Long-term outcome of argon plasma ablation therapy for bleeding in 100 consecutive patients with colonic angiodysplasia.

PURPOSE Angiodysplasia is a frequent cause of colonic bleeding. Argon plasma coagulation was reported to be useful in endoscopic hemostasis. However, the long-term outcomes have been poorly evaluated. This study was designed to assess the long-term outcomes of bleeding patients with colonic angiodysplasia treated by argon plasma coagulation. METHODS A… CONTINUE READING
