    Background: There is a paucity of data on the management of gastrointestinal(GI) bleeding MESHD in patients with COVID-19 amid concerns about the risk of transmission TRANS during endoscopic procedures.We aimed to study the outcomes of conservative treatment for GI bleeding MESHD in patients with COVID-19. Methods: In this retrospective analysis, 24 of 1342(1.8%) patients with COVID-19, presenting with GI bleeding MESHD from 22ndApril to 22ndJuly 2020, were included. Results: The mean age TRANS of patients was 45.8+/-12.7 years; 17(70.8%) were males TRANS; upper GI(UGI) bleeding MESHD: lower GI MESHD(LGI) 23:1. Twenty-two(91.6%) patients had evidence of cirrhosis HP cirrhosis MESHD- 21 presented with UGI bleeding MESHD while one had bleeding MESHD from hemorrhoids HP hemorrhoids MESHD. Two patients without cirrhosis HP cirrhosis MESHD were presumed to have non-variceal bleeding MESHD. The medical therapy for UGI bleeding included vasoconstrictors- somatostatin in 17(73.9%) and terlipressin in 4(17.4%) patients. All patients with UGI bleeding MESHD received proton pump inhibitors and antibiotics. Packed red blood SERO cells(PRBCs), fresh frozen plasma SERO and platelets were transfused in 14(60.9%), 3(13.0%) and 3(13.0%), respectively. The median PRBCs transfused was 1(0-3) unit(s). The initial control of UGI bleeding MESHD was achieved in all 23 patients and none required an emergency endoscopy. At 5-day follow-up, none rebled or died. Two patients later rebled, one had intermittent bleed due to gastric antral vascular ectasia MESHD, while another had rebleed 19 days after discharge. Three(12.5%) cirrhosis HP cirrhosis MESHD patients succumbed to acute hypoxemic respiratory failure MESHD respiratory failure HP during hospital stay. Conclusion: Conservative management strategies including pharmacotherapy, restrictive transfusion strategy, and close hemodynamic monitoring can successfully manage GI bleeding MESHD in COVID-19 patients and reduce need for urgent endoscopy.
