Table 4 Comparison of BEST-J scores of patients with EGC between the delayed bleeding group and the nonbleeding group

From: External validation of the BEST-J score and a new risk prediction model for ESD delayed bleeding in patients with early gastric cancer

  Nonbleeding group (n = 417) Delayed bleeding group (n = 27) P value
Total scores (points, mean ± SD) 1.53 ± 0.778 1.96 ± 1.018 0.006*
Total scores [n (%)]    0.047*
 0 25 (6.0) 1 (3.7)  
  1 187 (44.8) 7 (25.9)  
  2 171 (41.0) 14 (51.9)

Risk category [n (%)]    0.020*
 Low-risk 212 (50.8) 8 (29.6)

 High-risk 33 (7.9) 4 (14.8)  
 Very high-risk 1 (0.2) 1 (3.7)  
  1. BEST-J, bleeding after ESD trend from Japan; EGC, early gastric cancer; SD, standard deviation
  2. Low-risk (total points = 0 or 1), intermediate-risk (total points = 2), high-risk (total points = 3 or 4), and very high-risk (total points ≥ 5)
  3. *P < 0.05
