CURDIA-GONCALVES, Tiago; ROSA, Bruno  and  COTTER, José. New insights on an old medical emergency: non-portal hypertension related upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Rev. esp. enferm. dig. [online]. 2016, vol.108, n.10, pp.648-656. ISSN 1130-0108.

Upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) is a potentially life-threatening condition and the most common medical emergency managed by gastroenterologists. Despite being one of the most antique medical problems, recent studies have been slowly changing the management of these patients, which should nowadays include not only initial resuscitation, but also risk stratification, pre-endoscopic therapy, endoscopy treatment, and post-procedure care. The aim of this paper is to review the extended approach to the patient with non-portal hypertension related UGIB.

Keywords : Upper gastrointestinal bleeding.
