Abstract

An endoscopic band ligation method was successful in achieving hemostasis in two patients who had severe coagulopathy and profuse gastrointestinal bleeding from a visible vessel in the stomach. Bleeding was not controlled by multiple epinephrine injections or BICAP electrocoagulation. The technique of band ligation was easy to perform and may provide an alternative treatment for non-variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding in selected cases.
