BACKGROUND & AIMS: We investigated clinical outcomes in high-risk patients with acute nonvariceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB), and determined if urgent endoscopy is effective. METHODS: Consecutive patients with a Glasgow-Blatchford score greater than 7 who underwent endoscopy for acute nonvariceal UGIB at the emergency department from January 1, 2005, to December 31, 2014, were included. Urgent (<6 h) and elective (6-48 h) endoscopies were defined according to the time to endoscopy after the initial presentation...

Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection is one of the major causes of bleeding peptic ulcer disease, which is associated with serious complications; therefore, the eradication of H. pylori is essential to prevent these devastating complications. Post-treatment follow-up is crucial to guarantee the eradication of the organism and may be conducted via the urea breath test, the stool antigen test, or a gastric biopsy. Acute massive upper gastrointestinal (UGI) bleeding is one of the most common complications of peptic ulcer disease...

INTRODUCTION: Upper gastrointestinal tract bleeding (UGIB) remains a valid issue of modern medicine. The mortality and recurrence rates remain high and have not decreased as expected over the past decades. AIM OF THE STUDY: to assess the treatment outcomes of nonvariceal UGIB depending on the timing of endoscopy (urgent vs. elective) and to perform an analysis of risk factors for death in patients with nonvariceal UGIB. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Comparative evaluation of treatment outcomes in two groups of patients...

OBJECTIVE: The aims of this study were to assess the opportunities for therapeutic endoscopy, liver biopsies, and percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) placements available to fellows during a 3-year pediatric gastroenterology fellowship, and to evaluate access to ancillary procedural-training opportunities. METHODS: Data were collected from 12 pediatric gastroenterology fellowship programs in the United States. Procedures completed in the years 2009-2011 were queried using CPT codes and endoscopy databases...

Reported incidences of bacteremia after endoscopy with esophageal variceal sclerotherapy are conflicting. A prospective controlled study was conducted to determine the frequency of bacteremia after emergency endoscopy with esophageal variceal sclerotherapy compared with frequency after elective esophageal variceal sclerotherapy and after emergency endoscopy in patients with upper gastrointestinal bleeding from nonvariceal sources. A total of 126 endoscopies were studied in 72 patients. Groups consisted of (a) emergency endoscopy without esophageal variceal sclerotherapy, 37 sessions with 36 patients; (b) elective esophageal variceal sclerotherapy, 33 sessions with 14 patients; and (c) emergency esophageal variceal sclerotherapy, 56 sessions with 36 patients...
