Endoscopic Clip Ligation on Mucosal Defect after Endoscopic Mucosal Resection


The main complications associated endoscopic mucosal resection are bleeding and perforation and the rate of complication is increasing in larger size of mucosal resection. We used a new method of endoscopic clipping technique for ligation on the large mucosal defect after endoscopic mucosal resection. A 53-year-old female patient visited our hospital because of epigastric pain. Endoscopic examination revealed a type IIa EGC(early gastric cancer) below angle. The endoscopic mucosal resection was performed and the size of resected specimen was 2.7x2.5cm. The mucosal defect was ligated with 6 hemoclips(Olympus, MD-850) after approximation of both resected margins by grasping forceps(Olympus, FG-4L). Follow up endoscopic examination revealed good quality of ulcer healing. The Endoscopic clipping technique might also be useful for treatment of minor perforation.
