  Peptic ulcer bleedings are the main cause of non-variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding [1-5]. The morbidity in patients with bleeding peptic ulcers reaches 8 - 10% and increases when recurrent bleeding occurs [1-4]. The imperfection of prognostic scales is one of the reasons for high morbidity. The most common scales are Rockall, Glasgow Blatchford, Baylor, Cedars-Sinai, AIMS65, PNED. However, according to some authors, more accurate scales are needed, and this is why they suggest using additional predictive criteria [6]. A common flaw of the known scales is that they are based exceptionally on clinical criteria and do not take into account the mechanisms of bleeding development.
