Core Tip Gastroprotective therapies reduce the risk of bleeding from peptic ulcer disease. For certain high risk groups, the risk reduction is significant: in the order of 50%-85%. Despite this, gastroprotection is still underutilised in this setting. It is unclear what proportion of hospitalizations that occur due to peptic ulcer disease bleeding is preventable. This original research finds that adherence to gastroprotective therapies in high risk populations is poor, and that up to one fifth of all hospitalizations due to peptic ulcer disease related bleeding are potentially preventable.
