heater probe coagulation or non-contact, delivering high-frequency monopolar current through a conductive gas to the submucosa [ 940 ]. Canard JM, Vedrenne B. Gastrointest Endosc ; 44 4: When EGD has failed to locate the source of bleeding, angiography has been implemented.

The Diagnostic Dilemma of Dieulafoy’s Lesion

It may not be detected because an adherent clot may occlude it and sometimes the only way to directly ex- pose it is by washing away the clot with moderate endoscopic perfusion although this is not highly recommended [ 26 ].
