Treatment of Mallory Weiss Syndrome

Medical Treatment of Mallory Weiss Syndrome

Patients are initially treated as needed with fluid resuscitation and blood transfusions. Most patients stop bleeding spontaneously and require no therapy. Endoscopic hemostatic therapy is employed in patients who have continuing active bleeding. Injection with epinephrine (1:10,000) or cautery with a bipolar or heater probe coagulation device is effective in 90–95% of cases. Angiographic arterial embolization or operative intervention is required in patients who fail endoscopic therapy.
