Patients with upper gastrointestinal bleeding have better survival under a restrictive transfusion approach rather than a more liberal strategy, according to a Spanish study.

Dr. Loren Laine of Yale University wrote in an accompanying piece that the study provided "important evidence to guide clinical practice."
