The endoscopic hemostatic method has been introduced as a safe and effective mechanical approach to hemostasis for upper gastrointestinal bleeding related to Mallory-Weiss syndrome. A 62-year-old male patient with chronic cough and a 27-year-old 10-week pregnant female were admitted to our clinic with gross hematemesis. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy was performed and Mallory-Weiss syndrome was diagnosed. Coagulum and visible vessels were observed during the procedure. Argon plasma coagulation was applied. After argon plasma coagulation, complete hemostasis was achieved and rebleeding did not occur. In conclusion, argon plasma coagulation can be performed easily and with minimum risk of complications such as perforation or delayed hemorrhage in patients with actively bleeding non-fibrotic Mallory-Weiss syndrome.
