Abstract

In the treatment of bleeding peptic ulcers, the concept of dual therapy combining a second modality to epinephrine injection is theoretically appealing. The addition of a sclerosant has not been shown to be beneficial. Early evidence suggests that adding contact thermocoagulation or a thrombogenic agent improves patient outcome.
