BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Gastric varices develop in 5% to 33% of patients with portal hypertension. Their most common form is concomitant gastro esophageal varices. Scleroligation (combined sclerotherapy and band ligation) has been used successfully in management of esophageal varices but has not been previously evaluated in the management of gastroesophageal varices. The aim of this work was evaluation of a new scleroligation technique for management of bleeding gastroesophageal varices regarding efficacy, adverse events, variceal recurrence, and survival...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: EndoCuff is a disposable device applied to standard colonoscopes to improve mucosal visualization. Randomized parallel trials have shown that EndoCuff increases the adenoma detection rate (ADR). The primary aim of this study was to compare the ADR between EndoCuff-assisted colonoscopies (EAC) and standard colonoscopies (SC) within a randomized back-to-back trial. METHODS: This is a single-center randomized crossover study (NCT02374515) involving adult patients undergoing screening, surveillance or diagnostic colonoscopy...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The Third Eye Retroscope, Full Spectrum Endoscope (FUSE) and EndoRings device have been shown to reduce overall adenoma miss rates. We evaluated the characteristics of adenomas and patient subgroups for which these "behind folds visualizing" technologies mostly reduce adenoma miss rates. METHODS: Data of 3 multicenter randomized trials (NCT01044732; NCT01549535; NCT01955122) were combined. Patients underwent same-day, back-to-back tandem examinations with standard colonoscopy and Third Eye Retroscope, FUSE or EndoRings colonoscopy, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Video capsule endoscopy (VCE) has become a major diagnostic tool for small-bowel evaluation. However, retention of the video capsule endoscope remains a major concern. METHODS: We performed a systematic review of VCE retention rates using Pubmed and SCOPUS (1995-2015). We included studies that enrolled at least 10 subjects, included VCE retention rates, and separated retention rates by indication. We used Comprehensive Meta-Analysis (Version 3.0) to calculate pooled prevalence rates with 95% confidence intervals and assessed heterogeneity using Cochran's Q statistic...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD) is being increasingly used as an alternate therapeutic modality to percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) for biliary obstruction in patients who fail ERCP. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to compare the efficacy and safety of these 2 procedures. METHODS: We searched several databases from inception to September 4, 2016, to identify comparative studies evaluating the efficacy and safety of EUS-BD and PTBD...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Bile duct surgery (BDS), percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography (PTC), and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) are alternative interventions used to treat biliary disease. We aim to describe trends in ERCP, BDS, and PTC on a nationwide level in the United States. METHODS: We used the National Inpatient Sample to estimate age-standardized utilization trends of inpatient diagnostic ERCP, therapeutic ERCP, BDS, and PTC between 1998 and 2013...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Almost all studies on post-ERCP pancreatitis (PEP) have mainly involved patients with biliary diseases, rather than chronic pancreatitis; and the concept that chronic pancreatitis (CP) seems to be a protective factor associated with PEP has not been studied in detail. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of PEP in patients with CP at different clinical stages and to identify the predictive and protective factors of PEP in a large cohort. METHODS: This is an observational cohort study...

BACKGROUND: Diminutive (1-5 mm) and small (6-9 mm) polyps comprise 90% of detected lesions during colonoscopy and rarely contain advanced histology or colorectal cancer (CRC). Routine removal of these lesions results in a significant burden to colonoscopy programs. At the same time, the risk for progression of these polyps to CRC is unclear. We performed a systematic review to explore the natural history of diminutive and small colorectal polyps. METHODS: We searched MEDLINE and EMBASE for studies investigating the natural history of colorectal polyps...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Self-expandable metallic stents (SEMSs) are considered the best palliative treatment of dysphagia for patients with advanced esophageal cancer. Adverse events (AEs) are a major concern, especially in patients with better prognosis and longer survival. The present study aimed to evaluate the AEs of patients who survived longer than 6 months with esophageal stents in place. METHODS: This is a retrospective analysis of a prospectively collected database including all patients submitted to esophageal stent placement for the palliation of malignant diseases during the period from February 2009 to February 2014 at a tertiary-care academic center, who remained with the stent longer than 6 months...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The risk of colorectal cancer (CRC) in various chronic liver diseases compared with the general population remains unclear. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the risk of CRC in patients with chronic liver diseases before and after liver transplantation. METHODS: Electronic databases were searched for studies assessing the risk of CRC in patients with chronic liver diseases. The primary outcome was the pooled risk of CRC among studies that reported the risk as standardized incidence rate (SIR)...

BACKGROUND: Prophylactic endotracheal intubation (PEI) is often advocated to mitigate the risk of cardiopulmonary adverse events in patients presenting with brisk upper gastrointestinal bleed (UGIB). However, the benefit of such a measure remains controversial. Our study aimed to compare the incidence of cardiopulmonary unplanned events (CUE) between patients who underwent endotracheal intubation versus those who didn't, in critically ill patients with brisk UGIB. METHODS: Patients aged 18 years or older who had presented at Cleveland Clinic between 2011 and 2014 with hematemesis and/or patients with melena with consequential hypovolemic shock were included...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Endoscopic biopsy for the diagnosis of duodenal adenocarcinoma is not perfect. We investigated the accuracy of biopsy diagnoses of superficial nonampullary duodenal epithelial tumors (NADETs). METHODS: Clinicopathological data were retrospectively reviewed for 95 superficial NADETs from 95 patients who underwent endoscopic resection. Preoperative diagnoses based on biopsy were compared with histological diagnoses of resected specimens. RESULTS: Among the 21 lesions with biopsy diagnoses of carcinoma, 12 (57...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Adenoma detection rate (ADR) is a quality indicator. We tested the hypothesis that water exchange (WE) improves whereas water immersion (WI) has no adverse effect on ADR compared with air insufflation (AI). METHODS: A prospective study (NCT01894191) was conducted at the Dalin Tzu Chi Hospital in southern Taiwan and the Hualien Tzu Chi Hospital in eastern Taiwan on patients randomly assigned to WE, WI, or AI with stratification by the 3 study colonoscopists...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Endoscopic forceps biopsy and fixation are laborious and prolong the procedure and anesthesia. Multiple biopsy overcomes these shortcomings with a single endoscope pass that cuts, like a needle biopsy, up to 25 biopsies of uniform size and depth during endoscope withdrawal. Biopsy specimens are collected in acquisition order and stored in a perforated plastic storage chamber within the perforated metal tip. The tip is cut off, immersed in fixative, and sent to pathology...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: The Surveillance versus RadioFrequency ablation (SURF)-trial randomized 136 patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE) containing low-grade dysplasia (LGD), to receive radiofrequency ablation (ablation, n=68) or endoscopic surveillance (control, n=68). Ablation reduced the risk of neoplastic progression to high-grade dysplasia (HGD) and esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) by 25% over 3 years (1.5% for ablation vs 26.5% for control). We performed a cost-effectiveness analysis from a provider perspective alongside this trial...
