Noriko Nishiyama et al. Efficacy of endoscopic ligation with O-ring closure for prevention of bleeding after gastric endoscopic submucosal dissection under antithrombotic therapy: a prospective observational study

This retrospective study evaluated a novel endoscopic ligation technique with O-ring closure (E-LOC) to prevent bleeding after gastric endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) in patients receiving antithrombotic therapy. In 48 patients, the complete closure rate was 97.9 % and the bleeding rate was 0 %. The preventive effect of E-LOC on post-ESD bleeding needs further study specifically targeting patients at high risk of bleeding.
