A spiral bacterium active as a human gastric pathogen. It is a gram-negative, urease-positive, curved or slightly spiral organism initially isolated in 1982 from patients with lesions of gastritis or peptic ulcers in Western Australia. Helicobacter pylori was originally classified in the genus CAMPYLOBACTER, but RNA sequencing, cellular fatty acid profiles, growth patterns, and other taxonomic characteristics indicate that the micro-organism should be included in the genus HELICOBACTER. It has been officially transferred to Helicobacter gen. nov. (see Int J Syst Bacteriol 1989 Oct;39(4):297-405).
Infections with organisms of the genus HELICOBACTER, particularly, in humans, HELICOBACTER PYLORI. The clinical manifestations are focused in the stomach, usually the gastric mucosa and antrum, and the upper duodenum. This infection plays a major role in the pathogenesis of type B gastritis and peptic ulcer disease.

Endoscopic retreatment compared with surgery in patients with recurrent bleeding after initial endoscopic control of bleeding ulcers. (1/305)

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: After endoscopic treatment to control bleeding of peptic ulcers, bleeding recurs in 15 to 20 percent of patients. In a prospective, randomized study, we compared endoscopic retreatment with surgery after initial endoscopy. Over a 40-month period, 1169 of 3473 adults who were admitted to our hospital with bleeding peptic ulcers underwent endoscopy to reestablish hemostasis. Of 100 patients with recurrent bleeding, 7 patients with cancer and 1 patient with cardiac arrest were excluded from the study; 48 patients were randomly assigned to undergo immediate endoscopic retreatment and 44 were assigned to undergo surgery. The type of operation used was left to the surgeon. Bleeding was considered to have recurred in the event of any one of the following: vomiting of fresh blood, hypotension and melena, or a requirement for more than four units of blood in the 72-hour period after endoscopic treatment. RESULTS: Of the 48 patients who were assigned to endoscopic retreatment, 35 had long-term control of bleeding. Thirteen underwent salvage surgery, 11 because retreatment failed and 2 because of perforations resulting from thermocoagulation. Five patients in the endoscopy group died within 30 days, as compared with eight patients in the surgery group (P=0.37). Seven patients in the endoscopy group (including 6 who underwent salvage surgery) had complications, as compared with 16 in the surgery group (P=0.03). The duration of hospitalization, the need for hospitalization in the intensive care unit and the resultant duration of that stay, and the number of blood transfusions were similar in the two groups. In multivariate analysis, hypotension at randomization (P=0.01) and an ulcer size of at least 2 cm (P=0.03) were independent factors predictive of the failure of endoscopic retreatment. CONCLUSIONS: In patients with peptic ulcers and recurrent bleeding after initial endoscopic control of bleeding, endoscopic retreatment reduces the need for surgery without increasing the risk of death and is associated with fewer complications than is surgery.  (+info)

Prevalence and cost of hospitalization for gastrointestinal complications related to peptic ulcers with bleeding or perforation: comparison of two national databases. (2/305)

The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence and cost of hospitalization for upper gastrointestinal complications, including peptic ulcers with hemorrhage or perforation. Upper gastrointestinal complications and corresponding economic data were obtained from two sources. The first was a 20% sample of all community hospital discharges (about 6 million per year) from 11 states for 1991 and 1992 Hospital Cost Utilization Project; HCUP-3). The second source of data was a claims database for employees of large US corporations and their dependents for 1992, 1993, and 1994 (about 3.5 million covered lives per year; MarketScan). A group of ICD-9 codes for the diagnosis of peptic and gastroduodenal ulcers with bleeding or perforation were used to identify hospital admissions because of upper gastrointestinal complications. Similar patterns were observed across the MarketScan and HCUP-3 databases regarding hospitalization with diagnoses related to gastrointestinal complications identified according to the ICD-9 codes. The average age of patients with upper gastrointestinal complications was 66 years in the HCUP-3 database and 52 years in the MarketScan database. The average annual rates of upper gastrointestinal complications as a primary or secondary diagnosis were 6.4 and 6.7 per 1000 discharges for 1991 and 1992, respectively (HCUP-3), and 4.3, 4.2, and 4.9 per 1000 admissions for 1992, 1993, and 1994, respectively (MarketScan). The average length of stay for upper gastrointestinal complications as a primary diagnosis was 7.8 days in 1991 and 7.5 days in 1992 (HCUP-3) and 6.1, 5.1, and 5.1 days in 1992, 1993, and 1994, respectively (MarketScan). The national average total charge for hospitalization for gastrointestinal problems as a primary diagnosis was $12,970 in 1991 and $14,294 in 1992 (HCUP-3). The average total reimbursement for hospitalizations related to upper gastrointestinal problems was $15,309 in 1992, $12,987 in 1993, and $13,150 in 1994 (MarketScan). Hospital admissions for upper gastrointestinal complications are expensive. The rate and cost per admission are higher for the older population. The results on the elements covered by both databases are consistent. Therefore the databases complement each other on the type of information abstracted.  (+info)

Comparison of adrenaline injection and bipolar electrocoagulation for the arrest of peptic ulcer bleeding. (3/305)

BACKGROUND: Peptic ulcers with active bleeding or a non-bleeding visible vessel require aggressive endoscopic treatment. AIMS: To determine whether endoscopic adrenaline injection alone or contact probe therapy following injection is a suitable treatment for peptic ulcer bleeding. METHODS: A total of 96 patients with active bleeding or non-bleeding visible vessels received adrenaline alone, bipolar electrocoagulation alone, or combined treatment (n=32 in each group). RESULTS: Initial haemostasis was not achieved in one patient in the adrenaline group, two in the gold probe group, and two in the injection gold probe group (p>0.1). Rebleeding episodes were fewer in the injection gold probe group (2/30, 6.7%) than in the gold probe group (9/30, 30%, p=0.04) and in the adrenaline group (11/31, 35.5%, p=0.01). Treatment failure (other therapy required) was rarer in the injection gold probe group (4/32, 12.5%) than in the adrenaline group (12/32, 37.5%, p=0.04). The volume of blood transfused after entry of the study was less in the injection gold probe group (mean 491 ml) than in the adrenaline group (1548 ml, p<0. 0001) and the gold probe group (1105 ml, p<0.01). Duration of hospital stay, numbers of patients requiring urgent surgery, and death rate were not statistically different among the three groups. CONCLUSIONS: For patients with peptic ulcer bleeding, combined adrenaline injection and gold probe treatment offers an advantage in preventing rebleeding and decreasing the need for blood transfusion.  (+info)

Helicobacter pylori infection is a protective factor for bleeding gastric ulcers but not for bleeding duodenal ulcers in NSAID users. (4/305)

BACKGROUND: The effect of Helicobacter pylori infection on NSAID-induced gastroduodenal damage is unclear. AIM: To determine the role of H. pylori and NSAID use in complicated peptic ulcers. METHODS: A total of 185 consecutive patients with bleeding peptic ulcers and 185 hospitalized matched controls were studied prospectively. Additionally, 75 consecutive uncomplicated peptic ulcers and 75 community controls were also studied. Active H. pylori infection was determined by urea breath test and/or both urease test and histology. Serum CagA and VacA status were determined at random in 135 infected patients and 82 controls. NSAID use was determined by structured data collection. RESULTS: H. pylori (odds ratio [OR]=5. 98; 2.9-12.3) and NSAID use (OR=5.74; 3.4-9.7) were independent risk factors for duodenal ulcer bleeding, whereas NSAID use was the main risk factor for bleeding gastric ulcers (OR=12.4; 5.5-27.9). Interaction of both factors was associated with reduced risk for bleeding gastric ulcers (OR=0.19; 0.04-0.88) but not for bleeding duodenal ulcers, which showed a similar risk to any one factor alone. This was observed for all types of NSAID use, including low-dose aspirin, and infection by CagA positive strains. H. pylori was the only factor involved in common uncomplicated duodenal ulcers. CONCLUSION: Interaction of both H. pylori infection and NSAID use decreases the risk of bleeding due to gastric ulcers, but not that due to duodenal ulcers.  (+info)

Peptic ulcer bleeding: accessory risk factors and interactions with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. (5/305)

AIMS: To determine risk factors for peptic ulcer bleeding other than non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Methods-Data on possible antecedent risk factors obtained in a large case control study of 1121 patients admitted to hospitals in Glasgow, Newcastle, Nottingham, Oxford, and Portsmouth with bleeding peptic ulcers were compared with the same information obtained in 989 population controls. Data were analysed by logistic regression with the calculation of odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI). RESULTS: From a logistic regression model, oral anticoagulants (OR 7. 8; 95% CI 2.8-21.5), previous peptic ulcer (3.8; 2.6-4.9), treatment for heart failure (5.9; 2.3-13.1), oral corticosteroid use (2.7; 1. 3-4.5), treatment for diabetes (3.1; 1.2-4.3), and current smoking (1.6; 1.2-2.0) were all independent risk factors. No association was found with use of calcium channel antagonists. Odds ratios for concomitant NSAID usage were multiplicative with the exception of current smoking. CONCLUSIONS: Some 45% of admissions for peptic ulcer bleeding in England and Wales in those aged 60 or more are calculated to be attributable to, or associated with, these accessory risk factors, which, together with those associated with aspirin or other NSAID use will account for over 80% of predisposing factors to ulcer bleeding.  (+info)

Risk of ulcer bleeding in patients infected with Helicobacter pylori taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. (6/305)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether Helicobacter pylori is an independent risk factor for bleeding peptic ulcer in users of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), including aspirin. DESIGN: A prospective matched case-control study. SETTING: Odense University Hospital, Denmark. SUBJECTS: 132 patients with a bleeding peptic ulcer (n=124) or haemorrhagic gastritis (n=8) at endoscopy who had taken an NSAID in the previous week and 136 controls who had taken NSAIDs without gastrointestinal complications. The controls were recruited from rheumatology and geriatric outpatient clinics. MEASUREMENTS: H pylori status assessed by serology and 13C-urea breath test and regarded as positive if either test was positive. Data on potential confounding factors including smoking and alcohol were collected by interview. MAIN RESULT: H pylori was present in 57% of cases and 43% of controls. The adjusted odds ratio of bleeding from a peptic ulcer owing to H pylori infection in NSAID users was 1.81 (95% CI 1.02 to 3.21) and was similar in aspirin and non-aspirin NSAID users. Peptic ulcer bleeding was also statistically significantly associated with a history of previous ulcer bleeding, dyspepsia within the previous 3 months, drinking alcohol but not with smoking. About 16% of bleeding peptic ulcers in NSAID users could be attributed to H pylori infection. CONCLUSION: NSAID users infected with H pylori have an almost doubled risk of bleeding peptic ulcer compared with uninfected NSAID users.  (+info)

Low sensitivity of invasive tests for the detection of Helicobacter pylori infection in patients with bleeding ulcer. (7/305)

BACKGROUND: A high false negative rate for antral infection with Helicobacter pylori when assessed by rapid urease test has recently been reported in patients with bleeding ulcer. This result could partly explain the differing prevalence of H. pylori infection in bleeding and non-bleeding ulcers. AIMS: To evaluate the accuracy of a rapid urease test (UT), histology and culture for detection of H. pylori in antral biopsies from acute bleeding peptic ulcer patients using a serological test as reference. PATIENTS AND METHODS: All consecutive patients with active bleeding gastric or duodenal ulcer at endoscopic examination admitted in six university hospitals in France were considered for inclusion. Five antral biopsies were taken during the diagnostic endoscopy for UT, culture and histology. A blood sample was taken for H. pylori serology. RESULTS: One hundred and eighty one patients were included and 129 (71%) had a positive serology. The sensitivity of UT, histology and culture for detection of H. pylori infection were 41%, 33% and 34%, respectively. The sensitivity and specificity of the combination of the three invasive tests were 48.8% (95% CI: 40.2-57.4) and 90.6% (95% CI: 82. 6-99) respectively. In the 52 serologically negative patients, only 5 had at least one invasive positive test. The sensitivity of the invasive tests decreased significantly with age but was not influenced by NSAIDs intake. Of 80 patients with a positive serological test and negative histological evaluation for H. pylori, chronic antral inflammation was found in 70 patients (87%). In 46 patients with both negative serological test and H. pylori negative test according to histology, only 13 (28%) had chronic antral inflammation. CONCLUSIONS: The sensitivity of invasive tests for detection of H. pylori is low during acute ulcer bleeding, and they should be used with caution in this condition. A serological test is recommended to identify patients with H. pylori infection in spite of negative invasive tests.  (+info)

Overall mortality among patients surviving an episode of peptic ulcer bleeding. (8/305)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: The authors investigated whether patients who have survived an acute episode of peptic ulcer bleeding (PUB) have an excess long term all cause mortality compared with the general population free of PUB. DESIGN: Follow up study of previously identified cohort of patients with a PUB episode and a general population cohort. SETTING: The source population included all people aged 30 to 89 years, registered with general practitioners in the United Kingdom. PATIENTS: All patients alive one month after the PUB episode constituted the cohort of PUB patients (n = 978). A control group of 5000 people was randomly sampled from the source population. The same eligibility criteria as for patients with PUB were applied to the control series. Also, controls had to be free of PUB before start date. MAIN RESULTS: Relative risk of mortality among PUB patients was 2.1, 95% CI: 1.7, 2.6) compared with the general population. This increased mortality risk occurred mainly in the patients less than 60 years old. No difference was observed between men and women. The excess mortality was not only circumscribed to deaths attributable to recurrent gastrointestinal bleed, but also cardiovascular, cancer and other causes. CONCLUSIONS: People who have survived an acute episode of PUB have a reduced long term survival compared with the general population. This reduction was stronger among middle age patients than in the elderly.  (+info)

One hundred and twenty patients presenting with major peptic ulcer haemorrhage were randomised in a clinical trial comparing endoscopic injection and heater probe therapy. The two groups were well matched with regards to age, admission haemoglobin concentration, the presence of shock, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug usage and endoscopic findings. Permanent haemostasis was achieved in 87% of the injection group and 85% of the heater probe group. Hospital mortality, transfusion requirement and duration of admission were similar in both groups. Endoscopic injection and the heater probe represent equally effective therapy for peptic ulcer bleeding.

Most common cause of massive upper GI hemorrhage. • 20% of patients with PUD will have a bleeding episode, accounting for 40% of deaths from PUD. • Chronic gastric and duodenal ulcers have about the same tendency to bleed, more severe bleeding with gastric ulcers. • Bleeding duodenal ulcers are usually located on the posterior surface of the duodenal bulb and erode into the gastroduodenal artery. • Rebleeding in the hospital has been attended by a death rate of about 30%. • Gastric ulcer rebleed 3 times more commonly than duodenal ulcers. • Most instances of rebleeding occur within 2 days from the time the first episode has stopped ...
Forty cases of upper gastrointestinal bleeding were studied. Twenty-three patients had shock and active bleeding (3 spurting, 12 oozing and 2 a clot with oozing) or stigmata of recent hemorrhage (4 with a clot and 2 with a visible vessel). Nineteen of these were submitted to endoscopic injection. In 4 cases with multiple acute hemorrhagic lesions and shock, and in 17 patients with stigmata of recent bleeding without shock, the technique was not carried out. None of the patients had a rebleed. One patient was submitted to surgery 24 hours after injection for a large acute gastric ulcer in the process of perforating, and died of pulmonary embolism 4 days later. No technique-related complications were observed. We believe endoscopic injection treatment might be the technique of choice in patients with shock and active bleeding or stigmata of recent hemorrhage of the upper gastrointestinal tract.
The study by Chan and colleagues addresses an important topic-the use of an NSAID plus a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) compared with a selective cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 agent to prevent GI complications in high-risk patients with rheumatoid or osteoarthritis. Celecoxib was associated with fewer GI complications than diclofenac plus omeprazole. However, the main difference between the 2 treatments was the lower frequency of anemia in the celecoxib group, presumably ...
They also used the Clinical Outcome Research Initiative (CORI) database to correlate their single institution data with nationwide data. The team found that 32% of patients had peptic ulcers. A non-bleeding visible vessel was present in 10% of these peptic ulcers. The team obtained data on 7822 patients with upper-GI bleeding using the CORI database.. For these patients, endoscopy established that 21% had peptic ulcers, and a non-bleeding visible vessel was present in 7% of the ulcers. Dr Somprak Boonpongmanee s team concluded, The frequency of peptic ulcer in patients with upper-GI bleeding and the proportion of bleeding ulcers with a non-bleeding visible vessel are less than previously reported . ...
Intravenous proton-pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy is a cornerstone of modern therapy for bleeding peptic ulcers. However, prior to this 2000 study by Lau et al., the role of PPIs in the prevention of recurrent bleeding after endoscopic treatment was unclear. At the time, re-bleeding rates after endoscopic treatment were noted to be approximately 15-20%. Although other studies had approached this question, no high-quality, large, blinded RCT had examined adjuvant PPI use immediately following endoscopic treatment.. The study enrolled patients who had a bleeding gastroduodenal ulcer visualized on endoscopy and in whom hemostasis was achieved following epinephrine injection and thermocoagulation. Enrollees were randomized to treatment with either omeprazole 80mg IV bolus followed by 8mg/hr infusion x72 hours then followed by omeprazole 20mg PO x8 weeks or to placebo bolus + drip x72 hours followed by omeprazole 20mg PO x8 weeks. The primary outcome was recurrent bleeding within 30 days. Secondary ...

In the study, MRI was used on average a week after the initial injury, and then again after three and 12 months. The aim was to see how bleeding (so-called micro-haemorrhages) and non-bleeding traumatic axonal lesions develop over time.. Previously it has been common to use MRI relatively late. But we have had a certain suspicion that we have missed parts of the injuries because they disappear from the MR images over time, Moen explains.. In particular we saw that the non-bleeding lesions disappeared. Many of the lesions had disappeared at the three-month examination, whereas the bleeding lesions started to disappear at the 12-month examination.. Moen and his colleagues are now conducting a study involving 128 patients looking at the impact of visible traumatic axonal lesions on patient prognosis, and also plan studies in which non-visible lesions, which can be measured using the technique diffusion-MRI, are mapped. One of the goals is to investigate which lesions have the greatest impact ...

Special studies of the heart were conducted at necropsy of two young soldiers who had died suddenly and unexpectedly. In the first case there was extensive myocarditis, an atretic main left coronary artery, special large interarterial anastomoses including the sinus node artery, old fibrosis in the His bundle and recent hemorrhages in the internodal pathways. In the second case there was a markedly narrowed atrioventricular (A-V) node artery with disruptive fibrosis of the left and right bundle branches, and lacunar faults in the central fibrous body near the A-V node. These dissimilar findings are discussed relative to the pathophysiological basis of sudden death.. ...

Eleven of 20 patients who re-bled had repeat endoscopic haemostasis. Patients who received repeat endoscopic haemostasis had a higher prevalence of co-morbidity than those who underwent emergency surgery immediately. The position of the ulcer and ease of endoscopic haemostasis at initial endoscopy also appears to have been a factor in the decision whether to refer a patient for immediate surgery or repeat endoscopy as those cases with a difficult ulcer location are over-represented in the group who received immediate surgery. Forty five per cent of the patients who had repeat endoscopic haemostasis eventually required salvage surgery compared with 27% of patients who had repeat endoscopic haemostasis for re-bleeding in the RCT performed by Lau et al.21 Furthermore, the failed repeat endoscopic haemostasis group had a significantly higher transfusion rate and longer inpatient stay compared with those who had immediate surgery (table 3). Although mortality rates in the immediate surgery and ...

The effects of iron deficiency on red blood cell transfusion requirements in non-bleeding critically ill patients., Mustafa Said Aydogan, Muharrem Uçar, Aytaç Yücel, Bugra Karak
This guideline provides recommendations for the management of patients with acute overt lower gastrointestinal bleeding. Hemodynamic status should be initially assessed with intravascular volume resuscitation started as needed. Risk stratification based on clinical parameters should be performed to help distinguish patients at high- and low-risk of adverse outcomes. Hematochezia associated with hemodynamic instability may be indicative of an upper gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding source and thus warrants an upper endoscopy. In the majority of patients, colonoscopy should be the initial diagnostic procedure and should be performed within 24 h of patient presentation after adequate colon preparation. Endoscopic hemostasis therapy should be provided to patients with high-risk endoscopic stigmata of bleeding including active bleeding, non-bleeding visible vessel, or adherent clot. The endoscopic hemostasis modality used (mechanical, thermal, injection, or combination) is most often guided by the ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Bleeding peptic ulcer. T2 - experience with endoscopic therapy. AU - Hariif, K.. AU - Kandasami, P.. AU - Haruna Rashid, Hanafiah. PY - 2002/6/1. Y1 - 2002/6/1. N2 - Bleeding is a serious complication of peptic ulcer and mortality rate has remained at approximately 10% or more. Traditionally surgeons selected patients who were at significant risk of continued or re-bleeding and advocated early surgery. However, patients with bleeding peptic ulcers are generally elderly with coexisting medical illness and surgery results in significant morbidity and mortality. In the last decade, endoscopic haemostatic therapy has been effective in arresting the bleeding with surgical option considered only after endoscopic treatment has failed. We report the outcome of 196 patients who were endoscopically diagnosed to have bleeding from peptic ulcers. One hundred and thirty patients were to have active bleeding or recent bleed from the ulcer. Endoscopic adrenaline injection therapy was used in 53 ...
The panel recommends stratifying all patients into low- and high-risk categories for rebleeding and mortality. They suggest blood transfusions for patients with hemoglobin levels less than 70 g/L. They recommend early endoscopy for most patients and recommend against routine use of promotility agents before endoscopy. They advise endoscopic hemostasis treatment of high-risk lesions, intravenous high-dose proton-pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy after successful endoscopic hemostasis, and hospitalization for at least 72 hours after endoscopic hemostasis. Patients at low risk for rebleeding on the basis of clinical characteristics and endoscopic findings can be discharged promptly after endoscopy. All patients should be tested for Helicobacter pylori infection, but if negative test results are obtained in the acute setting, then tests should be repeated. Routine second-look endoscopy is not recommended. The panel advises combining a PPI with a cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor for patients who have ...
Peptic ulcer treatment is a process of trying to find the most effective form of treatment. It is very common for ulcers to develop in the digestive tract. Peptic ulcer is an inflammation of the intestines that is caused by an overproduction of gastric acid or pepsin in the system. The most common form of Peptic ulcer treatment is a course of antibiotics that are used in the digestive tract.. Peptic ulcer can be diagnosed through a blood test called a blood confirmation. This is a test that will look at the blood count, serum chemistry and HbA1c (hebumconazole acetate) level in your blood.
