Objective Patients with a history of Helicobacter pylori-negative idiopathic bleeding ulcers have a considerable risk of recurrent ulcer complications. We hypothesised that a proton pump inhibitor (lansoprazole) is superior to a histamine 2 receptor antagonist (famotidine) for the prevention of recurrent ulcer bleeding in such patients. Design In this industry-independent, double-blind, randomised trial, we recruited patients with a history of idiopathic bleeding ulcers. After ulcer healing, we ...

Background and aims Despite advances in pharmacological and endoscopic management of non-variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding (NVUGIB), mortality is still relevant. TC-325 (Hemospray-Cook Medical) is a mineral powder with adsorptive properties, designed for endoscopic hemostasis. There are still no comparative trials studying this new hemostatic modality. The objective of this research was to compare the use of TC-325 (associated with epinephrine injection) with the combined technique of end...

Background & Aims Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are effective at treating acid-related disorders. These drugs are well tolerated in the short term, but long-term treatment was associated with adverse events in observational studies. We aimed to confirm these findings in an adequately powered randomized trial. Methods We performed a 3 × 2 partial factorial double-blind trial of 17,598 participants with stable cardiovascular disease and peripheral artery disease randomly assigned to groups given p...

Background & Aims Antiplatelets and anticoagulants are associated with increased upper gastrointestinal bleeding. We evaluated whether proton pump inhibitor therapy could reduce this risk. Methods We performed a 3 × 2 partial factorial double-blind trial of 17,598 participants with stable cardiovascular disease and peripheral artery disease. Participants were randomly assigned to groups given pantoprazole 40 mg daily or placebo, as well as rivaroxaban 2.5 mg twice daily with aspirin 100 mg once ...

Background and Aims Although various methods are used in the treatment of peptic ulcer bleeding, there is not a standard recommended approach. The choice depends on multiple factors such as location of the ulcer, clinical experience of the endoscopist, and local facilities of the clinic. We aimed to compare the efficacy of monopolar hemostatic forceps soft coagulation (MHFSC) and hemoclips (HCs) in the treatment of peptic ulcer–related upper GI bleeding. Methods The study group included patients...

The association between the long-term use of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and the risks of various diseases remains controversial. Therefore, the primary objective of this study was to quantify the associations as presented in the literature and to also provide this information to healthcare profes

AbstractIntroduction: Rebleeding or emergency surgery in failed endoscopic therapy of peptic ulcer bleeding are associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality. The clinical benefit of an endoscopic Doppler (ED) examination prior to endoscopic injection therapy was evaluated in high risk ulcer patients for rebleeding episode. Standard injection therapy (non-Doppler (ND)) was compared with targeted injection therapy after examination of the supplying vessel in the ulcer base by the ED.Mater...

Abstract Background & Aims Endoscopic hemostasis is effective in treatment of bleeding peptic ulcers. However, re-bleeding is difficult to treat and associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. We performed a prospective randomized trial to determine whether over the scope clips (OTSC) are more effective that standard treatment of severe recurrent upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Methods We performed our study at 9 academic referral centers (in Germany, Switzerland, and Hong Kong) from M...

In the last decade, epidemiological studies presented inconsistent findings concerning the proton pump inhibitors (PPI) use and the risk of hip fracture. So, this systematic review and meta-analysis were performed with the aim to quantify the risk of hip fracture associated with PPI use. PubMed® and Cochrane Central databases were searched from inception to January 2018. The quality of included studies in meta-analysis was assessed using Newcastle-Ottawa scale. Primary outcome of this study was ...

BACKGROUND:Primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is a standard treatment in patients with acute coronary syndrome. Studies have shown that proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) can potentially attenuate the antiplatelet effects of P2Y12 inhibitors with associated adverse cardiovascular outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS:Medline was searched using Pubmed from inception to 8 November 2017 for randomized control trials studying the effect of PPIs on coronary artery disease with concomitant use of d...

Given the dramatic increase in critically ill patients who present to the emergency department for care, along with the persistence of boarding of critically ill patients, it is imperative for the emergency physician to be knowledgeable about recent developments in resuscitation and critical care medicine. This review summarizes important articles published in 2020 that pertain to the resuscitation and care of select critically ill patients. These articles have been selected based on the authors...

Abstract null null Introduction null Upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) is associated with substantial morbidity, mortality, and intensive care unit (ICU) utilization. Initial risk stratification and disposition from the Emergency Department (ED) can prove challenging due to limited data points during a short period of observation. An ED-based ICU (ED-ICU) may allow more rapid delivery of ICU-level care, though its impact on patients with UGIB is unknown. null null null Methods null A retros...

BACKGROUND Photodocumentation during endoscopy procedures is one of the indicators for endoscopy performance quality; however, this indicator is difficult to measure and audit in the endoscopy unit. Emerging artificial intelligence technology may solve this problem, which requires a large amount of material for model development. We developed a deep learning-based endoscopic anatomy classification system through convolutional neural networks with an accelerated data preparation approach. PATIENT...

OBJECTIVE While it is recommended that patients presenting with acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding (AUGIB) should receive endoscopic intervention within 24 hours, the optimal timing is still uncertain. We aimed to assess whether endoscopy timing postadmission would affect outcomes. DESIGN We conducted a retrospective, territory-wide, cohort study with healthcare data from all public hospitals in Hong Kong. Adult patients (age ≥18) that presented with AUGIB between 2013 and 2019 and received t...

Background and study aims Ulcers with high-risk stigmata have significant rebleeding rates despite standard endoscopic therapy. Data on over-the-scope clip (OTSC) for recurrent bleeding is promising but data on first line therapy is lacking. We report comparative outcomes of OTSC as first-line therapy versus standard endoscopic therapy in ulcers with high-risk stigmata. null null null null Patients and methods Consecutive adults who underwent endoscopic therapy for ulcers with high-risk stigmata...
Introduction: The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has led to the restructuring of digestive endoscopy units around the world, limiting endoscopic procedures and prioritizing emergency indications such as upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage (UGH). However, there is little evidence regarding its impact on evolution and outcomes. Objective: To evaluate the management of UGH in the context of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus pandemic. Materials and methods: Observational, descriptive, retrospective study carried out be...

Acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) is a common disorder and a gastroenterological emergency. With the development of new techniques and devices, the survivability after gastrointestinal bleeding is improving. However, at the same time, we are facing the difficulty of severely complicated cases with various diseases. For example, while endoscopic examination with a normal diameter endoscope is essential for the diagnosis and treatment of UGIB, there are several cases in which it cannot ...

ABSTRACT Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) is a useful procedure performed for gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. No definite clinical guidelines recommend EGD implementation in intensive care unit (ICU) patients with suspected GI bleeding. The objective of this study was to compare the clinical effectiveness of EGD in critically ill patients who are using high-dose proton pump inhibitor (PPI) for suspected GI bleeding.We retrospectively analyzed ICU patients using high-dose PPI for suspected GI ble...
