Endoscopic Hemoclips were developed as a method of securing permanent hemostasis in cases of nonvariceal gastrointestinal bleeding. However, Hemoclips have also been found useful in several other situations, such as closure of small perforations, as marking devices, and for anchoring feeding tubes.
