The use of the prognostic scores admits a complete evaluation of a patient with upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage and optimise the medical care. Prediction of the risk in patients with upper gastrointestinal bleeding has been the subject of different studies of several decades.

Nonvariceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding.

Risk assessment after acute upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage.

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 prognosis of patients presenting with acute bleeding is dictated by the presence of medical co-morbidities and by the severity of liver disease in patients with varices, and patients who do not respond to endoscopic therapies are best treated by TIPSS.

[Validation of the cedars-sinai score in the prediction of rebleeding and mortality in non variceal upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage].

The Cedars-Sinai score is applicable in the authors' environment and it is suitable for predicting rebleeding and mortality in patients with upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage, especially for mortality.

Comparison of Scoring Systems for the Prediction of Outcomes in Patients with Nonvariceal Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding: A Prospective Study

It is concluded that the Forrest classification was the most useful scoring system for the prediction of rebleeding and death in patients with nonvariceal UGIB.

Relevance of the Rockall score in patients undergoing endoscopic therapy for peptic ulcer haemorrhage

The Rockall score can be used to predict poor outcome in patients who undergo therapeutic endoscopy for major peptic ulcer bleeding, and it is found that those patients at greatest risk of rebleeding or death after endoscopic therapy are identified.

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

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.
