New data on the efficacy of proton pump inhibitors in upper gastrointestinal bleeding

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Gastric pH should be maintained at very high values to prevent peptic ulcer rebleeding. A recent randomized trial, however, has confirmed that intravenous infusion of esomeprazole decreases the rebleeding rate after endoscopic therapy. In addition, the use of proton pump inhibitor perfusion at admission before diagnostic endoscopy reduces the need for endoscopic therapy and shortens the mean length of hospital stay. © 2010 Elsevier España S.L.
