Dieulafoy's lesion (DL) is a relatively uncommon medical condition characterized by a large tortuous arteriole in the submucosa of any part of gastrointestinal (GI) tract wall that bleeds via erosion likely caused in the submucosal surface by protrusion of the pulsatile arteriole. Compared with other endoscopic hemostatic techniques, clipping alone for DL is limited.
