Acute Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding Risk Stratification Using Complete Rockall Score
Complete Rockall risk score uses clinical criteria and endoscopy to identify patients at risk of adverse outcomes after acute upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage.
To Identify patients at risk of adverse outcome following acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding.
An observational descriptive hospital-based study conducted on about 65 patients with acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Data from history, physical examination and oesophagogastroduodenoscopy were collected and entered into a Complete Rockall score.
65 cases were identified (43 men and 22 women; mean age 50.1 years). Patients considered to be at low risk of adverse outcomes were 25(38%), while patients considered to be at high risk of adverse outcome were 40(62%).
The majority of the patients who were admitted to hospital with upper gastrointestinal bleeding are of high risk group and of male gender.
