OBJECTIVES: Recent drug approvals have increased the availability of biologic therapies for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), making it difficult for patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD) to navigate treatment options. Here we developed a conjoint analysis to examine patient decision-making surrounding biologic medicines for IBD. We used the results to create an online patient decision aid that generates a unique "preferences report" for each patient to assist with shared decision-making with their provider...

OBJECTIVES: Often 2-3 graduated pneumatic dilatations (PD) are required to treat achalasia as there is no current intra-procedural predictor of clinical response. Distensibility measurements using functional lumen imaging probe (FLIP) may provide an intra-procedural predictor of outcome. Our aim was to determine the optimal criterion for esophagogastric junction (EGJ) distensibility measurements during PD that predicts immediate clinical response. METHODS: EGJ distensibility was prospectively measured using FLIP immediately pre- and post-PD...

OBJECTIVES: Both rumination syndrome and supra-gastric belching (SGB) have limited treatment options. We demonstrated (open-label) that baclofen reduces pressure flow events in these patients. We aimed to study the effect of baclofen in a placebo-controlled, double-blind, cross-over study in patients with clinically suspected rumination and/or SGB. METHODS: Twenty tertiary-care patients (mean age 42 years (range 18-61), 13f) with clinically suspected rumination and/or SGB were randomized to receive baclofen (10 mg, t...

OBJECTIVES: The population prevalence of Rome IV-diagnosed functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs) and their cumulative effect on health impairment is unknown. METHODS: An internet-based cross-sectional health survey was completed by 5,931 of 6,300 general population adults from three English-speaking countries (2100 each from USA, Canada, and UK). Quota-based sampling was used to generate demographically balanced and population representative samples with regards to age, sex, and education level...

OBJECTIVES: "Weekend effect" refers to worse outcomes among patients presenting to the hospital on weekends or holidays. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of observational studies assessing the impact of the "weekend effect" in patients with upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage (UGIH). METHODS: We searched key bibliographic databases using keywords and MeSH terms related to gastrointestinal hemorrhage and "weekend effect". Our primary analysis evaluated mortality in patients with UGIH who were hospitalized on the weekend or after-hours compared with a weekday...

OBJECTIVES: Depression is prevalent in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients. The impact of depression on IBD is not well-studied. It is unknown how providers should assess depression. METHODS: We used data from the Sinai-Helmsley Alliance for Research Excellence cohort, to assess methods of diagnosing depression and effects of baseline depression on disease activity at follow-up. A patient health questionnaire (PHQ-8) score ≥5 was consistent with mild depression...

OBJECTIVES: Dye spraying chromoendoscopy (DCE) is recommended for the detection of colonic neoplastic lesions in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The majority of neoplastic lesions are visible endoscopically and therefore targeted biopsies are appropriate for surveillance colonoscopy. To compare three different techniques for surveillance colonoscopy to detect colonic neoplastic lesions in IBD patients: high definition (HD), (DCE), or virtual chromoendoscopy (VCE) using iSCAN image enhanced colonoscopy...

OBJECTIVES: Diverticulitis is a common disease with high clinical burden. We evaluated the joint contribution of multiple lifestyle factors to risks of incident diverticulitis. We also estimated the proportion of diverticulitis preventable by lifestyle modifications. METHODS: We prospectively examined the association between lifestyle factors (red meat, dietary fiber intake, vigorous physical activity (activity with metabolic equivalent ≥6), body mass index (BMI), and smoking) and risk of diverticulitis among participants in the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study...

OBJECTIVES: Peripheral blood eosinophilia (PBE) in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is associated with ulcerative colitis (UC) and active disease. Little data exist on the long-term impact of PBE on disease course. We aimed to investigate the multi-year patterns of PBE and its impact on disease severity in a large IBD cohort. METHODS: We performed a registry analysis of a consented, prospective, natural history IBD cohort at a tertiary center from 2009 to 2014. Demographics, comorbidities, disease activity, healthcare utilization, and time to hospitalization or surgical resection of patients who displayed PBE were compared to patients without PBE...
