An abstract sheds light on the role of aspirin, NSAID, and anticoagulants in the increasing incidence of acute lower gastrointestinal tract bleeding over 10 years. Aspirin, NSAID, and anticoagulants have been associated with both upper and lower gastrointestinal tract bleeding. However, there are no long term prospective studies within well defined communities about the impact of these medications on the natural history of acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding (ALGIB). To assess the incidence, severity, complications, and mortality of ALGIB in patients taking aspirin, NSAID, and anti-coagulants.
