Although the benefits of primary prevention of gastrointestinal bleeding with a proton pump inhibitor in all patients taking aspirin and clopidogrel are questionable, Chua and Ignaszewski should have emphasised the importance of a history of peptic ulcer as a risk factor for recurrent bleeding while receiving antiplatelet treatment (odds ratio to 16).1 2 These Author: Ian L Beales.
