AIMS: To evaluate the value of noninvasive tools for diagnosis of hepatic steatosis in patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB). METHODS: Consecutive treatment-naïve patients with CHB with body mass index less than 30kg/m(2) who underwent liver biopsy, ultrasound and FibroScan(®) were enrolled. The diagnostic performance of controlled attenuation parameter (CAP), hepatic steatosis index (HSI) and ultrasound for hepatic steatosis compared with liver biopsy was assessed...

BACKGROUND: Stenosis is the most common complication of Crohn's disease (CD). Long-term outcome of patients receiving tumour necrosis factor (TNF) antagonists for such disease complication is poorly understood. METHODS: 51 CD patients (from July 2006 to November 2015) who had a diagnosis of small bowel or colonic stenosis, diagnosed by colonoscopy and/or MRI enterography, and were treated with TNF antagonists (adalimumab or infliximab) were enrolled. The primary outcome was to assess the rate of success of TNF antagonists on avoiding abdominal surgery for stricturing CD patients...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Data regarding the impact of smoking on the success of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) eradication are conflicting, partially due to the fact that sociodemographic status is associated with both smoking and H. pylori treatment success. We aimed to assess the effect of smoking on H. pylori eradication rates after controlling for sociodemographic confounders. METHODS: Included were subjects aged 15 years or older, with a first time positive C(13)-urea breath test (C(13)-UBT) between 2007 to 2014, who underwent a second C(13)-UBT after receiving clarithromycin-based triple therapy...

BACKGROUND: To date, potential coeliac disease (PCD) occurring in adults remains an almost unexplored condition. AIMS: To explore the prognostic role of Marsh grade in adult PCD patients, and to evaluate the effects of gluten-containing diet (GCD) in asymptomatic PCD patients. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated all consecutive adult PCD patients followed-up for at least 6 years. Patients were divided into: Group A (patients with Marsh 0 histology) and Group B (Marsh 1 patients)...

BACKGROUND: Single-stage management of CBD stones comprises simultaneous common bile duct (CBD) clearance and cholecystectomy. The CBD can be cleared by using endoscopic treatment (ET) or laparoscopic surgery (LS) alone. AIMS: To determine the most rapid recovery after the single-stage laparoscopic management of CBD stones. METHODS: Patients with CBD stones treated at either of two centers (one performing ET only and one performing LS only for single-stage treatment) were included...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: The early hospital readmission of patients with decompensated cirrhosis is a current problem. A study is presented on the incidence, the impact on mortality, and the predictive factors of early hospital readmission. PATIENTS AND METHODS: On the study included 112 cirrhotic patients, discharged after some decompensation between January 2013 and May 2014. Multivariate analyses were performed to identify predictors of early readmission and mortality...

INTRODUCTION: Recent guidelines have been published by a consensus of international experts (2016 ENETS guidelines). Nevertheless, in case of pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (panNEN) the ENETS guidelines fail to propose a unique strategy in some situations, due to the lack of high-level of evidence and the absence of formal agreement between the experts drawing up the guidelines. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A survey of 25 questions on panNEN was sent to 104 French experts challenging the guidelines...

INTRODUCTION: Patients with metastatic or locally advanced, non-resectable, grade 1 or 2 well-differentiated duodeno-pancreatic (WDDP) NETs are treated following European guidelines. Patients (Pts) with aggressive disease, i.e. progressive and/or symptomatic metastases and/or with significant hepatic invasion (>30-50%), and/or bone metastases, anti-tumour therapy should receive systemic combination of chemotherapy once disease control is obtained. AIM(S): The aim is to stop chemotherapy until progression...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Whether Fibroscan thresholds can be immediately adopted for none, some or all other shear wave elastography techniques has not been tested. The aim of the present study was to test the concordance of the findings obtained from 7 of the most recent ultrasound elastography machines with respect to Fibroscan. METHODS: Sixteen hepatitis C virus-related patients with fibrosis ≥2 and having reliable results at Fibroscan were investigated in two intercostal spaces using 7 different elastography machines...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: In view of paucity of literature we analyzed our experience of acute recurrent pancreatitis (ARP) to study clinical profile and long-term outcome. METHODS: Over 13 years, 93 consecutive children (≤18 years) diagnosed to have ARP were included in this study. Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography was done at baseline and on follow-up. Common mutations for serine-protease-inhibitor (SPINK1 N34S), protease inhibitor (PRSS1 R122S) and cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR deltaF508, 5T) were studied in 22 idiopathic cases...

BACKGROUND: Transmural healing (TH) of Crohn's disease (CD) is a still unexplored and interesting outcome correlated to concept of deep remission. AIM: To assess the rate of TH in CD patients treated with anti-TNF alpha agents using two cross-sectional procedures: bowel sonography (BS) and magnetic resonance enterography (MRE). METHODS: We performed a 2-year observational longitudinal study, evaluating steroid-free clinical remission (CR), mucosal healing (MH), and TH in CD patients who would complete a 2-year treatment period with anti-TNFs...
