This month’s journal-based CME article is titled "Systematic Review and Meta-analysis On Prophylactic Transarterial Angioembolisation of High Risk Bleeding Peptic Ulcer Disease". This study is a meta-analysis of 5 publications reviewing outcomes for prophylactic transarterial embolization (TAE) for patients with high-risk peptic ulcers. The authors reviewed patients who underwent both endoscopic therapy (ET) and embolization to ET alone.
This program is designed to meet the educational needs of interventional radiologists, oncologists, nurses, techs, and trainees at all levels with special interest in embolotherapy and upper GI ulcers. To receive CME credit for this journal-based CME activity, participants must read the journal article and score 75% or better on the post test. Participants will have three opportunities to score 75% or better.
After participating in this journal-based CME activity, learners should be able to:
- Understand expected outcomes for patients treated with TAE vs ET for peptic ulcer
- Describe the observed benefit of adding TAE to the therapy of patients with high-risk peptic ulcers
- Review the embolic technique used for TAE of peptic ulcers
