Sample text

Controlled studies. Also three controlled studies (Swain et al. 1981; Vallon et al. 1981; Jensen et al. 11). One study showed doubtful benefit of haemostasis only for arterial spurting lesions (Vallon et al. 1981). The other 2 studies could demonstrate haemostasis, a lower rebleeding rate as well as less need for surgery, solely in patients with active bleeding lesions. The reported complication of a laser-induced bleeding was thought to be related to inadequate cleaning of the ulcer base and insufficient exposure of the bleeding vessel.

Swelling due to tissue oedema, and white discolouration of the whole lesion by coagulation of proteins and with intact mucosal lining, creates the desired effect, and dictates the end of the treatment. Carbonization and black discolouration as well as smoke formation have to be avoided, but can sometimes occur during active bleeding. The centre of the lesion may become invisible due to blanching upon vascular compression and interruption of the blood flow, and this may thwart the final step in the treatment.

Aetiology and pathogenesis Vascular lesions are inherited and congenital in patients with hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia. e. the incidence in the aged, the preference for the right colon and distal stomach and the association with heart-valve disease, vascular disease and coagulopathy. Most authors agree that this vascular abnormality is an acquired degenerative condition of advanced age. The hypothesis proposed by Boley et al. (1979, 1986) is both in accordance with the described pathology and with the angiographic findings.
