BACKGROUND/AIMS: In recent years, the role of the gut microbiota has emerged in several diseases. Herein we aimed to determine the fecal microbiota, endotoxin levels, and inflammation markers in patients with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and healthy controls. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 46 NASH patients and 38 healthy controls were included. NASH patients were diagnosed according to the steatosis, activity, and fibrosis score/fatty liver inhibition of progression algorithm...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: We aimed to evaluate postoperative fecal incontinence scales of children who underwent laparoscopic proctocolectomy and ileal J-pouch anastomosis for familial adenomateous polyposis (FAP) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fecal incontinence scores were collected at 3 months post-surgery. A retrospective chart review was also performed to obtain the demographic data and operative technical details. RESULTS: The postoperative Wexner Fecal Incontinence Score was 0 in 9 of 11 patients and satisfactory in the remaining two...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Identifying predictors of endoscopic recurrence (ER) has become very important to guide the decision of postoperative strategy. This study aimed to determine the rate of endoscopic recurrence until 12 months after ileocolic resection for Crohn disease (CD) in a cohort and identify its possible predictors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective single-center study that included patients with CD who underwent ileocolic resection between 2003 and 2014...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: To evaluate the effect of hepatic steatosis on the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) of hepatic fibrosis in patients with HCV genotype 4-related chronic hepatitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Overall, 268 chronic hepatitis C patients (164 males and 104 females) underwent liver biopsy for fibrosis assessment by the METAVIR score and grading for hepatic steatosis. They were classified into early fibrosis stage (F1, F2) and advanced fibrosis stage (F3, F4)...

A wandering spleen is a rare condition characterized by the malposition of the spleen due to laxity or absence of its supporting ligaments. Although Gaucher disease generally presents with massive splenomegaly, which one of the predisposing causes of a wandering spleen, literature shows only one report of a wandering spleen in a child with Gaucher disease. In this case presentation, a 13-year-oldadolescent with Gaucher disease on enzyme replacement treatment was presented, who was detected having an abdominal mass on a routine visit and diagnosed with partial torsion of a wandering spleen associated with left lobe hypoplasia of the liver...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Biliary atresia (BA) is the main cause of neonatal cholestasis and the primary reason for infant liver transplants worldwide. It is an obliterative cholangiopathy observed only in children and caused by progressive inflammation and fibrosis of the bile duct. We collaborated with a liver transplantation center to investigate the effects of follow-up in patients with BA. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Medical records of 99 patients who were diagnosed with BA and monitored at our center from 1990 to 2002 (27 patients) and from 2003 to 2015 (72 patients) were analyzed retrospectively...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: To evaluate the feasibility and clinical outcome of a nutritional algorithm based on target calorie intake commenced as enteral nutrition (EN) alone or in combination with supplemental parenteral nutrition (SPN) among hospitalized patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In total, 301 hospitalized patients who were provided with nutritional support, including EN (n=125) or EN+SPN (n=176), due to various medical conditions during their hospitalization were included in this study conducted at Antalya Training and Research Hospital...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: In the Chinese population, gastric cancer (GC) is ranked as the third most common type of cancer. Although the exact etiology of GC development is unclear, several factors, including genetic and environmental, have been identified as risk factors. Variations in cytokine genes and their receptors have been related to a higher risk of GC. A single nucleotide polymorphism in the promoter region of tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) (-308G>A) has been associated with a higher risk of GC and in the present study we evaluated its possible association with GC in a Chinese cohort...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease are chronic inflammatory diseases. Genetic, immunologic, and microbial factors play an important role in their pathogenesis. Extracellular matrix protein 1 (ECM1), a gene related to mucosal barrier function, has been shown to be associated with UC. This study aims to determine the relationship between ECM1 gene rs3737240 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and UC in a group of Turkish patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ninety-four UC patients and 120 healthy controls were enrolled in the study...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The identification of prognostic factors of metastatic development is one of the most important issues in colorectal cancer (CRC) research. The aim of this study was to determine the usefulness of colon tumor characteristics, including location, circumferential location, histological type, and histological grade, as predictors of metastases. MATERIALS AND METHODS: To identify potential predictors of CRC spread, we analyzed data of 191 patients who had undergone surgery for colon tumors...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Helicobacter pylori stimulates the host's toll-like receptors (TLRs). Single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of TLRs is related to the manipulation of regulatory cytokines and also implicated in the varied outcomes of the inflammatory response, including the development of precancerous lesions of gastric mucosa and disease progression. We hypothesized that TLR10 rs10004195 polymorphism is associated with gastric mucosal patterns. MATERIALS AND METHODS: TLR10 rs10004195 polymorphisms were identified in a total of 400 gastritis patients using the TagMan SNP genotyping assay...
