Hemostasis with APC 2


  • Chronic and acute capillary bleeding
  • Bleeding following removal of biopsy samples
  • Diffuse bleeding across a large area
  • Acute ulcer bleeding (Forest I b to II b)

Advantages of ERBE equipment

  • Non-contact procedure, no adhesion of the instrument tips
  • Effective, uniform and targeted staunching of bleeding and devitalization
  • Better dosage of penetration depth leads to safer application
  • Low risk of perforations thanks to limited penetration depth
  • Minimal carbonization and smoke plume formation, minimal pollution through unpleasant odors
  • Axial, radial or lateral application possible
  • Broad range of applications through different APC modes

Operation steps
Treatment of Radiation Proctitis

Treatment of Radiation Proctitis

Radiation proctitis can take the form of teleangiectasias and hemorrhagic mucosal changes in the area of the rectum (see fig.). The use of APC to treat radiation proctitis is already established; it can lead to an improvement of symptoms and bleeding episodes after an average of two sessions carried out at an interval of three to four weeks.

Angiodysplasia located in the gastric antrum

Angiodysplasia located in the gastric antrum

Usually an application using a low energy output is sufficient to staunch the bleeding. The use of low energy outputs also helps to minimize the risk of perforation in thin-walled areas (e.g. the small intestine or the right colon), where angiodysplasias often occur.
