The risk of colorectal cancer in Indian patients with long-standing ulcerative colitis is high and similar to that in the West. Surveillance for dysplasia in these patients is therefore important. Recent studies and guidelines suggest an increasing role for chromoendoscopy-guided biopsy in surveillance for dysplasia. We report our experience with the technique of chromoendoscopy and an economical method of performing it. Reconstituting indigo carmine from a powder form rather than the dyes available commercially is a better economical alternative and should help make chromoendoscopy the standard of care for dysplasia surveillance across the country...

INTRODUCTION: Identification of pancreatic exocrine insufficiency (PEI) is important in the management of chronic pancreatitis. The 72-h stool for fecal fat estimation (FFE) has long been considered a gold standard indirect test for the diagnosis of PEI. However, the test is cumbersome for both patients and laboratory personnel alike. In this study, we aimed to assess fecal elastase 1 (FE1) as an alternate to FFE for the diagnosis of PEI. METHODS: In all, 87 consecutive patients diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis were included in this study...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Although chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection affects millions of people in India, few studies have assessed host, viral, and disease characteristics of chronically infected patients at national and regional levels. Such information is critical to support large scale screening and treatment initiatives for chronic HCV infection in India. METHODS: Patients with known chronic HCV infection making routine or for-cause visits to the participating study centers were enrolled in this observational study...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Circulating levels of von Willebrand factor (vWF) predict mortality in patients with cirrhosis. We hypothesized that systemic inflammation in acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) will stimulate endothelium, increase vWF levels, and promote platelet microthrombi causing organ failure. METHODS: In this prospective study, we correlated plasma vWF levels with organ failure, liver disease severity, sepsis, and systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) and also analyzed if vWF levels predicted in-hospital composite poor outcome (i...

BACKGROUND: The safety and efficacy of sofosbuvir-based treatment (sofosbuvir and ribavirin with or without pegylated interferon-α) for hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection has been established in clinical trials. However, there is limited data regarding safety and efficacy of sofosbuvir-based treatment for HCV infection in a "real-life" cohort. We describe our experience with sofosbuvir-based treatment for HCV infection in a real-life cohort. METHODS: This was a prospective, nonrandomized and observational study at a tertiary care centre in Surat, India...

REVIEW
Sumant Arora, Steven Young, Sudha Kodali, Ashwani K Singal
Porphyrias are a group of metabolic disorders, which result from a specific abnormality in one of the eight enzymes of the heme biosynthetic pathway. These have been subdivided based on the predominant site of enzyme defect into hepatic and erythropoietic types and based on clinical presentation into acute neurovisceral and cutaneous blistering porphyrias. This review focuses on hepatic porphyrias, which include acute intermittent porphyria (AIP), variegate porphyria (VP), hereditary coproporphyria (HCP), aminolevulinic acid dehydratase deficiency porphyria (ADP), and porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT)...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study is to study the etiology, clinical profile, and prognostic factors related to maternal and fetal health in pregnant patients with liver disease in Western India. METHODS: This study included 103 consecutive pregnant patients with liver dysfunction from August 2013 to July 2015, who underwent regular biochemical tests, viral markers, ultrasound of abdomen, etc. and were followed up for 6 weeks postpartum or until death. RESULTS: Pregnancy-specific causes of liver dysfunction were found in 39 % (40/103) patients...

A 45-year-old lady presented with left lower quadrant abdominal pain and hematochezia of 1 month duration. She had Copper-T, an intrauterine contraceptive device (IUCD) inserted in the immediate post-partum period 25 years ago elsewhere and was lost to follow up. CT abdomen done 2 weeks earlier before reporting to us revealed a migrated and translocated IUCD embedded in the right lateral wall of the rectum. On colonoscopy, an area of friable mucosal nodule was noticed in the right lateral wall 10 cm from the anal verge but the IUCD was not visible intraluminally...

The primary aim of this study was to assess the usefulness of plasma hydrogen sulphide (H2S) level at admission as a predictor of severity of acute pancreatitis. The secondary aims were to examine whether the level of H2S after 48 h correlated with severity and whether level of H2S correlated with pulmonary, renal or infectious complications. Plasma hydrogen sulphide was measured within 24 h of admission and 48 h later, in patients with acute pancreatitis. Patients were classified as having mild or severe pancreatitis, and H2S levels in the two groups were compared...

INTRODUCTION: There is scarce data relating to methods to improve sphincter preservation in rectal gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST). Increasing the duration of neoadjuvant (NA) imatinib resulting in improved sphincter preservation rate has not been established. This retrospective analysis looks at the rates of sphincter preservation in rectal GIST with NA imatinib and effect of duration of NA imatinib on the same to find out optimum duration of NA with respect to sphincter preservation in rectal GIST patients...

The aim of this study is to analyze the outcomes of patients with chronic pancreatitis who underwent the Frey procedure and who had a histologic evidence of adenocarcinoma in the cored out specimen.The type of analysis is retrospective. Out of 523 patients who underwent Frey procedure for chronic pancreatitis, seven (five males and two females; age range 42 to 54 years) had histologically proven adenocarcinoma. In the first four cases, intraoperative frozen section was not done. The diagnosis was made on routine histopathology and only one out of four could undergo attempted curative therapy...

BACKGROUND: Little data exist on the progression of recurrent acute (RAP) and chronic pancreatitis (CP) from regions from where the entity of tropical chronic pancreatitis was originally described. The study aimed to follow up patients with RAP and CP seen at a southern Indian centre for progression of disease over time. METHODS: Prospectively enrolled patients with RAP and CP were followed up, and the alcoholic and idiopathic subgroups were assessed for progression of structural and functional changes in the organ...

AIM: The aim of this study is to estimate the socioeconomic impact of alcohol use on patients with alcoholic liver disease (ALD) and their families. METHODS: The demographic and socioeconomic data were collected from hospitalized ALD patients and attendants using a self designed non validated questionnaire and analyzed. RESULTS: Study subjects included 100 consecutive ALD patients (all males). Sixty percent were between 30 and 50 years. Most were married (96 %), literate (63 %), either businessmen (37 %) or employed (30 %) and belonged to middle socioeconomic class...

Forty-four-year-old male with ulcerative colitis (UC) for 11 years reported frequent relapse despite daily sulfasalazine 4 g, azathioprine 125 mg, and rectal 5-aminosalicylic acid. Repeated use of corticosteroids led to cataract. At enrollment, he was passing eight stools a day with blood with a Mayo score of 9 (3+1+3+2). Stool was negative for ova/cysts/acid fast bacilli and Clostridium difficile toxin assay. Rectal biopsy showed cryptitis, crypt abscess, and crypt distortion with no inclusion bodies, and cytomegalovirus DNA was negative...
