Abstract

Because the rates of morbidity and mortality from gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding in the elderly are substantially higher than those seen in younger patients, practitioners caring for the elderly should be familiar with aspects of GI bleeding that are unique to this population. A discussion of the differential diagnosis of upper GI tract bleeding is followed by a review of approaches for diagnosis and treatment.
