Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
This is late stage if there is blood vomiting,probably stage 3 or 4. it is most important how to prevent excessive bleeding by endoscopic managment and transfusional measures,but if this is refractery bleeding then new surgical procedure may be necessary
