Visick criteria

What are the Visick criteria? 

The Visick criteria are used to grade outcome after surgery for PUD:

  • Grade I—No symptoms
  • Grade II—Mild symptoms that do not affect daily life
  • Grade III—Moderate symptoms that affect daily life and require treatment but are not disabling
  • Grade IV—Recurrent ulceration or disabling symptoms

Grades I and II are considered adequate results. Most poor outcomes fall into grade III.
