Upper gastrointestinal bleeding continues to be a common reason for admission to hospital worldwide, with annual incidences of 48–172 per 100,000 adults and mortality rates ranging from 2% to 10%. In the last decade, clinical research has led to significant improvements in patient risk stratification using risk scores, improved endotherapy including use of over-the-scope clips, hemospray, and in selected cases Doppler-guided treatment, as well as more widespread use of interventional radiology. Although current practice is associated with great results in the majority of patients, further studies are needed to improve future practice, including ways to further improve endoscopic hemostasis, reduce risk of rebleeding, and most importantly reduce mortality.
In this Special Issue, we focus on clinical advances in upper gastrointestinal bleeding. We would like to invite researchers to submit high-quality original clinical and basic research, meta-analyses, and state-of-the-art reviews.
We look forward to receiving your submissions.
