Trends in hospital admissions and death rates for peptic ulcer in the usa 1970 1978


Gastroenterology 78(2): 280-285
Trends in hospital admissions and death rates for peptic ulcer in the usa 1970 1978
During 1970-1978, admissions to short-term non-federal hospitals in the USA for duodenal ulcer decreased by 43%, whereas admissions for gastric ulcer did not change significantly. The decline in admissions for duodenal ulcer was greatest for uncomplicated cases, less for those with hemorrhage and least (and not significant) in those with perforation. During 1970-1977, USA Vital Statistics reports of deaths from peptic ulcer decreased 31%, with about equal declines in total deaths, those associated with hemorrhage and those associated with perforation. The fall in death rate involved both gastric and duodenal ulcer in men and women. The male/female ratio was falling steadily and was about 1.2 for hospitalizations and about 1.5 for deaths. During 1970-1978 the percentage of persons over 60 yr of age rose from 14 to 15% in the USA population as a whole, from 23 to 29% in persons hospitalized for all causes, from 27 to 36% in those hospitalized for duodenal ulcer and from 40 to 48% in those hospitalized for gastric ulcer.
