BACKGROUND: The assessment of fibrosis degree in liver diseases is based on several non-invasive techniques, but none has been accurate. AIM: This study employed proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to identify metabolic profiles in serum and urine, specific for different fibrosis degree in chronic hepatitis C patients. METHOD: 71 plasma, 73 serum, and 578 urine samples were collected. All samples were analyzed using (1)H-NMR spectroscopy technique and three different NMR spectra were acquired for each serum/plasma sample...

BACKGROUND: Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is an autosomal-dominant disorder leading to telangiectases and arteriovenous malformations of the skin, mucosa, and viscera. Telangiectases in the upper gastrointestinal tract are known, but data regarding possible small-bowel involvement are poor. AIMS: To evaluate the role of capsule endoscopy (CE) to determine the prevalence of small-bowel telangiectases in HHT patients, and the role of endoscopic treatment of these patients with particular reference to the incidence of re-bleeding after treatment...

BACKGROUND & PURPOSE: Extra-corporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) can be considered in difficult common bile duct stones (DCBDS), with a success rate greater than 90% but data on stone recurrence after ESWL are limited. We performed a retrospective analysis to evaluate long-term outcomes in patients who underwent ESWL for DCBDS. METHODS: From May 1992 to October 2012, patients who underwent ESWL treatment for DCBDS, not amenable to endoscopic extraction, were included...

INTRODUCTION: This document is a summary of the French Intergroup guidelines regarding the management of anal carcinomas, published in November 2016. METHODS: It is a collaborative work produced under the auspices of the majority of the French medical societies involved in the management of anal cancer. It is based on the previous guidelines published in 2010. Recommendations are graded in three categories, according to the amount of evidence found in the literature...

The aim of our work was to test the usability of fecal calprotectin (FC) home-based test in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients. METHODS: IBD patients were prospectively recruited. They had to measure FC with a dedicated tool and smartphone application, 5 times at two weeks intervals over an 8 weeks period. They had to fill in a usability questionnaire at the first and the last FC measurement. A System Usability Scale (SUS: 0-100) and the Global Score of Usability (GSU: 0-85) were calculated...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Perception of quality of care is important in the management of patients with chronic diseases, particularly inflammatory bowel disease. AIMS AND METHODS: This longitudinal study aimed to investigate variations of the Quality of Care through the Patients' Eyes (QUOTE-IBD) questionnaire scores one year after the basal evaluation in the Studio Osservazionale quaLità cUre malatTIe crOniche intestiNali (SOLUTION-1) study. RESULTS: Of the cohort of 992 patients, 936 were evaluable...

BACKGROUND: Patients with adenomatous polyps are at increased risk for developing colorectal cancer based on the characteristics and number of polyps, but less is known about the individual and combined contribution of these factors. This study aimed to better characterize the risk of advanced adenoma and cancer in patients with positive baseline colonoscopy. METHODS: Patients who had polyps at baseline colonoscopy were included in this retrospective cohort study (N=1165) and were categorized into 6 groups: (1) 1-2 non-advanced adenomas (NAA's), (2) ≥3 NAA's, (3) advanced tubular adenoma, (4) small tubulovillous adenoma (TVA), (5) large TVA and (6) multiple advanced adenomas (MAA's)...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Liver fibrosis is the single most important prognostic factor in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). The predictive value of the AST to Platelet Ratio Index (APRI) score, originally developed for fibrosis assessment in hepatitis C virus (HCV) patients, is much less known in the context of NAFLD patients. METHODS: We retrospectively compared the performance of APRI and fibrosis 4 calculator (FIB-4) scores in NAFLD patients with documented liver biopsies, to their performance in chronic HCV patients...

Primary Biliary Cholangitis, previously known as Primary Biliary Cirrhosis, is a rare disease, which mainly affects women in their fifth to seventh decades of life. It is a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by a progressive damage of interlobular bile ducts leading to ductopenia, chronic cholestasis and bile acids retention. Even if the disease usually presents a long asymptomatic phase and a slow progression, in many patients it may progress faster toward cirrhosis and its complications. The 10year mortality is greater than in diseases such as human immunodeficiency virus/Hepatitis C Virus coinfection and breast cancer...
