    Fifteen patients found to have active arterial bleeding from non-variceal lesions at upper gastrointestinal endoscopy were treated with local injection of 1/10,000 adrenaline. Permanent haemostasis was obtained in 13 patients, and two required emergency surgery for rebleeding. Adrenaline injection is an effective, simple method of endoscopic haemostasis.
