Abstract

Of the serious complications of gastrointestinal ulcers (bleeding, perforation, obstruction, and sometimes death), non-variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding (NVUGIB) remains the commonest. These days it is mostly seen in association with the use of antithrombotic drugs (ATDs), particularly low-dose aspirin (75–325 mg/day), given for vascular protection.1 Nicorandil is a vasodilator that acts as a nitrate and K+ATP channel agonist. It is used in many countries worldwide and is often added to ATDs in the management of angina.
