Abstract

Ankaferd blood stopper (ABS) is a standardized medicinal plant extract that stimulates the formation of an encapsulated protein network that provides focal points for erythrocyte aggregation. It has a therapeutic potential to be used for the management of external hemorrhage. Here, the authors report an infant bleeding from peptic ulcer was stopped successfully by gastroscopic application of ABS and other cases that used topical ABS for mucosal bleedings are also presented.
