PuraStat shows its efficacy in achieving endoscopic haemostasis in postoperative anastomotic ulcers

A new interesting case report highlights the efficacy of PuraStat for achieving endoscopic haemostasis in anastomotic bleeding after ileocecal resection.

In the case described, the patient with chronic heart failure and a history of diabetes mellitus, underwent ileocecal resection of the cecal volvulus. After surgery, the patient was presented with haematochezia and the first emergency endoscopy revealed an oozing bleed from a circumferential anastomotic ulcer. Haemostasis was achieved by applying hemoclips to the visible blood vessels.

6 days later, a massive haematochezia recurred. Additional clips and sodium alginate were used to manage the bleed. The patient was readmitted for the third time due to recurring haematochezia and anemia. 3 mL of PuraStat was applied to the anastomotic ulcer by a delivery catheter and haemostasis was successfully achieved.


The patient has not presented haematochezia for 9 months since the last endoscopy.
