Active Comparator: TAE group
Patients will be undergone TAE after endoscopic hemostasis.
The procedure will be performed within 12 hours of endoscopic therapy. This is usually performed under conscious sedation
Other Name: Transarterial embolization
Active Comparator: No TAE group
No TAE procedure will be performed after endoscopic treatment.
Procedure: No TAE
No TAE procedure will be performed after endoscopic treatment
- clinical re-bleeding [ Time Frame: within 30 days of therapy ]
Clinical rebleeding is defined by fresh hematemesis, fresh melena or hematochezia and signs of hypovolemic shock (systolic blood pressure of <90mmHg and pulse rate >110 per minute) and a drop in hemoglobin of > 2 g/dl per 24 hours despite adequate transfusion.
Rebleeding will be confirmed by an immediate endoscopy showing fresh blood in stomach or active bleeding from a previously seen ulcer. A clinical rebleeding will be independently reviewed by an adjudication panel.
- death from all causes [ Time Frame: within 30 days of therapy ]
- transfusion requirement [ Time Frame: within 30 days of therapy ]
- hospital stay including Intensive Care Unit stay [ Time Frame: within 30 days of therapy ]
- further interventions either further TAE or surgery [ Time Frame: within 30 days of therapy ]
- hospital costs [ Time Frame: within 30 days of therapy ]
