#1
Jingtao Chen, Ponrathi Athilingam, Patrick Brady
Effectiveness of colonoscopy as a screening tool for colorectal cancer prevention depends on the quality of bowel preparation. The type of bowel preparation agent prescribed is largely dependent on the prescriber's preference, indicating a lack of standard. A retrospective study (N = 84) compared the quality of bowel preparation using 2-L split-dose polyethylene glycol prep (MoviPrep) to other standard bowel preparations. Colonic mucosa visualized using the Boston Bowel Preparation Scale, cecal intubation indicating successful completion of colonoscopy, scope withdrawal time, and procedure duration were measured as outcomes...

There is little information on racial/ethnic characteristics of patients with irritable bowel syndrome. In this study, we determined whether the severity of symptoms (gastrointestinal, psychological distress), cognitive beliefs about irritable bowel syndrome, and life impacts (life interference, health-related quality of life) differ between Asian American and White American women with irritable bowel syndrome. We also look at the relationships among these variables. Asian American women (N = 21) and age- and design-matched White American women (N = 63) with irritable bowel syndrome were included...

The percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) procedure is normally carried out by two doctors. Preliminary experience has suggested that this procedure may be accomplished with the same safety level using one doctor and a specially trained endoscopy nurse. The aim of the study was to assess the immediate outcome and 30 days' procedure-related morbidity following nurse-assisted percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (NA-PEG) in an unselected population of adult patients. Retrospective, nonconsecutive analysis of NA-PEG procedures were registered between 2008 and 2014...

Recent research evidence has shown that patients with chronic viral hepatitis develop symptoms of anxiety and/or depression, which has a strong impact on their health-related quality of life. This study aimed to assess the levels of anxiety, depression, and health-related quality of life among patients with chronic hepatitis B or C in Greece. It was a cross-sectional study among 111 patients with chronic viral hepatitis, evaluated at a tertiary General Hospital of Athens from March to September of 2014. Anxiety, depression, and health-related quality of life were assessed by the use of specially designed questionnaires...

It has been shown that fecal calprotectin can be used to evaluate mucosal inflammation better than using clinical indices and serum markers. The aim of this study was to assess the use of fecal calprotectin for evaluating the disease activity in 2 groups of patients with ulcerative colitis and a control group. The study population consisted of 30 patients with active-phase ulcerative colitis, 30 remission-phase patients, and 30 healthy control patients. After obtaining informed consent, we took blood and fecal samples...

Celiac disease represents a problem in our society, not only because of its interest in terms of healthcare, but also because of its increasing prevalence in recent years and the impact it has on sufferers and their families. This integrative review investigated current knowledge about the experience of living with a gluten-free diet, as well as social support and the role played by nurses and/or associations in the process. A total of 18 articles were selected. Results revealed greater family support is needed to deal with the day-to-day issues of a gluten-free diet...

Strong evidence exists regarding multiple benefits of physical activity among cancer patients. Patients undergoing esophagectomy received counseling for physical activity by a nurse and instructions to keep a diary of physical activities before surgery, followed by 2 counseling sessions after surgery. Physical activity, body mass index, psychological distress, and quality of life were measured at baseline, 2-4 weeks, and 3 and 6 months after discharge. Of 29 participants (mean age = 65.9 years), 72.5% underwent thoracoscopic esophagectomy in the prone position with 3-field lymphadectomy...

We sought to determine, among outpatients at one university hospital endoscopy center, rates of self-reported minor adverse events (MAEs) at 2, 14, and 30 days postcolonoscopy and to identify predictors of MAEs at Day 2 postcolonoscopy. A single-center longitudinal cohort study with follow-ups at Days 2, 14, and 30 postcolonoscopy was conducted in Montreal, Canada. Baseline self-report data included patient age, gender, gastrointestinal discomforts and other discomforts in the preceding month, and comorbidity...

The incidence of inflammatory bowel disease has steadily increased in children within the last decade. As young adults transition into the adult healthcare system, lack of support can lead to disease exacerbations and disease-related complications. The purpose of this scoping review was to examine the current healthcare transition literature in pediatrics and young adults with inflammatory bowel disease, with a particular focus on assessment or screening tools to evaluate healthcare transition readiness. Five most relevant databases were searched...

Fecal disimpaction in the hospital setting may be necessary for a constipated child's condition to improve. This study evaluated the efficiency of 2 disimpaction therapies: nasogastric GoLYTELY (polyethylene glycol-electrolyte solution) compared with oral magnesium citrate. Retrospective chart review of 103 children was conducted to determine the time from the start of the clinic cleanout until abdominal radiograph verification of successful stool evacuation. The children were in an age range of 1-18 years, with average age of 8 years...

The aim of this study was to determine the effect of early postoperative feeding on recovery after appendectomy in children. It was undertaken as a multicenter study. Patients were randomly assigned to 2 groups, each containing 46 children. Postoperatively, liquid and solid food intake and evacuation of first flatus and stool were recorded for the intervention and routine care groups. Postoperative thirst, hunger, nausea, and pain levels were evaluated at regular intervals using the Visual Analogue Scale. Data were obtained as number, mean, and percentage, and statistically analyzed using the chi-square test and the 2-sample t test...

Inflammatory bowel disease has a negative impact on individuals perception of their health status and is associated with disabling processes that have physical, social, and work repercussions. The objectives of this study were to describe the life experiences of individuals with Crohn disease and ulcerative colitis and to develop a theoretical framework to describe the relationships of these diseases with personal and clinical factors. A qualitative study on the basis of grounded theory was conducted, involving individual and semistructured interviews on the life experiences of 14 adults of different ages with inflammatory bowel disease in relapse or inactive phase...
