Bleeding was controlled using the argon plasma coagulator.
One of the most common complications associated with angiodysplasias is bleeding, which is often occult Angiodysplastic lesions of the upper GI tract are an increasingly recognized cause of occult and obscure GI bleeding.
The argon plasma coagulator (APC) is a non-contact electrocoagulation device that uses high-frequency monopolar current conducted to target tissues through ionised argon gas to achieve haemostasis or tissue ablation. This device may be used to coagulate bleeding endoscopically, as an alternative to standard haemostatic thermal techniques.
