However, this limitation is ameliorated by a very thorough drug history.

Controls were matched with the bleeders after collection of data from all these patients. It has been demonstrated that case finding of GI bleeders with a prospective method was clearly superior to case finding based on ICD codes [ 1 ]. An age- and gender-matched control group consisted of patients who underwent UGE during the study period and were without GIB.

The proportion of esophagitis as a cause of bleeding had a wide range of occurrence 1. Urgent surgery for AUGIB used to be common, but the need for acute surgery has steadily been decreasing in the last decades [ 13 ].

The drugs recorded were the following: Support Center Support Mslena. Individuals who were hemahemesis of the greater metropolitan area were all excluded.

Upper gastrointestinal tract safety profile of alendronate: Every individual medical record was reviewed and all data were verified. Before the endoscopic procedure, the gastroenterologist noted the indication for the endoscopy and its findings were recorded in a prospective fashion and later verified with analysis of medical records.

Out of the two patients who were successfully surgically treated, one patient had a perforated gastric ulcer M31 whereas the other had a bleeding duodenal ulcer M58 Table V.

Upper gastrointestinal bleeding: incidence, etiology and outcomes in a population-based setting

In 44 of those patients, a CLO test Campylobacter -like organism test was performed. The use of low-dose aspirin LDA as an anticoagulant is increasing [ 17 ] and an association with aekep risk of AUGIB [ 17—19 ] has been well documented. Click here to sign up. The aims of the current study hhematemesis to study the incidence of AUGIB in a population-based setting, with a particular focus on the role of drugs in its etiology.


Bukan jurnal, karya ilmiah, dll. These data were accessed and examined by the researchers. Laboratory values were collected and were as follows: Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that the incidence of AUGIB is in reality lower in LDA users than the authors reported and higher for warfarin users. Further mleena on laboratory parameters can be found in Supplementary Table I.

Although the incidence of AUGIB has been rather extensively hematemmesis, there are only three prospective population-based studies reporting on the incidence in the last decade [ 5,8,9 ]. The need for acute surgery in this study was only 1.

In conclusion, peptic ulcers remain the most common cause of AUGIB with duodenal ulcers being more common than gastric ulcers. A total of patients underwent UGEs. This point does not apply to warfarin since the authors were able to exclude patients with residency outside of the greater metropolitan area in the warfarin calculations.

Upper gastrointestinal bleeding: incidence, etiology and outcomes in a population-based setting

Almost all patients were diagnosed with the first UGE Recently, a study from the Netherlands has confirmed this [ 33 ]. Data collection Before the askwp procedure, the gastroenterologist noted the indication for the endoscopy and its findings were recorded in a prospective fashion and later verified with analysis of medical records.

A larger portion of the bleeders were using warfarin than non-bleeders. Adverse effects of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs NSAIDs, aspirin and coxibs on upper gastrointestinal tract. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. An evaluation of endoscopic indications and findings related to nonvariceal upper-GI hemorrhage in a large multicenter consortium. A flow chart showing patients who were included in the study and the patient groups that were excluded.

The main strengths of this study are its prospective and population-based design. The incidence of AUGIB seems to be declining in the western world [ 6,8,9,14 ] which has been considered to be due to decreased incidence of Helicobacter pylori HP in western countries and an increase in implementing prevention strategies in users of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs NSAIDs [ 3,7—9 ].

Epidemiology and course of acute upper gastro-intestinal haemorrhage in four French geographical areas. However, LDA is the most sold drug in Iceland and although there might have been remnants in stock at the end ofthere should also have been remnants in stock from to the beginning of A comparison of clinically and non-clinically significant bleeding revealed that gastric ulcers were more common in the former group Table IV.


The authors were able to match patients two-to-one and there was no selection of non-bleeding patients matched.

In all, hejatemesis of the treated with warfarin had a bleeding episode, meaning 1 in every 70 mmelena treated experienced AUGIB. Further information on endoscopic hemostasis is available in Supplementary Table II.

Time trends and impact of upper and lower gastrointestinal bleeding and perforation in clinical practice. One M77 patient with end-stage obstructive pulmonary disease had three bleeding gastric ulcers and the bleeding caused a cardiac arrest Table V.
