SUMMARY The aim of this study was to define factors associated with failed endoscopic therapy in patients with active (spurting or oozing) upper gastrointestinal bleeding. We evaluated clinical and endoscopic parameters related to failure of injection hemostasis in 286 peptic ulcer patients with either active spurting or oozing bleeding. Endoscopic injection hemostasis was permanently successful in 218 (76.2%) and failed in 68 patients (23.8%) who needed surgical hemostasis. The overall mortality was 4.9 % (fourteen patients). In univariate analysis, therapeutic failure was significantly related to the presence of: 1) shock on admission (p (EN)
