Table 5 Multivariate analysis after exclusion of patients with in-hospital NSAID ulcer complications

From: Proton-pump inhibitors are associated with a reduced risk for bleeding and perforated gastroduodenal ulcers attributable to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs: a nested case-control study

Predictor Adjusted OR 95% CI p
Proton-pump inhibitors 0.31 0.15–0.66 0.002
Coumarin 2.38 1.03–5.48 0.04
Heart failure 2.10 1.04–4.21 0.04
Acetaminophen 2.47 1.39–4.39 0.002
Low-molecular-mass heparin 6.06 0.91–40.60 0.06
  1. Serious non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) ulcer complication was the dependent variable. Only variables from the final parsimonious model are shown. OR, odds ratio; CI, confidence interval.
