Abstract

CONCLUSION: 1. Peptic Ulcer Disease is the most common cause of Nonvariceal Upper Gastrointestinal Haemorrhage. 2. Though among patients with peptic ulcer disease the commonest lesion found was gastric ulcer, duodenal ulcers had a greater chance of re-bleed and having a protracted course. 3. Increasing age was associated with increased occurrence of rebleed and an increased duration of hospitalisation. 4. Non variceal bleeding was more common in males. 5. NSAID intake and alcohol are preventable predisposing factors for Non-variceal Upper Gastrointestinal Haemorrhage. 6. Rockall score is useful in predicting the prognosis of the patients with NVUGIH. It correlates well with the re-bleed, duration of hospitalisation, transfusion requirements and outcome.
