The goal of laser treatment of the visible vessel or bleeding ulcer is to stop the bleeding to allow healing of the ulcer base. Adjuvant techniques including the use of vasoconstrictive agents, tissue adhesives, and tissue injection hold future promise in complementing laser therapy. Laser photocoagulation appears to be an effective method of treatment. At this time, however, the therapy of this serious clinical problem is evolving. As experience increases and as new technology and techniques are applied, the development of an effective treatment for the bleeding peptic ulcer or visible vessel is even more promising.
