Abstract

Video-laparoscopy is very useful for avoiding explorative laparatomies on patients affected by digestive hemorrhages of obscure origin. In these cases, the video-laparoscopic approach allows full and meticulous explorations of the small bowel to be performed, and seems to be useful for diagnosis through direct observation of the lesions. Moreover, if necessary, video-laparoscopy can be used for the effective treatment of the diseases.
