Use of the Complete Rockall Score and the Forrest Classification to Assess Outcome in Patients with Non-variceal Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding Subject to After-hours Endoscopy: A Retrospective Cohort Study

Thirty-day, one-year mortality and re-bleeding rates were 16.7%, 32.9% and 14%, respectively in patients with upper gastrointestinal bleeding proven by after-hours endoscopy. A Rockall score > 2 was associated with an increased 30-day mortality. Rockall score and Forrest classification did not otherwise reliably predict adverse events.


Objectives: To evaluate the usefulness of Forrest classification and the complete Rockall score with customary cut-off values for assessing the risk of adverse events in patients with upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGI-B) subject to after-hours emergency oesophao-gastro-duodenoscopy (E-EGD) with six hours after admission.
