Abstract

In a 48-year-old Japanese man there was an uncontrollable and recurrent bleeding from a gastric ulcer and laparoscopic surgery was done. Two cannulae were placed in the gastric cavity through the abdominal wall and suture ligation of the bleeding vessel at the posterior wall of the stomach was done under videovisual control with endoscopic guidance. The bleeding ceased, complications were nil, and he remains well. This article reports on surgery done to repair uncontrollable, recurrent bleeding from a gastric ulcer. Two cannulae were placed in the gastric cavity through the abdominal wall and suture of the vessel at the posterior wall of the stomach was done with videovisual control and endoscopic guidance. This approach is concluded to have supplied minimal-access surgery, cost effectiveness, early discharge, less pain, and doctor-patient satisfaction.
