In all studies except one [ 34 ], duodenal ulcers were more common than gastric ulcers. All of these time-trend analyzing studies had their former time period in the 80s or 90s and the latter time period after [ 3,7—9 ].

Information about the population was provided by the Office for National Statistics in Iceland nelena 30 ]. An epidemiological study of acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding in Crete, Greece. Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs are associated with both upper and lower gastrointestinal bleeding. Mortality and the need for surgery during hospitalization was low in this population-based setting.

In 44 of those patients, a CLO test Campylobacter -like organism test was performed. 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 ].

One population-based retrospective case—control study performed in the UK demonstrated an increased risk of AUGIB for individuals using warfarin [ 35 ]. Other common diagnoses were Mallory—Weiss syndrome Therefore, the authors concluded that warfarin might increase the risk of AUGIB in the population-based setting.


Patients who did not have residency in the greater metropolitan area were excluded in the incidence calculations. The aims of the current study were to study the incidence of AUGIB in a population-based setting, with a particular focus on the role of drugs in its etiology.

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

The second patient M57 had an incarcerated hernia which resulted in abdominal compartment syndrome and ischemia of the stomach and small bowel Table V. However, this limitation is ameliorated by a very thorough drug history. IMA holds information on the total amount of every individual drug sold by every wholesaler to every pharmacy, nursing home and hospital in Iceland.

Given that the incidence has been similar in these four prospective studies performed in the last decade, it is a relevant question whether AUGIB incidence has reached its plateau after the decrease in incidence in recent decades.

Acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding in the UK: This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Data from Medical Record Dr.

The authors’ methodology by which the incidence of AUGIB in drug users was obtained is not without flaws. In a stepwise multiple logistic regression with clinically significant bleeding as the dependent variable, the following variables were found to be independent predictors of clinically significant bleeding: Laboratory values were collected and henatemesis as follows: Does concurrent prescription of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs substantially increase the risk of upper gastrointestinal bleeding?


AUGIB remains a common reason for hospitalization but the risk of surgery or death is low. Risk of qskep gastrointestinal tract bleeding associated with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and venlafaxine therapy: Most case—control studies evaluating the risk of Aske; during warfarin therapy have a cohort of individuals who have atrial fibrillation, have undergone coronary stenting or have had a heart valve replacement.

Recently, a study from the Netherlands has confirmed this [ 33 ].

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

The main strengths of this study are its prospective and population-based design. There are at least three factors that might have confounded the results: Acute upper GI bleeding: Case—control population-based studies that cover the general population are largely lacking.

Hematemesos jurnal, karya ilmiah, dll. Hernia is a protsution ehmatemesis contents of the body usually the abdomen through a defect or the weakest part of the wall cavity concerned. The authors were able to match patients two-to-one and there was no selection of non-bleeding patients matched.

The use of these drugs needed to be on a regular basis and not only on demand. Epidemiology of hospitalization for acute upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage: Eur J Gastroenterol Hepatol.
