Gastrointestinal bleeding is a common cause for presentation in the emergency room and hospitalization. The bleeding is usually categorized to upper or lower gastrointestinal bleeding. The purpose of this review article is to provide an overview of the incidence of gastrointestinal bleeding, etiology, risk factors, role of antithrombotics, evaluation of the severity of bleeding, therapy and outcome. Emphasis will be put on gastrointestinal bleeding within the Icelandic health care system but also in broader...
Hemosuccus pancreaticus (HP) describes hemorrhage originating from the pancreatic duct. HP is an extremely uncommon source of upper gastrointestinal bleeding and is often misdiagnosed in most community hospitals. HP is believed to be associated with arterial aneurysm, pancreatitis (acute or chronic), local inflammation, pseudocyst, and tumor or cystic neoplasms. We report a case of a 62-year-old man with multiple cysts in the pancreas on CT scan who presented with an obscure upper GI bleed in which we perf...
Upper gastrointestinal bleeding is an urgent entity associated with a high mortality of about 10 %. Its urgent management includes medical interventions such as volume repletion, blood transfusions, the use of proton pump inhibitors, as well as upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. Whilst the benefit of esophago-gastro-duodenoscopy is clearly demonstrated, the ideal timing for this intervention is less well established. Initial management and pharmacological interventions are important and well-integrated int...
Bleeding can cause significant morbidity in patients with upper gastrointestinal malignancies. Palliative radiotherapy can palliate bleeding effectively across numerous cancer sites such as the lung and rectum. The data available regarding the role in bleeding from upper gastrointestinal cancers are limited to a single meta-analysis, a phase 2 trial, eleven retrospective cohorts and two case reports, with the majority focusing on gastric cancer. From the data available radiotherapy appears to be a well-tole...
There is limited evidence on the efficacy of hemostatic powders in the management of upper gastrointestinal bleeding.
Gastrointestinal bleeding (GIB) is one of the most common medical emergencies. We investigated the overall mortality after GIB in our institute and analyzed the prognostic factors in upper GIB (UGIB) and lower GIB (LGIB) separately.
This update of the 2010 International Consensus Recommendations on the Management of Patients With Nonvariceal Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding (UGIB) refines previous important statements and presents new clinically relevant recommendations.
Upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) is a common condition that can lead to significant morbidity and mortality. Critical care physicians usually get involved in the care of patients with severe UGIB that is associated with hemodynamic compromise. We aim to provide the readers with evidence-based review of the management of patients with severe UGIB.
: Upper tract gastrointestinal system (GIS) bleeding is considered as an important cause of morbidity and mortality despite modern and advanced endoscopic interventions. In patients with thrombotic state and vitamin D deficiency, vitamin D analogs and vitamin D receptor activators have been determined as adjunctive anticoagulant treatment in previous studies. However, these studies did not evaluate or reveal the possible bleeding diathesis. In this article, we evaluated the vitamin D status in patients with...
The test characteristics of blood urea concentration in the identification of upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) or high-risk endoscopic lesions have not been clearly determined. This study aimed to elucidate if urea independently correlates with the presence of positive endoscopic findings in cases of presumed UGIB and understand the diagnostic value of this parameter when assessing a patient with potential UGIB.
Risk stratification in acute variceal bleeding: Comparison of the AIMS65 score to established upper gastrointestinal bleeding and liver disease severity risk stratification scoring systems in predicting mortality and rebleeding.
Risk stratification is recommended in all patients with acute variceal bleeding (AVB). It remains unclear whether liver disease severity or upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) scoring algorithms offer superior predictive ability. We aimed to validate the AIMS65 score as a predictor of mortality in AVB, and to compare AIMS65 with established UGIB and liver disease severity risk stratification scores.
Upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) is a common cause of hospital admission and red cell transfusion is frequently required. A large single-centre randomised study from 2013 showed that a restrictive transfusion strategy in UGIB management was associated with better outcomes compared to a liberal strategy. Subsequently multiple international guidelines favour a restrictive transfusion strategy. However, given the multiple exclusion criteria in the study, generalisation to everyday practice was unclear.
Angiodysplasia (AD) is a common source of gastrointestinal bleeding. Yet, little is known about factors forwarding bleeding in these vascular malformations. The presented study aims to determine risk factors for bleeding that occurs only in patients with symptomatic, but not with asymptomatic, AD.
We investigated the computed tomographic characteristics of gastrointestinal air motion artifact (GIAMA), which can be misinterpreted as active gastrointestinal bleeding.
Meckel's diverticulum, a congenital malformation of the gastrointestinal tract, is asymptomatic in the majority of patients but can be associated with some complications. Gastrointestinal bleeding is one such complication and is more common in children than in adults. Despite the variety of examinations available, diagnosis can be difficult, especially in older patients, because the sensitivity of examinations decreases with patient age. Here we present the case of a young man with gastrointestinal bleeding...
Visceral artery aneurysms are rare in infants and children. The majority of cases are caused by genetic syndromes, trauma, or infection. Although the majority of aneurysms are asymptomatic, visceral artery aneurysms can present with abdominal pain, nausea/vomiting, or rupture. Aneurysm rupture can manifest as hemodynamic instability and/or gastrointestinal bleeding. We present the case of a congenital idiopathic aneurysm of the superior mesenteric artery in a 6-week-old infant who presented with gastrointes...
Aspirin inhibits platelet function and may therefore accelerate early lower gastrointestinal bleeding (LGIB) from colorectal cancer (CRC) precursor polyps. The bleeding may increase endoscopic polyp detection.
We tried to identify a possible correlation between meteorological factors and the frequency of gastrointestinal bleeding (GIB).
Dabigatran etexilate, a direct thrombin inhibitor, is now frequently used for long-term pharmacological prevention of stroke or systemic embolism in patients with atrial fibrillation. However, such long-term dabigatran therapy (DT) significantly increases the risk of upper gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. This increased risk of gastric bleeds might be reduced with gastroprotective agents, such as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). PPIs coadministrated with dabigatran reduce the risk of upper GI bleeding in patie...
TC-325, an endoscopic hemostatic powder, exhibits possible benefits in patients with malignant gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. The aim is to assess feasibility and determine estimates of efficacy of TC-325 compared with standard of care (SOC) in terms of initial hemostasis and recurrent bleeding rates in comparable groups of patients with malignant GI bleeding.
Scoring systems are suboptimal for determining risk in patients with gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB); these might be improved by a machine learning model. We used machine learning to develop a model to calculate risk of hospital-based intervention or death in patients with UGIB and compared its performance with other scoring systems.
