BACKGROUND: To characterize variables that may predict the need for endoscopic intervention in inpatients admitted for several causes who during the hospitalization developed acute non-variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding (NVUGIB). METHODS: A retrospective analysis of inpatients who underwent upper GI endoscopy for acute NVUGIB while hospitalized for other causes from 1st January 2016 till 1st December 2017, was performed. In the primary outcome analysis, patients (n: 14) who underwent endos...

Endoscopic injection of glues, clotting factors, or sclerosing agents is a well-known therapy for the treatment of non-variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding (NVUGIB), but less is known about endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided treatments. In this setting, literature data are scarce, and no randomized controlled trials are available. We performed a review of the existing literature in order to evaluate the role of EUS-guided therapies in the management of NVUGIB. The most common treated lesions...

Chronic diseases and frailty represent the clinical expressions of the accumulations of biological deficits that occur with aging. However, when addressing chronic diseases, the evaluation of frailty is yet far to be part of routine clinical practice. Frailty and chronic diseases are often treated as different identities. However, the two concepts are related and present a certain amount of overlap and the presence of chronic diseases contributes to the onset of frailty. By taking into considera...

Objective: Upper gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding occurs at a rate of 40-150 episodes per 100,000 persons per year and is associated with a mortality rate of 6%-10%. We sought to determine the need for therapeutic endoscopy or surgical interventions in patients with hematemesis and the association with blood transfusion requirements. Methods: We queried the database of our large teaching facility for adult patients presenting with obvious upper GI hemorrhage (hematemesis) between 2014 and 2017. We...

: The introduction of proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) into clinical practice since about thirty years has greatly improved our therapeutic approach to acid-related diseases for their well recognized efficacy and safety. Accordingly, the role of surgery has been enormously reduced in this field. The main indications for PPI use are universally acknowledged by many scientific societies and are the following: treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease in its various forms and complications, eradica...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Selecting patients with an urgent need for endoscopic hemostasis is difficult based only on simple parameters of presumed acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding. This study assessed easily applicable factors to predict cases in need of urgent endoscopic hemostasis due to acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding. METHODS: The consecutively included patients were divided into the endoscopic hemostasis and nonendoscopic hemostasis groups. We reviewed the enrolled patients' medical reco...

: The number and the proportion of older people in the world have both increased substantially in recent years in most countries, and the growth is projected to accelerate in the coming decades. It is thus important to gain a better understanding of the most frequent diseases in people living to advanced old age. Although the aging process has clinically significant effects on oropharyngeal and upper esophageal motility, colonic function and gastrointestinal (GI) immunity, no specific GI disease...

ObjectiveAIMS65 is a score designed to predict in-hospital mortality, length of stay, and costs of gastrointestinal bleeding. Our aims were to revalidate AIMS65 as predictor of inpatient mortality and to compare AIMS65’s performance with that of Glasgow–Blatchford (GBS) and Rockall scores (RS) with regard to mortality, and the secondary outcomes of a composite endpoint of severity, transfusion requirements, rebleeding, delayed (6-month) mortality, and length of stay.MethodsThe study included 309...
