Dieulafoy?s Lesion, A Rare But Potentially Fatal Cause of Gastrointestinal Bleeding Treated With Repeated Therapeutic Gastroscopies : A Case Report
1.1. Introduction: Dieulafoy's lesion (DL) is an uncommon but important cause of recurrent upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Advances in endoscopy have increased the detection rate of Dieulafoy's lesions and have significantly decreased the mortality. Surgical resection was historically the first-line treatment of Dieulafoy's lesions, usually taking the form of gastrotomy and wide-wedge resectionor gastrectomy.
