Backround: Nonvariceal UGIB remains a common emergency for Gastroenterologists with an annual incidence of 50 to150 per 100,000 of the population. Mortality from UGIB is around 10% and may reach 35% in patients with another medical condition. Comorbidity remains an independent risk factor for UGIB mortality, which is often attributable to increasing age and associated illness. The risk of death following admission to hospital for gastrointestinal bleeding has been quantified by Rockall et al. We studied here factors associated with outcome of patients.
