Changes of gastric ulcer bleeding in the metropolitan area of Japan.

Changes of gastric ulcer bleeding in the metropolitan area of Japan. World J Gastroenterol. 2019 Nov 14;25(42):6342-6353 Authors: Kubosawa Y, Mori H, Kinoshita S, Nakazato Y, Fujimoto A, Kikuchi M, Nishizawa T, Suzuki M, Suzuki H Abstract BACKGROUND: The two main causes of gastric ulcer bleeding are Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection and ulcerogenic medicines, although the number of cases caused by each may vary with age. In Japan, the rate of H. pylori infection has fallen over the last decade and the number of prescriptions for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and antithrombotic drugs is increasing as the population ages. Methods of treatment for gastric ulcer bleeding have advanced with the advent of hemostatic forceps and potassium-competitive acid blocker (P-CAB). Thus, causes and treatments for gastric ulcer bleeding have changed over the last decade. AIM: To examine the trends of gastric ulcer bleeding over 10 years in the metropolitan area of Japan. METHODS: This is a single-center retrospective study. A total of 564 patients were enrolled from inpatients admitted to our hospital with gastric ulcer bleeding between 2006 and 2016. Age, medication history, H. pylori infection, method of treatment, rate of rebleeding, and the length of hospitalization were analyzed. Factors associated with gastric ulcer bleeding were evaluated using Fisher's exact test, Pearson's Chi-squared test or Student's t-test as appropriate. The...

CONCLUSIONS: If the results are confirmed in further studies, iCEB seems to be a simple, easily measurable and non-invasive marker to predict cannabinoid-induced ventricular arrhythmias. PMID: 32472984 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: Our present study indicated, for the first time, that ABS could act against H. pylori. ABS is clinically used for the management of GI bleeding due to benign and malignant GI lesions. Thus, the possible anti-H. pylori effect of ABS shall expand the therapeutic spectrum of the drug in GI lesions in relation to H. pylori infection such as peptic ulser disease (PUD) and lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphomagenesis.

Abstract INTRODUCTION: The introduction of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) into clinical practice has greatly improved our therapeutic approach to acid-related diseases for their efficacy and safety. Areas Covered:The following evidence-based indications for PPI use are acknowledged by many scientific societies: treatment of the various forms and complications of gastroesophageal reflux disease, eradication of H. pylori infection in combination with two or more antibiotics, short- and long-term therapy of H. pylori-negative peptic ulcers, healing and prevention of NSAID/COXIB-associated gastric ulcers, co-therapy wi...

This study was registered with, number NCT00153660. Findings Between May 24, 2005, and Nov 28, 2012, we enrolled 514 patients, assigning 257 patients to each study group, all of whom were included in the intention-to-treat population. Recurrent upper gastrointestinal bleeding occurred in 14 patients in the celecoxib group (nine gastric ulcers and five duodenal ulcers) and 31 patients in the naproxen group (25 gastric ulcers, three duodenal ulcers, one gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer, and two bleeding erosions). The cumulative incidence of recurrent bleeding in 18 months was 5·6% (95% CI 3·...

Abstract The mortality in elderly patients over the age of 80 years with peptic ulcers in the case of complications, such as bleeding and perforation is higher than in the general population. Duodenal ulcers are associated with Helicobacter pylori infections in 90% of cases and in 70% of gastric ulcers. The treatment of elderly patients is often difficult due to multimorbidity and polypharmacy and necessitates a geriatric approach. Ulcers are often caused by medication with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and acetylsalicylic acid. Despite the fact that progress in therapy has improved the preval...

CONCLUSIONS: PUB was more common in older patients, and there was a clear gender difference in gastric ulcer bleeding by age. With a proper OD using PUB diagnostic codes, we can identify true patients with sufficiently high sensitivity and PPV. PMID: 27554214 [PubMed - in process]

Summary BackgroundVonoprazan, a potassium‐competitive acid blocker, is expected to improve the healing of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD)‐induced gastric ulcers compared with proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). AimTo compare the healing status of ESD‐induced gastric ulcers and the incidence of post‐ESD bleeding between subjects treated with vonoprazan for 5 weeks and those treated with PPIs for 8 weeks. MethodsPatients in the vonoprazan group (n = 75) were prospectively enrolled, whereas patients in the PPI group (n = 150) were selected for a 2:1 matched historical control cohort according to baseline characteris...

Abstract AIM: To investigate the clinical characteristics and outcomes of idiopathic Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori)-negative and drug-negative] peptic ulcer bleeding (PUB). METHODS: A consecutive series of patients who experienced PUB between 2006 and 2012 was retrospectively analyzed. A total of 232 patients were enrolled in this study. The patients were divided into four groups according to the etiologies of PUB: idiopathic, H. pylori-associated, drug-induced and combined (H. pylori-associated and drug-induced) types. We compared the clinical characteristics and outcomes between the groups. When the silver...

A 54-year-old woman taking long-term nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs presented with coffee ground emesis and melena. She was tachycardic; the physical examination was otherwise unremarkable. Laboratory evaluation showed a nadir hemoglobin of 7.8 g/dL from a baseline of 11.0 g/dL. EGD was performed, which revealed a large, 2-cm, clean-based ulcer with a fibrotic base in the gastric fundus (A). Biopsy specimens for Helicobacter pylori showed negative results. The patient experienced no recurrent bleeding during hospitalization and was treated with twice-daily doses of a proton pump inhibitor for 8 weeks.
