ASGE Guidelines 2012 We recommend that patients with UGIB be adequately resuscitated before endoscopy. We recommend antisecretory therapy with PPIs for PUD Bleeding or in those with suspected PUD bleeding awaiting endoscopy. We suggest prokinetic agents in patients with a high probability of having fresh blood or a clot in the stomach when undergoing endoscopy. We recommend endoscopy to diagnose etiology of acute UGIB. The timing of endoscopy should depend on clinical factors. Urgent endoscopy (within 24 hours of presen-tion) is recommended for patients with a history of malignancy or cirrhosis, presentation with hematemesis&signs of hypovolemia including hypotension, tachycardia&shock, &Hb 8 g/dL.
ASGE Guidelines 2012 We recommend endoscopic therapy for PU with high-risk stigmata (active spurting, visible vessel). The management of PUD with an adherent clot is controversial &recommended endoscopic treatments include inj (sclerosants, thrombin, fibrin, or cyanoacrylate glue), cautery, & mechanical therapies. We recommend against epinephrine inj alone for PU bleeding. If epinephrine inj is performed, it should be combined with a second endoscopic treatment modality (eg, cautery or clips). We recommend low-risk lesions be considered for OP TRT. We recommend against routine second-look endoscopy in patients who have received adequate endoscopic therapy. We recommend repeat OGD for patients with evidence of recurrent bleeding.
Summary Adequate resuscitation. Risk stratification . Early endoscopy to enable further risk stratification. Application of endotherapy to high-risk lesions to achieve hemostasis &downgrade stigmata. Injection of epinephrine alone is not optimal when treating all high-risk lesions which needs in addition one of the other endoscopic hemostatic modalities as APC or cliping. All endoscopic hemostasis should be complemented by a 72-hour infusion of high dose PPI. All patients should be tested for H pylori & treated if necessary, Secondary prophylaxis should be considered for appropriate patients ie PPI covering asp/NSAIDs requiring patients.
