RODRIGUEZ SANCHEZ-MIGALLON, Joaquín et al. Are anti-secretory drugs useful for the management of non-variceal upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage?. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2009, vol.2, n.8, pp.408-411. ISSN 1699-695X.
Non-variceal upper gastrointestinal hamorrhage, is the most frequent cause of gastrointestinal bleeding and is a common presentation in emergency departments. Medical treatment based on the use of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), together with endoscopic therapy has been shown to significantly lower rates of rebleeding and improve survival in these patients. Two decades after the marketing of PPIs there is still controversy as to dosage and method of administration for patients with gastrointestinal bleeding of peptic origin.
