OBJECTIVE: Perianal disease is a debilitating condition that frequently occurs in Crohn's disease (CD) patients. It is currently unknown whether its incidence has changed in the era of frequent immunomodulator use and biological availability. We studied the incidence and outcome of perianal and rectovaginal fistulas over the past two decades in our population-based Inflammatory Bowel Disease South-Limburg cohort. PATIENTS AND METHODS: All 1162 CD patients registered in the Inflammatory Bowel Disease South-Limburg registry were included...

BACKGROUND: The mean age of patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in the USA has been increasing. Despite the increasing proportion of HCV-infected elderly patients, this group is under-represented in clinical trials of HCV treatment. AIM: We aimed to describe the real-world effectiveness of direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) among elderly patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively identified 17 487 HCV-infected patients who were started on treatment with sofosbuvir, ledipasvir/sofosbuvir, or paritaprevir/ombitasvir/ritonavir/dasabuvir-based regimens in the Veterans Affairs Healthcare System between 1 January 2014 and 30 June 2015...

Endoscopic variceal ligation (EVL) is often recommended as an effective method for the treatment of esophageal varices, despite the important tendency of variceal recurrence. Recent studies indicate that combining EVL with argon plasma coagulation (APC) may be a more effective therapy than ligation alone. To investigate these findings, we carried out a systematic review and meta-analysis to compare the safety and efficacy of EVL combined with APC versus ligation alone for the secondary prophylaxis of esophageal variceal hemorrhage...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) prognostic scores could be useful in addition to the Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer (BCLC) system to clarify patient prognosis and guide treatment decision. The NIACE (tumor Nodularity, Infiltrative nature of the tumor, serum Alpha-fetoprotein level, Child-Pugh stage, ECOG performance status) score distinguishes different prognosis groups among BCLC A, B, and C HCC patients. Our aims are to evaluate the NIACE score and its additive value in two HCC cohorts treated either by surgery or by chemoembolization, and then according to the BCLC recommendations...

OBJECTIVES: Two-dimensional shear-wave elastography (2D-SWE) is an ultrasound-based technique for the noninvasive assessment of tissue stiffness. In contrast to the well-established point-shear-wave elastography (pSWE) method acoustic radiation force impulse imaging, there is little evidence on the performance and usefulness of 2D-SWE in the assessment of liver stiffness. Thus, the aim of our study was to compare 2D-SWE versus pSWE. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 2D-SWE and pSWE were performed in 20 cirrhotic patients, 20 healthy individuals and an elasticity phantom...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Refractory ascites has a poor prognosis. Recurrent large-volume paracentesis is the current standard of care; however, it results in circulatory dysfunction and renal dysfunction, and hospitalization is commonly required. Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt placement is not an option in a substantial number of patients because of contraindications. The placement of a tunneled peritoneal drainage catheter has been shown to be effective in patients with malignant ascites...

OBJECTIVE: Dyspepsia is a common condition and has a huge impact on quality of life and working capacity, but its causes are not well understood. An association between stress and dyspepsia has been debated for decades, but the issue has not been resolved. We examined the 3-year risk of redeeming a proton-pump inhibitor or an H2-receptor antagonist as a proxy of dyspepsia according to the level of perceived stress. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: Perceived stress was measured in a general health survey of 16 124 Danes aged older than 16 years of age in 2010 using Cohen's Perceived Stress Scale...
