Background and aim: Endoscopic methods are effective in the control of endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES) bleeding. Initial failure or recurrent bleeding may develop in some patients, which may require angiographic or surgical interventions. We aimed to determine the factors leading to failure of endoscopic treatment methods.
