Abstract

Rationale:

Gastroscopymay not only allow identification of gastric injury, but may also facilitate prompt repair.

Patient concerns:

A 39-year-old male patient was admitted 3 hours after abdominal injury caused by penetration of a screwdriver. Physical examination and computed tomography showed no evidence of gastric injury. However, 3000 mL fresh blood was vomited during the subsequent observation period.

Diagnoses:

Gastroscopy identified a ruptured artery and gastric perforation.

Interventions:

Repaired immediately using titanium clips.

Outcomes:

After operation, the patient recovered well without complications. No more bleeding was observed after the operation.

Lesson subsections asper style:

Interventional endoscopy has evolved as an effective alternative to primary surgery for treating gastrointestinal perforation.
