Biopsy in emergency gastroscopy does not increase the risk of rebleeding in patients with Forrest I acute nonvariceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding combined with suspected malignant gastric ulcer: a multicenter retrospective cohort study.

BMC Gastroenterol 2021 Jun 6;21(1):250. Epub 2021 Jun 6.

Department of Gastroenterology, Xuanwu Hospital of Capital Medical University, 45 Chang-chun Street, Beijing, 100053, China.

Background: Few studies have reported whether a biopsy in emergency gastroscopy (EG) increased the risk of rebleeding in patients with Forrest I acute nonvariceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding (ANVUGIB) combined with suspected malignant gastric ulcer (SMGU). This study aims to conduct a multicenter retrospective cohort study using propensity score matching to verify whether a biopsy in EG increases the risk of rebleeding in patients diagnosed with Forrest I ANVUGIB combined with SMGU.

Methods: Using the data for propensity-matched patients, logistic regression models were fitted using rebleeding as the dependent variable. Read More
