Abstract
Gastrointestinal bleeding is among the major clinical challenges for the gastroenterologists and the initial approach is very complex. For a big part of bleeding lesions, it is important to perform an endoscopic hemostatis after the introduction of an intravenous treatment (that has to be started as soon as there is a clinical suspicion of an upper gastrointestinal bleeding). The significant progresses made during the last years have allowed firstly to see the entire small bowel mucosa (video capsule) and secondly new treatments have successfully replaced surgical interventions.
