The purpose of this study is to validate the Glasgow-Blatchford score for the stratification of patients with upper gastro-intestinal hemorrhage. This score is easy to calculate. It is mainly based on the hemoglobin, blood pressure and blood urea. if the score is zero, the bleeding is very low risk and the gastrointestinal endoscopy may be delayed and performed as an outpatient.

This is a multi-center randomized controlled trial examining the use of Video Capsule Endoscopy (VCE) to discharge low-moderate risk patients with suspected upper gastrointestinal bleeds (...
Chinese patients who require gastrointestinal endoscopy will receive an intra-gastric single dose of NPO-11 20ml. The superiority of NPO-11 compared to placebo as a premedication for endos...
To evaluate the incidence and etiology of small bowel or large bowel bleeding in patients presenting with melena.
Acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) is a common cause for attendance to the Emergency Department with a wide range of clinical severity, ranging from insignificant to life-threate...
It is unclear whether a topical pharyngeal anesthesia adds any benefit to the upper gastrointestinal endoscopy under a propofol sedation. We hypothesize that a topical pharyngeal anesthesi...
Comparison of the efficacy of intravenous tranexamic acid with and without topical administration versus placebo in urgent endoscopy rate for acute gastrointestinal bleeding: A double-blind randomized controlled trial.
Tranexamic acid (TXA), a synthetic antifibrinolytic drug, is effective as a treatment for serious hemorrhage, including bleeding arising from major trauma and post-operative interventions. Significant...
Previous randomized controlled trials have reported conflicting findings comparing propofol combination therapy(PCT) with propofol monotherapy(PMT) for sedation of patients undergoing gastrointestinal...
Colonic diverticular bleeding is the most common cause of lower gastrointestinal bleeding1,2 . Appendiceal diverticulosis is an uncommon clinical entity, with an incidence of 0.004%-2% in surgical pat...
We aimed to determine the rate of hospital readmission within 30 days of non-variceal upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage (NVUGIH) and its impact on mortality, morbidity and healthcare utilization in th...
Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the gastrointestinal tract.
Bleeding in any segment of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT from ESOPHAGUS to RECTUM.
Procedures of applying ENDOSCOPES for disease diagnosis and treatment. Endoscopy involves passing an optical instrument along either natural body pathways such as the digestive tract, or through keyhole incisions to examine the interior parts of the body. With advances in imaging, endoscope, and miniaturization of endosurgical equipment, surgery can be performed during endoscopy.
Non-invasive, endoscopic imaging by use of VIDEO CAPSULE ENDOSCOPES to perform examination of the gastrointestinal tract, especially the small bowel.
Acquired degenerative dilation or expansion (ectasia) of normal BLOOD VESSELS, often associated with aging. They are isolated, tortuous, thin-walled vessels and sources of bleeding. They occur most often in mucosal capillaries of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT leading to GASTROINTESTINAL HEMORRHAGE and ANEMIA.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
