Abstract

1) The annual incidence of hospitalization for AUGIH was 102.0 per 100,000, increased markedly with age, and was twice as high in males as in females. 2) Peptic ulcer was the most common cause. 3) Gastric ulcer was associated with older age, female gender, and NSAID use. 4) Mortality rates were high when AUGIH started after hospitalization for another disorder.
