Case description

The following video presents a case of an elderly man with the past medical history significant for prostate cancer and AF (atrial fibrilation) treated with anticoagulants. The patient was admitted to the hospital, due to rectal bleeding.
To stop the haemorrhage, the APC (argon plasma coagulation) was used. In order to prevent excessive tissue damage and deep ulceration, low settings were used (flow 0.8 lts and 15 W).
