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...

Chronic disease accounts for three-quarters of today's medical expenditures. Functional abdominal pain (FAP) syndrome and associated gastrointestinal symptoms affect 0.5% to 2% of North Americans. Persons with FAP routinely seek healthcare, with little resolution of symptoms, despite high costs. National reports advocate for innovative redesign of ambulatory care services. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a low-cost, effective self-management approach. The objective of this study was to implement a registered nurse-led CBT approach to enhance self-management and satisfaction with care for adults with functional gastrointestinal disorder (FGID)...

Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is a serious and rapidly growing problem affecting a population that was not previously recognized as high risk. Although treatments are limited, shedding light on those with a predisposition may allow for primary prevention, as there is presently no cure other than liver transplant. This study examines the risk factors, genetic predisposition, pathophysiology, and treatment options.

To obtain optimal visualization of the colonic mucosa during gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures, an adequate bowel preparation is mandatory, but a standardized protocol is still lacking for pediatric patients. Polyethylene glycol (PEG) is currently the most used laxative, but the amount of liquid to be taken orally is a large volume for the pediatric population and it may not be well tolerated. The aim of our preliminary trial was to evaluate efficacy, tolerability, and safety of sodium picosulphate-magnesium citrate (SPMC) used as bowel preparation before colonoscopy in children...

Bedside nurses require excellent observational and assessment skills. Being knowledgeable about common diseases that often affect the population is essential; however, it is often more challenging to be informed about life-threatening conditions that rarely develop. Such is the case with mesenteric ischemia, a rare but complicated condition, which is difficult to diagnose, carries a degree of mortality of about 40%-70%, and is more common in people older than 50 years. Mesenteric ischemia requires that nurses be aware of the different etiologies and presentations of this uncommon disease to alert physicians of changes in a patient's condition and detect clues that may assist with an accurate and prompt diagnosis...

At this time, there are no interactive mobile apps designed to increase informed decisions about colorectal cancer screening among women. Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death among women. The study's purpose was to explore the usability, acceptability, and satisfaction with a mobile app designed to increase colorectal cancer screening informed decisions among 50- to 64-year-old women. Using previous research, an interactive mobile app to increase informed decisions about colorectal cancer screening was developed and pilot tested among African American and Caucasian women (N = 41)...

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is increasing in children. When this lifelong illness is diagnosed in childhood, especially during adolescence, it may have a negative impact on children's quality of life. The aim of the present study was to illuminate the meaning of children's lived experience of ulcerative colitis. Seven children aged between 10 and 18 years were recruited from University Hospital South Sweden and interviewed about the phenomenon under scrutiny. Data were analyzed by means of a phenomenological hermeneutical method...

Colorectal carcinoma is one of the most common malignancies worldwide and the most prevalent cause of cancer mortality in China. The Miles operation and permanent colostomy are effective treatment. However, these affect the quality of life of patients as they alter normal defecation. Self-efficacy is used to define an individuals' assessments of their ability to perform a specific behavior successfully. It is regarded as an important belief that can predict health behaviors. The aim of this study was to explore the effect of a self-efficacy intervention on the quality of life of patients with a permanent colostomy...

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...
