EUS-guided trans-esophageal drainage of a mediastinal necrotic fluid collection using the axios electrocautery enhanced delivery system™.

Scand J Gastroenterol 2019 Feb 3:1-3. Epub 2019 Feb 3.

a Digestive Endoscopy Unit, Campus Bio-Medico , University of Rome , Rome , Italy.

Mediastinal collection secondary to necrotic acute pancreatitis, is an extremely rare event caused by the posterior rupture of the pancreatic duct into the retroperitoneal space with the penetration of the pancreatic fluid through the diaphragmatic orifices. Infection of the necrotic collection may occur with a consequent substantial increase of the mortality rate. Due to the rarity of this severe condition, no consensus is known about the management of infected mediastinal necrotic collections. Read More

Predictive value of the red blood cell distribution width-to-platelet ratio for hepatic fibrosis.

Scand J Gastroenterol 2019 Jan 20:1-6. Epub 2019 Jan 20.

f Department of Laboratory Medicine , The Affiliated Hospital of Shaoxing University , Shaoxing , China.

Aims: The red blood cell distribution width-to-platelet ratio (RPR) has been reported to be an indicator of hepatic fibrosis in patients with chronic hepatitis B (HBV), nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) or chronic hepatitis C (HCV). However, no research has explored the RPR in all patients with hepatic fibrosis. There is a recognized need to establish whether the RPR could assess hepatic fibrosis and reflect the severity of fibrosis, regardless of the patient's etiology. Read More

"Primary bacterial culture of bile and pancreatic juice in tumor related jaundice (TROJ) - is ascending cholangitis always our fault?"

Scand J Gastroenterol 2018 Dec 8;53(12):1569-1574. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

c Microbiology Unit , Łódź Medical University 1st Clinical Hospital in Łódź , Łódź , Poland.

Introduction: TROJ (tumor-related obstructive jaundice) is one of the most common indications for endoscopic retrograde choleopancreatography (ERCP) with endoscopic biliary stenting. Despite the effectiveness of this procedure, especially in palliative patients, it is not without flaws. Ascending bacterial cholangitis, a common stenting complication, occurs in about 0. Read More

Diagnostic accuracy of one or two faecal haemoglobin and calprotectin measurements in patients with suspected colorectal cancer.

Scand J Gastroenterol 2018 Dec 8;53(12):1526-1534. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

b Department of Clinical Biochemistry , York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust , York , UK.

Background: The role of faecal biomarkers in patients at 'high risk' of colorectal cancer (CRC) is not yet defined. Pre-analytical factors, such as heterogeneity of biomarker distribution within faeces, may influence their optimisation in clinical practice. We undertook to determine whether repeat or combined biomarker testing improves diagnostic accuracy for CRC or clinically significant disease. Read More

a 2nd Department of Internal Medicine and Research Laboratory , Medical School, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Hippokration Hospital , Athens , Greece.

Objectives: In cystic fibrosis (CF), liver disease (LD) is the third leading cause of mortality. As liver biopsy was considered inconsistent in CFLD diagnosis, a combination of modalities were utilized in the conventional Debray criteria (DC). More recently, noninvasive liver fibrosis biomarkers were applied by Koh et al (New criteria-NC). Read More

a Division of Hepatology, Department of Internal Medicine , Iwate Medical University School of Medicine , Morioka , Japan.

Objectives: Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is the standard therapy for patients with intermediate-stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). This study aimed to determine whether combination therapy with radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and TACE was superior to TACE monotherapy for intermediate-stage HCC and identify cases in which this technique was the most effective.

Materials And Methods: We selected patients with intermediate HCC who met the following eligibility criteria: (1) ≥ 20 years of age, (2) receiving initial therapy, (3) ≤7 tumors, and (4) maximum tumor diameter <5 cm. Read More

b Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery , and Department of Clinical Genetics, Karolinska Institutet, Karolinska University Hospital, Solna , Stockholm , Sweden.

Objective: Lynch syndrome (LS) has an autosomal dominant inheritance pattern and is associated with increased risk for colorectal cancer (CRC) and other cancers. Various strategies are used to identify patients at risk and offer surveillance and preventive programs, the cost effectiveness of which is much dependent on the prevalence of LS in a population. Universal testing (UT) is proposed as an effective measure, targeting all newly diagnosed CRC patients under a certain age. Read More

a Department of Medicine , Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine , Seoul , Korea.

Objectives: The American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) guidelines offered the risk-stratified approach in suspected choledocholithiasis. Previous studies have raised concern about the insufficient accuracy of the guideline, especially in high probability group. The purposes of this study were to authenticate the stratification and clinical predictors of the guidelines for suspected choledocholithiasis with no visible choledocholithiasis on computed tomography (CT) and to make clear the clinical strategy of endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS).
