This article focuses on a study regarding the effect of scheduled second therapeutic endoscopy on peptic ulcer rebleeding, published in the 2003 issue of the journal "Gut." In the author's opinion, only a few patients with ulcer bleeding might benefit from a planned second therapeutic endoscopy. Although the study shows a substantial reduction in rebleeding rates in the active treatment group, the absolute re-bleeding rates were quite low in both scheduled second endoscopy and control groups. It is important to note that the patients in this study received an IV proton-pump inhibitor after endoscopic therapy.
