Progress in Endoscopic Treatment of Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding
Abstract: Due to the increase in the incidence of upper gastrointestinal bleeding, the treatment methods are more and more diversified. With the popularization of endoscopic techniques and the wide range of endoscopic hemostasis methods, endoscopy has become an important method for the treatment of upper gastrointestinal bleeding, and greatly updated the treatment concept of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. In this paper, we reviewed the literature reports of endoscopic treatment of upper gastrointestinal bleeding in recent years.
