Endoscopy is a safe and effective modality for the diagnosis and treatment of lesions in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. During the last few decades, improvements in image quality and technical advances have led to the widespread use of endoscopy in various medical fields. Because it is relatively noninvasive and generally safe, the role of endoscopy has been emphasized in morbid patients with postoperative GI bleeding. However, there has been concern about the safety and complications of endoscopy. Here, we review endoscopic management of GI bleeding as a complication of surgery and therapeutic endoscopy.
