Fig. 7.Patient with severe hematochezia and a definitive colon diverticular hemorrhage (active bleeding) in descending colon. Initially, the diverticulum is injected with epinephrine (1:10 000 in saline) in 3 sites near the bleeding point. Then a 10F Gold probe (power setting 14 W and 2-second pulses) gently tamponaded the bleeding site and coagulated it to flatten the visible vessel. India ink tattooing and the appearance at the end of the procedure are shown. No complications or rebleeding occurred.
