Research recommendations coming out of this guidance
NICE encourages further research into radiofrequency ablation for gastric antral vascular ectasia and collaborative publication of data from local audit. Patient selection should be clearly documented, including details of prior treatments. Outcomes should include success and duration of effect in controlling bleeding and the effect of this on the need for blood transfusion. All complications should be reported. NICE may update the guidance on publication of further evidence.
