Core Tip

Core tip: Our study highlights the comparison of two drugs (vonoprazan and lansoprazole) for the treatment of gastric ulcers induced by endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD). There were no significant differences between the two drugs with regard to ulcer shrinkage and delayed bleeding. Our study indicated vonoprazan was potent for the management of ESD ulcers although lansoprazole was also sufficient and cost-effective.
