Acute Care Surgery/Emergency General Surgery Lower GI Bleed: An Algorithm for Non-Surgical and Surgical Management

Credit available through October 16, 2021

Lower gastrointestinal bleeding affects over 200,000 people each year, and even more are thought to be unaccounted for since many patients do not seek care. It is a frequent cause of hospital admissions and is a source of significant morbidity especially in patients with chronic health problems and the elderly. Management options and treatment algorithms may differ by institution, but preoperative localization of the hemodynamically significant lesion is ideal for successful outcomes.
