1. Peptic ulcer bleeding
Peptic ulcer bleeding is a frequent and dramatic event with both a high mortality rate and a substantial cost for healthcare systems worldwide. It has been found that age is an independent predisposing factor for gastrointestinal bleeding, with the risk increasing significantly in individuals aged>65 years and increasing further in those aged>75 years. Indeed, bleeding incidence and mortality are distinctly higher in elderly patients, especially in those with co-morbidities(12).
2. Perforative hole
In the study of Diagnosis and the results of surgical treatment of perforated gastroduodenal ulcers, showed that the excellent and good long-term results after closure of a perforative hole were noted in 11.7% of the patients, after vagotomy–in 91.6% after gastric resection–in 88%(13). Other indicated that
Complications of gastric and duodenal ulcers were hematemesis and hematochezia (n = 20, 33.3%), and perforation (n = 2, 3.3%)(14).
3. Ulcer scars
Scar tissue produced by peptic ulcers can block passage of food through the digestive tract. There is a study of 181 patients with a gastroduodenal ulcer or ulcer scar (102 with a gastric lesion, 60 with a duodenal lesion, and 19 with both sites involved), specimens were cultured for H. pylori and TTV infection was sought in serum by a polymerase chain reaction(15).
