Digestive Hemorrhage

Digestive hemorrhage is first seen as the presence of blood in vomit or in stools, depending on the site of origin of the bleeding.

The most frequent causes of gastric bleeding include gastric ulcers or varicose veins in the esophagus. Depending on the severity of the bleeding, this might place the patient’s life at risk. An endoscopic procedure done to stop hemorrhage reduces the patient’s risk and helps avoid blood transfusions and reduce length of hospital stay.
