BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS The mortality rate from upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) remains high, at 5 % - 10 %. The aim of the current study was to describe the epidemiological characteristics, prognostic factors, and actual practice in a cohort of patients with UGIB admitted to French general hospitals. METHODS From March 2005 to February 2006, a prospective multicenter study was conducted at 53 French hospitals. A total of 3298 patients admitted for UGIB were enrolled consecutively… Expand
Prognostic factors associated with upper gastrointestinal bleeding based on the French multicenter SANGHRIA trial
TLDR
The 6-week mortality rate remained high after UGIB, especially for inpatients, and Predictors of mortality underlined the weight of comorbidities on outcomes. Expand
Outcomes of patients hospitalized with peptic ulcer disease diagnosed in acute upper endoscopy
TLDR
PUD is still the most common cause for acute upper endoscopy with very low short-term mortality and comorbidity, but not the stigmata of bleeding, was associated with decreased long-term survival. Expand
RISK STRATIFICATION OF ACUTE UPPER GI BLEEDING BY ROCKALL, GLASGOW BLATCHFORD AND AIMS 65 SCORES
TLDR
Risk stratification and decision to perform interventions including therapeutic endoscopy is often a subjective matter and should be used for early stratification of patients according to risk. Expand
Predictive factors of mortality within 30 days in patients with nonvariceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding
TLDR
Comorbidity of DM or metastatic malignancy, age ≥ 65 years, and hemodynamic instability during hospitalization were predictors of 30-day mortality in patients with NVUGIB, and these results will help guide the management of patients with this condition. Expand
Prognosis of variceal and non‐variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding in already hospitalised patients: Results from a French prospective cohort
TLDR
IPs who develop variceal and non‐variceal UGIB are more likely to be elderly with more comorbidities and have a higher rate of mortality and rebleeding. Expand
Management of upper gastrointestinal bleeding in emergency departments, from bleeding symptoms to diagnosis: a prospective, multicenter, observational study
TLDR
Most of the UGB cases in EDs are revealed by hematemesis, and the emergency physician diagnosis of UGB is rarely challenged by the endoscopic findings. Expand
Acute gastrointestinal bleeding cases presenting to the emergency department are associated with age, sex and seasonal and circadian factors
TLDR
Presentation of patients with acute GIB in the ED is age and sex specific and shows seasonal and circadian differences in distribution, with an increased incidence in winter months and during night-time. Expand
Upper gastrointestinal bleeding risk scores: Who, when and why?
TLDR
The different risk scores used in the UGIB setting are described, the most important research is highlighted, why and when their use may be helpful, reflects on the problems that remain unresolved and guides future research with practical impact. Expand
ENDOSCOPIC DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF UPPER GASTROINTESTINAL BLEEDING
TLDR
The incidence of upper gastrointestinal bleeding is higher in men and it increases with age, while patients with gastric ulcer are older than patients with duodenal ulcer, while both gastric and duodanal ulcers are found in the oldest patients. Expand
Comparison of three risk scores to predict outcomes in upper gastrointestinal bleeding; modifying Glasgow-Blatchford with albumin
TLDR
Modified AIMS65 and albumin-GBS may be optimal choice in evaluating risk of mortality and general assessment and GBS ≤ 2 seemed to be advisable choice in identifying patient for safe discharge. Expand

Causes of Mortality in Patients With Peptic Ulcer Bleeding: A Prospective Cohort Study of 10,428 Cases
TLDR
The majority of PUB patients died of non-bleeding-related causes, and optimization of management should aim at reducing the risk of multiorgan failure and cardiopulmonary death instead of focusing merely on successful hemostasis. Expand
Acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding in the UK: patient characteristics, diagnoses and outcomes in the 2007 UK audit
TLDR
AUGIB continues to result in substantial mortality although it appears to be lower than in 1993, and Mortality is particularly high among inpatients and those bleeding from varices or upper gastrointestinal malignancy. Expand
Epidemiology and course of acute upper gastro‐intestinal haemorrhage in four French geographical areas
TLDR
In France, patients with AUGIH are frequently managed as out‐patients and Gastrotoxic drug use is frequently associated with AugIH and constitutes a strategic opportunity for preventive treatment. Expand
Risk assessment after acute upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage.
TLDR
It was found that age, shock, comorbidity, diagnosis, major stigmata of recent haemorrhage, and rebleeding are all independent predictors of mortality when assessed using multiple logistic regression and a numerical score that closely follows the predictions generated by logistical regression equations was developed.

The Canadian Registry on Nonvariceal Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding and Endoscopy (RUGBE): Endoscopic Hemostasis and Proton Pump Inhibition are Associated with Improved Outcomes in a Real-Life Setting
TLDR
Analysis of patients endoscoped for nonvariceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding at 18 community and tertiary care institutions between 1999 and 2002 appears to confirm the protective role of endoscopic therapy in patients with high-risk stigmata, and suggest that acute use of PPIs may be associated with a reduction of rebleeding in all patients, and lower mortality in patientsWith high- Risk Stigmata.

Management of patients with nonvariceal upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage before and after the adoption of the Rockall score, in the Italian Gastroenterology Units
TLDR
The Rockall score enables the clinician to formulate a more precise diagnosis and substantially shortens the time in hospital, especially for patients at low-risk of rebleeding and death, so more resources can be dedicated to critically ill patients. Expand
Use of endoscopy for management of acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding in the UK: results of a nationwide audit
TLDR
This audit has found continuing delays in performing endoscopy after AUGIB and underutilisation of standard endoscopic therapy particularly for variceal bleeding. Expand
Prokinetics in acute upper GI bleeding: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
Intravenous erythromycin or metoclopramide immediately before EGD in acute UGIB patients decreases the need for a repeat EGD, but does not improve other clinically relevant measurable outcomes. Expand
International Consensus Recommendations on the Management of Patients With Nonvariceal Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding
TLDR
Recommendations emphasize early risk stratification, by using validated prognostic scales, and early endoscopy, whereas data support attempts to dislodge clots with hemostatic, pharmacologic, or combination treatment of the underlying stigmata. Expand
Validity of the Rockall scoring system after endoscopic therapy for bleeding peptic ulcer: a prospective cohort study.
TLDR
After endoscopic therapy for a bleeding peptic ulcer, the Rockall scoring system can identify patients at high risk of death, but it is inadequate for the prediction of recurrent bleeding. Expand
