The Indian Society of Gastroenterology (ISG) Task Force on Inflammatory Bowel Disease and the Indian Radiological and Imaging Association (IRIA) developed combined ISG-IRIA evidence-based best-practice guidelines for imaging of the small intestine in patients with suspected or known Crohn's disease. These 29 position statements, developed through a modified Delphi process, are intended to serve as reference for teaching, clinical practice, and research.

BACKGROUND: The diagnosis of celiac disease (CeD) in clinical practice relies on serological testing for IgA antibodies to human tissue transglutaminase (anti-tTG) which diagnose CeD autoimmunity. We compared three kits for their performance in diagnosis of the disease and evaluated the point prevalence of CeD autoimmunity in a South Indian urban population. METHODS: In the first part of the study, sera from 90 patients with documented CeD and 92 healthy controls were tested for anti-tTG using three different kits...

BACKGROUND: Deceased donor liver transplant (DDLT) is an uncommon procedure in India. We present our experience of DDLT from a public sector teaching hospital. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of all DDLT was performed from April 2012 till September 2016. Demographics, intraoperative, donor factors, morbidity, and outcome were analyzed. RESULTS: During the study period, 305 liver transplants were performed, of which 36 were DDLT (adult 32, pediatric 4; 35 grafts; 1 split)...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) results from perforated appendiceal tumors. It is usually diagnosed preoperatively by imaging. Cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), although aggressive long procedure with high complications rate, was considered the optimal treatment. This study is aiming to study the role of CRS and HIPEC in the management of PMP and assess the outcome. METHODS: This is a retrospective study which was conducted at King Faisal Hospital and Research Center, a tertiary care hospital during the period from November 2008 to June 2016...

Diagnosis of Trichuris trichiura infestations is usually based on identification of barrel-shaped ova in stool, but is frequently missed on stool microscopy. We describe the clinical profile of patients in whom Trichuris infection was incidentally diagnosed at colonoscopy. In a cross-sectional study, patients with colonoscopic diagnosis of trichuriasis were enrolled from the endoscopy unit in a tertiary care center. Blood and stool samples were collected from all those who were willing to participate and provide samples...

BACKGROUND: Though pathogenesis of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is unclear, association with small intestinal bacterial overgrowth [SIBO] and fecal dysbiosis is suggested. We evaluated SIBO in NASH using quantitative jejunal aspirate culture (conventional criteria: ≥ 10(5) colony forming unit (CFU)/mL and newer cutoff ≥ 10(3) CFU/mL) and glucose hydrogen breath test. METHODS: Thirty-eight patients with NASH (age 37.5 years, range 20-54, 9, 24% female), diagnosed by ultrasonography, alanine aminotransferase >1...

Self-expanding metal stenting is an established treatment modality in the management of esophageal growth and stricture. Reactive tissue ingrowth at the uncovered portion of the self-expanding metal stent (SEMS) anchors it in position, preventing its migration. When removal of such an embedded SEMS is clinically indicated, the procedure of endoscopic retrieval is fraught with serious complications. Temporary deployment of a larger fully covered "rescue" SEMS within the embedded SEMS has been reported to be useful in the extraction of the embedded SEMS...

BACKGROUND: Non-cirrhotic intrahepatic portal hypertension (NCIPH) is characterized by thrombotic microangiopathy of the portal venous system, low ADAMTS13 (a disintegrin-like and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin type 1 motifs-13), and high vWF (von Willebrand factor) levels. This study aimed to screen for ADAMTS13 mutations, focusing on the CUB domain, in these patients. METHODS: Prospectively recruited NCIPH patients and healthy volunteers underwent tests for plasma vWF-ADAMTS13 balance...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to determine the association of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in patatin-like phospholipase domain-containing 3 (PNPLA3) at I148 with histological severity of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). METHODS: Patients were selected for the study if they had histological evidence of NAFLD and clinical evidence of non-alcoholic steatohepatits (NASH) cirrhosis. We included 50 NASH cirrhosis, 99 patients of NAFLD including 36 non-NASH fatty liver (NNFL) along with 63 NASH and 75 healthy controls...

BACKGROUND: Acute necrotizing pancreatitis (ANP) is complicated with segmental portal hypertension (PHT) and formation of venous collaterals. Presence of collaterals in vicinity of endoscopic transmural tract can lead to potentially catastrophic situation. Here, we report safety and outcome of EUS-guided transmural drainage of walled-off pancreatic necrosis (WOPN) in patients with PHT and intra-abdominal collaterals. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of collected database of patients (n=18; age 40...

BACKGROUND: Low-grade inflammation may play an important role in pathogenesis of functional dyspepsia (FD). Since cytokines may influence gastric mucosal inflammation, which is associated with FD, we evaluated singe nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of pro-inflammatory IL17F and anti-inflammatory IL10 cytokine genes in patients with FD and healthy subjects (HS). METHODS: Two hundred and thirty-seven consecutive patients with FD (Rome III) and 250 HS were genotyped for IL17F (rs2397084: A/G, rs763780: T/C) and IL10 (rs1800896: G/A, rs1800871: C/T) (PCR-RFLP)...

INTRODUCTION: Large spontaneous portosystemic shunts (SPSS) are seen in a subset of patients with liver disease and medically refractory recurrent/persistent hepatic encephalopathy (MRHE). Shunt occlusion has been shown to improve clinical outcomes. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed patient characteristics, SPSS attributes, procedural features, baseline clinical and investigational parameters, neurological outcomes, adverse effects (procedure and portal hypertension related), and risk factors predicting outcomes in liver disease patients undergoing shunt occlusion procedure for MRHE...

Fatty acid oxidation defects (FAOD) are one of the commonest metabolic liver diseases (MLDs) that can have varied presentations in different age groups. An infant presented with short history of jaundice and irritability, examination showed soft hepatomegaly. Investigations revealed non-ketotic hypoglycemia suggesting FAOD which was later confirmed as carnitine uptake defect with gas chromatography and mass spectrometry and mutation analysis. Patient improved with acute management of metabolic crisis, carnitine supplementation and corn starch therapy with reversal of encephalopathy, reduction in hepatomegaly, maintenance of euglycemia and improvement in liver function tests and creatine phosphokinase on follow up...

BACKGROUND: Nutrient drink test (NDT) is a simple, non-invasive method to assess gastric function including accommodation. However, data on normal satiety drink volume (SDV) in children is scanty with no information about postprandial symptoms (PPS). Our aims were to establish normal values of NDT in healthy children and evaluate its correlation with age, gender, and anthropometry. METHODS: Six- to 18-year-old healthy children underwent the NDT. The nutrient drink (0...

BACKGROUND: Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is the most common chronic gastrointestinal disorder, affecting one third of the population worldwide. Recently, there has been a renewed interest in Stretta therapy in view of potential long-term side effects of PPIs and the durability of relief with fundoplication. METHOD: Prospective randomized study comparing the Stretta treatment with controls receiving PPIs. Patient (> 18 years, n = 20) with symptoms of heartburn, regurgitation, abnormal esophageal acid exposure (≥ 4%), and endoscopically confirmed esophagitis were included into the study...
