OBJECTIVES: Iron deficiency is the most common cause of anemia in children with inflammatory bowel disease, although the real prevalence is unknown. Intravenous iron is suggested as the first line treatment. This study aims to determine the prevalence of iron deficiency anemia in children with inflammatory bowel disease followed in a Pediatric Gastroenterology Unit of a tertiary center and to evaluate this unit's experience with intravenous iron. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was designed involving children with inflammatory bowel disease followed in that unit between January 2001 and April 2016...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Adenoma detection rate (ADR) is the most validated quality indicator for colonoscopy. Calculating ADR may not yield information in regards to advanced adenoma detection rate (advanced ADR). In addition, calculating ADR for individual endoscopists cannot distinguish between those who find only one versus more than one adenoma per colonoscopy. Several novel quality indictors were recently proposed to ensure adequate assessment of quality during colonoscopy. Our study aims to determine the correlation between ADR and novel quality indicators...

INTRODUCTION: Endosonography guided celiac plexus neurolysis is efficacious in the management of severe pain due to advanced pancreatic cancer. Although endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guided celiac neurolysis (CN) is mostly a safer procedure than the percutaneous posterior approach, severe complications such as paraplegia have been reported. CASE REPORT: We describe a patient with advanced adenocarcinoma of the pancreas and severe pain who developed irreversible paraplegia after EUS guided CN...

OBJECTIVE: Primary non-response to infliximab in Crohn's disease is still incompletely understood. Our aim was to further characterize the role of inflammatory burden during infliximab induction therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We studied a well-characterized cohort of 201 anti-TNF naive Crohn's disease patients treated with infliximab 5mg/kg at week 0, 2, 6 and 14 who had serum samples drawn just before every infusion. All serum samples were analyzed for CRP, albumin, TNF, IFN-γ, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, infliximab trough concentrations (in-house-developed ELISA) and antibodies to infliximab (HMSA, Prometheus Laboratories Inc...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Lacunae exist on the identity of specific environmental risk factors that associate with Crohn's disease (CD). We hypothesized that indirect exposures acquired via the parents' occupation may confer susceptibility. METHODS: A case-control study based on children diagnosed with CD (prior to age 20) at a tertiary care gastroenterology clinic in Montreal, Canada was carried out. Population- and hospital-based controls without IBD were selected...

Olle Sjöström, Lars Lindholm, Beatrice Melin
OBJECTIVE: Approximately 20-30% of all colorectal cancer (CRC) cases may have a familial contribution. The family history of CRC can be prominent (e.g., hereditary colorectal cancer (HCRC)) or more moderate (e.g., familial colorectal cancer (FCRC)). For family members at risk, colonoscopic surveillance is a well-established method to prevent both HCRC and FCRC, although the evidence for the exact procedures of the surveillance is limited. Surveillance can come at a high price if individuals are frequently examined, as this may result in unnecessary colonoscopies in relation to actual risk for CRC...

Co-prescription of acid suppressive therapy, together with advances in small bowel imaging techniques, have shifted the burden of NSAID-related toxicity from gastro-duodenal to more distal small bowel injury. Due to predominantly subclinical disease, NSAID enteropathy remains under-recognised, with an incidence of 53-80% amongst healthy short-term users, and a prevalence of 50-71% following long-term (>3 months) use. Despite their distinct pathogenesis, those at risk of NSAID-related gastro-duodenal and small bowel complications share several risk factors...
