Argon Plasma Coagulation Risks and Benefits

Risks / Benefits

What are the advantages of this procedure?

APC has several potential benefits, including:

  • Destroying or sealing tissue that’s bleeding.
  • Eliminating abnormal tissue, whether noncancerous, precancerous or cancerous.
  • Revising or correcting weight loss surgery so you stop gaining weight.

What are the potential complications of argon plasma coagulation?

APC is generally safe. Complications are rare, but may include:

  • Bleeding.
  • Complications from anesthesia (for example, problems waking up, trouble breathing or heart issues).
  • Stenosis (narrowing) of digestive structures.
  • Torn tissue in your esophagus, stomach or intestines.

Recovery and Outlook

What is the recovery time from argon plasma coagulation?

Most people can return home immediately after APC and resume normal activities the next day. Your doctor may recommend some limitations for a few hours or days, such as:

  • Avoid drinking alcohol.
  • Don’t drive or operate heavy machinery because of the effects of sedation/anesthesia.
  • Have someone drive you home and stay with you for a few hours.
  • Your provider will advise you about your diet after argon plasma coagulation. You should be able to restart your usual diet slowly.
