[H. pylori in bleeding peptic ulcer]

Previous | List | Next

I previously recommended to take biopsies after the endoscopic hemostasis for bleeding peptic ulcer. In addition, you need to do CLOtest or Giemsa staining for H. pylori. I would do CLOtest in every patient with bleeding or non-bleeding peptic ulcer.
