Abstract
Gastric mucosal lacerations occurring during the course of upper gastroduodenal endoscopy are apparently rare. The location and extent of the lesion are little different from the usual one found in the Mallory-Weiss tear. But the pathogenesis of the gastric mucosal tear is similar to that of Mallory-Weiss tear. Hiatal hernia, atrophic gastritis, and old age are predisposing factors for Mallory-Weiss tear. There is currently only one report about extensive gastric mucosal laceration during performance of endoscopy in an elderly patient. During a standard diagnostic endoscopic procedure, we experienced extensive gastric mucosal laceration that ranged from the gastroesophageal junction to the gastric angle in an elderly woman Furthermore, her body surface area and stomach size were very small. The patient was treated successfully with hemoclip application for the laceration. We report on the case along with a review of the relevant literature.
