This study included patients with upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage who were treated in intensive care unit of GATA Haydarpasa Training Hospital, Division of Internal Medicine during 1 year. Medical and demographic data of the patients were recorded. These patients were followed for 3 months after being discharged from the intensive care unit. Of the 50 patients in the study, 18 were female (36%), 32 were male (64%). The mean age was 47±2 years, and the ages ranged between 17 and 89 years. We did not find any statistically significant results in our evaluation of the relationship between the mean platelet volume and the number of transfusions, endoscopic findings, and prognosis after 3 months of follow-up.
