Abstract

Aim: To compare peptic ulcer prevalence in patients referred for upper gastrointestinal endoscopy in two Italian hospitals in pre-Helicobacter era and ten years after the progressive diffusion of eradication therapy. Methods: We checked all the endoscopic examinations consecutively performed in the Gastroenterology Unit of Padova during 1986-87 and 1995-96, and in the Gastroenterology Unit of Parma during 1992 and 2002. Chi Square test was used for statistic analysis. Results: Data from bot h the endoscopic centers showed a statistically significant decrease in the prevalence of ulcers: from 12.7% to 6.3% (P
