BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Colonoscopy has been demonstrated to be effective in reducing colorectal cancer (CRC) incidence and mortality, and has been widely used for primary CRC screening in Germany and the United States. We performed a population-based analysis to evaluate and compare the public health impact of recent colonoscopy use on CRC deaths among adults aged 55 to 79 years in Germany and the United States from 2008 to 2011. METHODS: The epidemiologic metrics of attributable fraction and prevented fraction as well as the impact numbers were calculated using colonoscopy utilization data from nationally representative health surveys, relative risk estimates from medical literature, and CRC death registry data...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The effects of chemotherapeutic agents on the development of colorectal adenomas in patients with previous colorectal cancer (CRC) are not defined. Therefore, we evaluated the potential effect of adjuvant chemotherapy on the incidence of colorectal adenomas in patients with previous CRC. METHODS: We selected patients with low-risk stage II CRC with or without postoperative 5-fluorouracil-based adjuvant chemotherapy to reduce selection bias. Among 1808 patients with stage II CRC who underwent colonoscopic surveillance after curative resection of CRC between 2006 and 2013, 192 patients were retrospectively enrolled in this study after matching for age and sex...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Distal attachments placed on the colonoscope tip may positively affect performance by assisting insertion and polyp detection. The Endocuff-original appears to improve adenoma detection rate, but there are no data assessing the performance of the second generation Endocuff-vision. METHODS: A pilot service evaluation study (April-2013/September-2014) was conducted on patients with positive faecal occult blood tests within the National Bowel Cancer Programme during 3 consecutive periods: pre-cuff/no device used, during-cuff/device used and post-cuff/no device used...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Despite evidence that most non-malignant colorectal polyps can be managed endoscopically, a substantial proportion of patients with a non-malignant colorectal polyp are still sent to surgery. Risks associated with this surgery are not well characterized. We aimed to describe 30-day post-operative morbidity and mortality and to explore risk factors for adverse events in patients undergoing surgical resection for non-malignant colorectal polyps. METHODS: We analyzed data collected prospectively as part of the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Recent reports of infectious outbreaks linked to duodenoscopes have led to proposals for duodenoscope surveillance culturing, which has inherent limitations. We aimed to assess the feasibility of real-time adenosine triphosphate (ATP) testing after manual cleaning, and its ability to predict reprocessing adequacy, as determined by terminal duodenoscope cultures. METHODS: Clinically used duodenoscopes underwent reprocessing per current guidelines...

REVIEW
Douglas K Rex, Cesare Hassan, Michael J Bourke
Prevention of colorectal cancer by colonoscopy requires effective and safe insertion technique, high level detection of precancerous lesions, and skillful use of curative endoscopic resection techniques. Lesion detection, characterization, use of appropriate resection methods, prediction of cancer at colonoscopy, and management of malignant polyps, all depend on an accurate and complete understanding of an extensive vocabulary describing the histology and morphology of neoplastic colorectal lesions. Incomplete understanding of vocabulary terms can lead to management errors...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: We performed a prospective multi-national study of patients presenting to the emergency department with upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) and assessed the relationship of time to presentation after onset of UGIB symptoms with patient characteristics and outcomes. METHODS: Consecutive patients presenting with overt UGIB (red-blood emesis, coffee-ground emesis and/or melena) from March 2014 to March 2015 at 6 hospitals were included. Multiple pre-defined patient characteristics and outcomes were collected...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is considered an effective treatment for early esophageal cancer and precancerous lesions. Esophageal stenosis is closely associated with quasi-circumferential ESD. We examined whether post-ESD esophageal stricture can be prevented by grafting an acellular dermal matrix (ADM) membrane. METHODS: Fourteen Bama miniature pigs were randomly divided into an ADM group (n=7) and a control group (n=7). Semi-circumferential ESD was performed at the distal esophagus in all animals, and in the ADM group, an ADM patch graft was placed at the resection site and secured innovatively with metal clips...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Endoscopic suturing of fully covered self-expanding metal stents (SEMS) may prevent migration. The aim of this study was to compare rates of migration between sutured fully covered SEMS (S-FCSEMS), unsecured fully covered SEMS (FC-SEMS), and partially covered SEMS (PC-SEMS) placed for benign esophageal leaks and strictures. METHODS: In a retrospective, single center, cohort study, rates of migration for S-FCSEMS, FC-SEMS, and PC-SEMS were assessed in patients with at least 1 month of follow-up or experiencing clinically significant stent migration (CSSM) any time after placement...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: ERCP with stone removal is the standard treatment for common bile duct stone (CBDS). Radiation exposure is a risk to the endoscopist and patient. EUS-assisted- ERCP without fluoroscopy (EAEWF) in patients with CBDS is feasible but the efficacy and safety compared with ERCP is unknown. We aimed to compare the efficacy and safety of EAEWF with ERCP in CBDS removal. METHODS: A prospective randomized study was done in 114 patients with CBDS who met the inclusion criteria...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Twenty years after the first description of the technique, the debate is still open on role of self-expandable metallic stent (SEMS) placement as a bridge to elective surgery for symptomatic left-sided malignant colonic obstruction. The aim was to compare morbidity rates after colonic stenting bridge to surgery (SBTS) versus emergency surgery (ES) for left-sided malignant obstruction. METHODS: We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) on SBTS or ES for acute symptomatic malignant left-sided large bowel obstruction...

Ingestion of a foreign body is a common reason for attendance to the emergency department. Each case provides a unique challenge depending on the size, shape and consistency of the object swallowed. We present a challenging case of a rarely ingested and unusually shaped object, a telescopic radio aerial and the techniques we used to successfully manage it.

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The fecal immunochemical test (FIT) can be an alternative screening method for colorectal cancer in individuals aged <50 years. However, there is a debate concerning the age at which commencing FIT is beneficial. METHODS: We reviewed the records of participants who had undergone a colonoscopy and FIT as part of a comprehensive health screening program. To determine the age for commencing screening via FIT, participants aged <50 years were classified into 4 age subgroups as follows: 30 to 34, 35 to 39, 40 to 44, and 45 to 49 years...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Direct pancreas juice testing of bicarbonate, lipase, or trypsin after stimulation by secretin or cholecystokinin (CCK) is used to determine exocrine function, a surrogate for diagnosing chronic pancreatitis (CP). Endoscopic pancreas function tests (ePFT) where a peak bicarbonate concentration (PBC) ≥80 mEq/L in pancreas juice is considered normal are now used more frequently. In this ePFT aspirates start 35 minutes after secretin administration because pancreas output peaks 30 minutes after secretagogue administration...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: An increase in blood urea nitrogen (BUN) at 24 hours is a solitary and significant predictor of mortality in patients with acute pancreatitis, which may predict worse outcomes in the similarly resuscitation-requiring condition of acute nonvariceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB). The aim of our study is to assess if an increase in BUN at 24 hours is predictive of worse clinical outcomes in acute nonvariceal UGIB. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted of patients admitted to an academic hospital from 2004 to 2014...
