Provocative mesenteric angiography for occult gastrointestinal bleeding: a systematic review


“Occult gastrointestinal bleeding (GIB) is a great challenge for physicians to diagnose and treat. Provocative angiography, a technique that involves injecting a provocative drug into the suspected bleeding site to precipitate active bleeding, has been proposed to identify the source of occult GIB. The safety and efficacy of this technique remains a matter of debate. This paper by Siddhi Hegde et al. aims to evaluate the technique and clinical outcomes associated with provocative mesenteric angiography (PMA) for occult GIB.”

How to write a title

The title is not a narrative.
The title of a paper should be short and to the point. It should attract readers and should also appear interesting in literature searches.
