Groups/Cohorts
Non NSAID non-Hp
Patient of history of peptic ulcer bleeding with Hp-ve and without prior history of taking NSAID or Aspirin within 30 days
Helicobacter pylori +ve
Patient with Hp+ve at peptic ulcer bleeding

Detailed Description:

Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAID), Non-Helicobacter pylori (HP) bleeding peptic ulcers are relatively common in the West (11%-44%). It is uncommon in Hong Kong (4%). Significant number of these patients with non-NSAID, non-Hp bleeding ulcers had co-morbid illness and many had life-threatening conditions. Our recent study showed that there is an increasing incidence of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID), non-Helicobacter pylori (Hp) bleeding peptic ulcers. There is no datum on the natural course of these patients and this is our aim to have this observational study.
