Endoscopic Treatment of Duodenal Perforation Using a Clipping Device: Case Report and Review of the Literature

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

The standard treatment for gastrointestinal perforation secondary to an endoscopic procedure is surgical repair. Some authors advocate a conservative medical management. However, this approach may be associated with increased morbidity and mortality. We describe a case of duodenal perforation secondary to snare polypectomy that was successfully treated with endoclipping. Additional published case reports were reviewed. Current data suggest that endoclipping may be appropriate in the management of a select group of patients with iatrogenic gastrointestinal perforation.
