Endotherapy of Peptic Ulcer
A peptic ulcer is a sore that develops on the stomach lining or small intestine. It can be caused by an infection with the bacterium H. pylori, or by taking certain medications such as aspirin or ibuprofen. Symptoms of peptic ulcer include abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting.
Endotherapy of peptic ulcer is a medical procedure used to treat ulcers in the stomach or small intestine. It involves using an endoscope, which is a long, flexible tube with a camera on the end, to visualize the ulcer and treat it.
Endotherapy of peptic ulcer involves using an endoscope to treat the ulcer. The endoscope is inserted through the mouth and into the stomach or small intestine, allowing the doctor to see the ulcer on a monitor. The doctor can then use a variety of tools to treat the ulcer, including injecting medication, applying heat, or placing clips or bands.
- One common endotherapy technique is injection therapy, where medication is injected directly into the ulcer. This medication can help to reduce inflammation and promote the healing of the ulcer.
- Thermal therapy involves applying heat to the ulcer to help promote healing. This can be done using a variety of techniques, such as using a laser or a heated probe. Thermal therapy is generally well-tolerated and has few side effects.
- Mechanical therapy involves placing clips or bands around the ulcer to help it heal. This technique can be particularly effective for larger ulcers or those that are bleeding.
Endotherapy of peptic ulcer is a safe and effective treatment for ulcers in the stomach or small intestine. It is generally well-tolerated and has few side effects. If you are experiencing symptoms of peptic ulcers, such as abdominal pain or nausea, talk to your doctor about whether endotherapy may be right for you.
