Core Tip

Core Tip: Gastric wall necrosis is a rare but dangerous complication of endoscopic treatment for peptic ulcer. This case report describes a 59-year-old male patient who presented with melena and was found to have a giant ulcer in the gastric antrum, which developed gastric wall necrosis after injection of sclerosant and tissue glue. We should consider other more effective methods of hemostasis to avoid gastric wall necrosis.
