Efficacy of Hemostasis by Soft Coagulation Using Endoscopic Hemostatic Forceps for Acute Peptic Ulcer Bleeding

This study has been completed.

Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Jung-Wook Kim, Kyunghee University Medical Center
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT02020603
First received: December 15, 2013
Last updated: January 20, 2016
Last verified: January 2016
  Purpose
Endoscopic high-frequency soft coagulation is available for the management of bleeding or nonbleeding visible vessels during endoscopic submucosal dissection. However, its efficacy on peptic ulcer bleeding has not been elucidated so far. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of hemostasis with soft coagulation using hemostatic forceps by comparing it with argon plasma coagulation (APC) in a prospective, randomized trial.
