Abstract

The risk of complications associated with endoscopic procedures, including bleeding and perforation, tends to increase due to the magnification of the therapeutic endoscopic spectrum. In cases of duodenal perforation, surgical closure is the treatment of choice; however, there have been some cases in which the nonsurgical treatment of an iatrogenic duodenal perforation during an endoscopic procedure was effected via endoscopic clipping closure. Here, we report two cases of successful endoscopic clipping closure of an iatrogenic duodenal perforation occur ring during a duodenoscopy insertion for ERCP and endoscopic mucosal resection for the treatment of duodenal adenoma.
