We present a video of an endoscopic repair of a Dieulafoy Ulcer. The patient is a 73-year-old Hispanic female who presented multiple times with GI bleeding. She has a history of end-stage renal disease and is on hemodialysis. Her recurrent bleeds were initially diagnosed as a Mallory-Weiss tear. However, the chronicity of her symptoms led the surgical team to suspect another diagnosis, specifically a Dieulafoy lesion. During an upper endoscopy, a Dieulafoy lesion was identified and oversewn with 2-0 Demelene, using a figure-of-eight suture technique. Postoperatively, the patient is doing well and has had no recurrence of her GI bleeding since her May 2017 procedure.
