- Mallory - Weiss syndrome, endoscopic hemostasis, gastrointestinal hemorrhage
- The authors analyzed the effi cacy of endoscopic methods used in Mallory - Weiss syndrome by the comparison of the results of treatment in 549 patients. The patients were divided into two groups: fi rst group where endosopic methods were not used in the treatment (from 2000 to 2004) and second group where endoscopic methods were used in the diagnosis and treatment (from 2004 to 2008). The signifi cant decrease of the operative activity and general mortality was determined in the treatment with endoscopic methods application.
