Endoscopic band ligation is used commonly to treat variceal bleeding. The use of band ligation has been described in selected cases of nonvariceal bleeding. The successful use of endoscopic band ligation, after the failure of standard techniques, to arrest bleeding in two cases of gastric ulcer hemorrhage is reported. Prospective studies are indicated to further evaluate this technique.
