Endoscopy can be used to stop bleeding in the digestive tract. A doctor can insert tools through the endoscope to

  • inject chemicals into the bleeding site
  • treat the bleeding site and surrounding tissue with a heat probe, electric current, or laser
  • close affected blood vessels with a band or clip

Endoscopy does not always control bleeding. Angiography can be used to inject medicine or other material into blood vessels to control some types of bleeding. If endoscopy and angiography do not work, the patient may need other treatments or surgery to stop the bleeding.

To prevent bleeding in the future, doctors can treat the conditions that cause bleeding, such as

  • H. pylori and other infections
  • GERD
  • ulcers
  • hemorrhoids
  • polyps
  • inflammatory bowel diseases
