Comparison of heater probe and yttrium aluminum garnet laser in endoscopic treatment of major bleeding from peptic ulcers



Comparison of heater probe and yttrium aluminum garnet laser in endoscopic treatment of major bleeding from peptic ulcers



Gastrointestinal Endoscopy 31(3): 175-180



In experience using the YAG [y, Al, garnet] laser and the heater probe in endoscopic treatment of major hemorrhage from peptic ulcers, ultimate hemostatic success was achieved in 19 to 20 (95%) ulcers treated with the heater probe, vs. 24 of 35 (69%) YAG laser-treated ulcers (P < 0.05). The heater probe was considerably faster, more convenient to use, and safer than YAG laser. The heater probe is considered to be the preferred endoscopic hemostatic device.
