Table 1: GUE score card.

ScoreDescription

Gastric lesion number score
0No lesions
11-2 localized lesions
23–5 localized lesions
36–10 lesions
4>10 lesions/very large/diffuse lesion

Gastric lesion severity score
0No blood clots
1Free floating or adherent smaller blood clots with no detectable haemorrhage base
2(i) Adherent smaller blood clots with active haemorrhage base
(ii) Apparently superficial smaller focal mucosal erosion (<3 mm) with or without active hemorrhage
(iii) Apparently superficial linear mucosal erosion without active haemorrhage
(iv) Submucosal hemorrhages or erythematous mucosa
(v) Adherent larger blood clots without active haemorrhage base
3(i) Apparently superficial larger focal mucosal erosion (>3 mm) with or without active haemorrhage
(ii) Linear erosions with active bleeding
(iii) Adherent larger blood clots with active haemorrhage base
(iv) Apparently deeper mucosal lesions without haemorrhage
4 Apparently deeper mucosal lesion/ulcer with adherent large blood clots or with active haemorrhage

GUE index = lesion number score + lesion severity score

In case of mixed lesions as per the above description, always a high score was assigned.
