The use of lasers has been of great importance in the field of endoscopy and surgery for their applications in coagulation and the ability to vaporize tissue. In the 1990s, new machines were introduced based on a different technology, the argon-plasma-coagulation (APC) system. This technology causes different biological effects without direct contact. An example is the hemostasis of bleeding. In the literature, several cases of complications have been reported during endoscopic treatment with APC. In this study, we report our experience of a case with colon explosion during an APC procedure for bleeding due to radiotherapy and also review the literature on the complications of APC treatment.
