Will Helicobacter pylori affect short-term rebleeding rate in peptic ulcer bleeding patients after successful endoscopic therapy?


Objective:Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) can augment the pH-increasing effect of omeprazole in patients with peptic ulcer. A high intragastric pH may be helpful in preventing recurrent hemorrhage by stabilizing the blood clot at the ulcer base of bleeding peptic ulcer patients. Therefore, we hypothesized that omeprazole may reduce short-term rebleeding… (More)
