Abstract

BACKGROUND/AIMS: We conducted this study to find the clinical characteristics of ulcer bleeding that occurred in patients who had been taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and to evaluate the influences of NSAIDs on clinical outcomes. METHODS: Between January 2000 and December 2002, a total of 310 patients with ulcer bleeding were analyzed. Study group composed of 49 patients who had taken NSAIDs regularly for at least 4 weeks before the admission. Other 261 patients who had not taken NSAIDs were classified as control group. Relevant informations were obtained from the medical records. RESULTS: Of the NSAIDs group, aspirin was the most common medication. The mean age and the proportion of females in the NSAIDs group were significantly higher than those of the control group. Prevalence of co-morbid illness was significantly higher in the NSAIDs group than in the control group (85.7% vs 30.7%, p<.001). The severity of bleeding which was assessed by hemoglobin level at presentation, amount of transfusion, and duration of admission, was not different between two groups. There were no significant differences in frequency of re-bleeding, urgent surgery, and mortality. CONCLUSIONS: Ulcer bleeding among patients taking NSAIDs occurred more frequently in older females with co- morbid illness. However, NSAIDs is not associated with higher morbidity and mortality.
