It is well established that the use of traditional nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) increases the vulnerability of the gastrointestinal (GI) mucosa for the development of peptic lesions and serious ulcer complications. In addition, selective and traditional NSAIDs have also been associated with increased frequency of cardiovascular toxicity, especially in susceptible patients.
During the last twenty-five years, a remarkable revolution in the pathophysiology and treatment of gastric (GU) and duodenal (DU) ulcers has occurred. Effective therapies were developed not only to heal ulcers but also to cure most patients.
