Figure 3

Proportions of patients with different forms of mucosal injury. In patients who had esophageal mucosal injury, the percentage with concurrent gastric mucosal injury was 53.6% for LDA users versus 33.7% for nonusers. In patients who had duodenal mucosal injury, the percentage with concurrent gastric mucosal injury was 88.9% for LDA users versus 40.4% for nonusers. EI = esophageal mucosal injury, GI = gastric mucosal injury, and DI = duodenal mucosal injury.
