Paper Abstract

In 1 975, lasers were introduced in digestive endoscopy to stop active gastroduodenal haemorrhages. Their use spread progressively to the treatment of chronic haemorrhages from vascular malformations and sessile tumours, and, 20 years later, it is interesting to observe their current applications in digestive endoscopy, and the extent of their daily use all over the world.
