Predictors for the need for endoscopic therapy in patients with presumed acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding
1. A fresh bloody nasogastric lavage and hemoglobin < 8.6 g/dL might be useful, easily applicable, and independent predictors for endoscopic hemostasis in a pre-endoscopy setting.
2. The odds ratio of endoscopic hemostasis was 2.677 in patients who had these predictors compared with patients who had no predictors.
3. The presence of more predictors indicated an increased risk of endoscopic hemostasis.
Ezetimibe decreased nonalcoholic fatty liver disease activity score but not hepatic steatosis
1. Ezetimibe decreased nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) activity score without improving hepatic steatosis.
2. Cholesterol lowering agents did not significantly decreased the hepatic steatosis in NAFLD patients.
3. There was no significant increase in glycated hemoglobin levels following statin use for 6 months.
A score for decision making during percutaneous coronary intervention in acute myocardial infarction patients with multivessel disease
1. The characteristics of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients are heterogeneous. Therefore, an individualized and optimized percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) strategy is required in Korean AMI patients with multivessel disease.
2. The culprit only versus multivessel revascularization (CONVERSE) score is constructed using baseline clinical characteristics, laboratory, echographic, angiographic findings.
3. The patients with a CONVERSE score of 3 or more are recommended to undergo multivessel PCI.
