Core Tip Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can frequently cause small bowel ulcerative lesions. In our prospective case control study we found that 95% of elderly patients with peptic ulcer bleeding consuming NSAIDs also presented small bowel erosions and 55% small bowel ulcers. Small bowel ulcerative lesions were 3 times less frequent in patients with a non-bleeding peptic ulcer consuming NSAIDs, and infrequent among patients with a peptic ulcer not receiving NSAIDs. Small bowel ulcers in peptic ulcer bleeders were related with lower entry hemoglobin and increased need for blood transfusion. Moreover, they could be incriminated for unexplained bleeding recurrence despite successful peptic ulcer hemostasis.
