In brief: Procedure

Stomach avms (artero-venous malformations) are common causes of GI bleeding.
These can be very frustrating to treat as they are not the same as ulcers or gastritis that also cause bleeding and are treated by acid reducing or stomach coating meds. If they bleed, an egd is usually needed for coagulation or chemical scarring therapy. Be gentle with your stomach and no/moderate alcohol, caffeine, smoke.
