Population-Based Cohort Study from a Prospective National Registry: Better Long-Term Survival in Esophageal Cancer After Minimally Invasive Compared with Open Transthoracic Esophagectomy.

Ann Surg Oncol 2022 Jun 25. Epub 2022 Jun 25.

Department of Upper Abdominal Surgery, Center for Digestive Diseases, Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden.

Background: Recent research indicates long-term survival benefits of minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE) compared with open esophagectomy (OE) for patients with esophageal and gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) cancers, but there is a need for more population-based studies.

Methods: We conducted a prospective population-based nationwide cohort study including all patients in Sweden diagnosed with esophageal or junctional cancer who underwent a transthoracic esophagectomy with intrathoracic anastomosis. Data were collected from the Swedish National Register for Esophageal and Gastric Cancer in 2006-2019. Read More

Sarcopenia, body composition and factors associated with variceal gastrointestinal bleeding and splenectomy in hepatosplenic schistosomiasis mansoni.

Trans R Soc Trop Med Hyg 2022 Jun 24. Epub 2022 Jun 24.

Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Avenida Professor Alfredo Balena, 190 - Santa Efigênia, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, 30130-100, Brazil.

Background: Sarcopenia is a common complication of cirrhosis and an important predictor of morbimortality. We aimed to determine the prevalence of sarcopenia and its associated factors in hepatosplenic schistosomiasis (HSS) as well as to evaluate whether muscle mass and function are associated with variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding (VUGIB) and previous splenectomy in subjects without other liver diseases.

Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional study including adults with HSS who underwent clinical, biochemical, anthropometric, muscle strength and physical performance evaluations and were submitted to bioelectrical impedance analysis and abdominal ultrasound. Read More

Upper gastrointestinal bleeding secondary to late gastric metastasis of renal cell carcinoma.

Rev Esp Enferm Dig 2022 Jun 24. Epub 2022 Jun 24.

Aparato Digestivo, Hospital Universitario San Agustín, España.

Clear cell renal cell carcinoma is the most common renal neoplasm in adults. It has a relatively slow growth pattern that delays diagnosis until the onset of local, paraneoplastic or metastasis-related manifestations, and an unpredictable behavior ranging from aggressive tumors with poor short-term prognosis to late recurrence cases where metastases are identified years after nephrectomy, the latter scenario being the subject of the case we herein report.

Association of direct oral anticoagulant-proton pump inhibitor cotherapy with adverse outcomes: protocol for a population-based cohort study.

BMJ Open 2022 Jun 13;12(6):e057991. Epub 2022 Jun 13.

Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence, and Impact, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

Introduction: Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are widely used for primary and secondary prevention of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. However, there remains controversy about the overall net clinical benefit of PPIs (omeprazole, rabeprazole, pantoprazole, lansoprazole) when coprescribed with direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs; dabigatran, rivaroxaban, apixaban, edoxaban). Our objective is to explore the risk of clinically relevant events, including bleeding, thromboembolic events and death, in patients prescribed DOACs while taking PPIs versus no PPI. Read More
