Increased Risk of Death in First Year After Liver Transplantation Among Patients with Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis vs Liver Disease of Other Etiologies.

Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol 2019 Apr 17. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Gastroenterology, Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, Michigan, United States.

Background & Aims: An increasing number of patients with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) require liver transplantation. We compared outcomes of patients with liver diseases of different etiologies (NASH, hepatitis C virus [HCV]-associated liver disease, and alcohol-associated liver disease [ALD]).

Methods: We analyzed data from the United Network for Organ Sharing registry on 6344 patients who underwent liver transplantation for NASH, 17,037 for cirrhosis from chronic HCV infection, and 9279 for ALD. Read More

Measurement of Forearm Bone Density by Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry Increases the Prevalence of Osteoporosis in Men with Celiac Disease.

Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol 2019 Apr 10. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Division of Gastroenterology, Celiac Disease Center, Department of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, NY 10032.

Background & Aims: Guidelines advise measurement of bone mineral density (BMD) in patients with a diagnosis of celiac disease. The lumbar spine (LS) and hip sites are usually measured. Although skeletal sites rich in trabecular bone are believed to be vulnerable to osteoporosis in patients with celiac disease, most studies have not measured the cortical distal 1/3-radius.

Combination of Bismuth and Standard Triple Therapy Eradicates Helicobacter pylori Infection in More than 90% of Patients.

Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

- Gastroenterology Unit, Hospital Universitario de La Princesa, Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria Princesa (IIS-IP), Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM), and Centro de Investigación Biomédica en Red de Enfermedades Hepáticas y Digestivas (CIBERehd). Madrid. SPAIN. Electronic address:

Background & Aims: Due to the poor eradication rates of standard triple therapy, the addition of bismuth salts has been proposed for first-line eradication of Helicobacter pylori. We assessed the effectiveness and safety of the combination of bismuth and the standard, clarithromycin-containing triple therapy in eradication of H pylori infection, using data from a large multi-center registry.

Methods: We performed an interim analysis of data from the European Registry on H pylori Management, a prospective trial registering clinical data and outcomes from infected patients from 27 countries in Europe since 2013. Read More

Background & Aims: Tumor cells can migrate via diminutive perivascular cuffing to distant sites along blood vessels to formextra-vascular migratory metastases (EVMM). These metastases are usually identified during surgery or autopsies. We aimed to evaluate the feasibility and safety of endoscopic ultrasound fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) of perivascular soft-tissue cuffs to detect EVMM. Read More

Smaller Diameter Covered Transjugular Intrahepatic Portosystemic Shunt Stents are Associated With Increased Survival.

Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol 2019 Mar 30. Epub 2019 Mar 30.

Department of Gastroenterology, University Hospital Freiburg, Freiburg, Germany.

Background & Aims: We studied effects of diameter of covered, self-expandable nitinol stents on survival times of patients with a transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS).

Methods: We collected data from 185 patients (median age, 55 years; 30% female) who received a covered nitinol stent, from February 2006 through September 2010, using the online, multicenter, German TIPS registry. TIPS were given to 107 patients for refractory ascites and to 78 patients for variceal bleeding. Read More

Incidence of Immune-mediated Inflammatory Diseases Among Patients With Inflammatory Bowel Diseases in Denmark.

Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol 2019 Mar 29. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Department of Dermatology and Allergy, Herlev and Gentofte Hospital, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

Background & Aims: It is not clear whether the co-occurrence of immune-mediated inflammatory diseases (IMIDs) affects the course of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). We investigated the occurrence of IMIDs in relation to onset of IBD and the effects of concurrent IMIDs on IBD outcomes in a nationwide study of the Danish population.

Methods: We used a nationwide cohort of all individuals diagnosed with IBD, including Crohn's disease (CD) or ulcerative colitis (UC), in Denmark from 2007 through 2016 (n=14,377). Read More

Clinical and Molecular Features of Post-Colonoscopy Colorectal Cancers.

Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol 2019 Mar 29. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Huntsman Cancer Institute, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah; Department of Medicine (Gastroenterology), (§)Department of Oncological Sciences, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Background & Aims: Post-colonoscopy colorectal cancers (PCCRCs) may arise from missed lesions or due to molecular features of tumors that allow them to grow rapidly. We aimed to compare clinical, pathology, and molecular features of PCCRCs (those detected within 6-60 months of colonoscopy) and detected CRCs (those detected within 6 months of a colonoscopy).

Methods: Within a population-based cross-sectional study of incident CRC cases in Utah (from 1995 through 2009), we identified PCCRCs (those cancers that developed within 5 years of a colonoscopy) and matched the patients by age, sex, and hospital site to patients with detected CRC. Read More

No Increased Risk of Colorectal Adenomas in Spouses of Patients with Colorectal Neoplasia.

Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol 2019 Mar 27. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

Division of Digestive and Liver Diseases, Department of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; Department of Epidemiology, Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University, New York, New York.

Although genetic factors such as family history have been associated with increased risk of developing colorectal cancer (CRC), multiple lifestyle and environmental risk factors for CRC have been identified, including smoking, diet, obesity, and physical activity. Although couples typically have different genetic backgrounds, spouses are likely to share lifestyle and environmental exposures over the course of years, including similar home environments, geographical locations of residence, dietary exposures, and smoking exposures. As such, one might expect that an increased CRC incidence would be seen among spouses of patients with CRC; however, studies on this topic have inconsistent results. Read More
