Argon Plasma Coagulation When to Call the Doctor

When should I see my healthcare provider?

Complications after APC are rare, but seek medical attention if you experience:

  • Abdominal pain that’s severe and doesn’t get better when you pass gas.
  • Chest pain.
  • Dizziness.
  • Fever or chills.
  • Trouble swallowing or pain in your throat that gets worse over time.
  • Rectal bleeding, which may look red or black on toilet paper or in poop.
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Vomiting blood, which may look red or like coffee grounds.

A note

Argon plasma coagulation (APC) is a procedure performed on your digestive tract or lungs and airways. Although APC may sound intimidating, it’s minimally invasive, and your doctor will give you medication to prevent pain. You should be able to go home the same day and resume your usual activities quickly.
