Colorectal cancer (CRC) is an important public health issue not only because of its high incidence but also for its high mortality rate. When CRC is diagnosed at an early stage, the 5-year relative survival rate reaches 89.9%. However, only 39% of patients with CRC are diagnosed at this stage. Screening decreases both the incidence of CRC and the number of CRC-related deaths. There are several options available for screening, and colonoscopy is one of the most common methods utilized in the United States. Screening colonoscopy is associated with durable protection from CRC...

In 2016, the US Food and Drug Administration issued a warning about the risk of hepatitis B virus (HBV) reactivation in some patients receiving direct-acting antiviral (DAA) therapy for hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. HBV reactivation can occur soon after the start of DAA therapy; thus, monitoring liver enzymes during DAA therapy is important in patients at risk. The clinical outcomes of HBV reactivation in this patient population may resemble the outcomes seen in immunosuppressed patients receiving chemotherapy...

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the esophagus diagnosed by the presence of esophageal symptoms accompanied by an esophageal eosinophilic infiltrate. EoE has an increasing worldwide prevalence and can be a cause of dysphagia and food impactions. There is an important role for the use of proton pump inhibitors in the diagnostic pathway of EoE. Treatment paradigms for EoE aim to minimize esophageal inflammation and improve symptom control. Dietary therapy targets dietary allergens and encompasses the elemental diet, the allergy testing-directed elimination diet, and the empiric elimination diet...

Liza Bronner Murrison, Kenneth E Sherman
Globally, hepatitis E virus (HEV) is the most common cause of acute viral hepatitis. HEV is endemic in many developing countries, yet it is far more common in industrialized, nonendemic countries than previously recognized. Nonetheless, HEV remains poorly characterized and is frequently unidentified or misdiagnosed by clinicians. Manifestation of disease, source of infection, and route of transmission vary by HEV genotype and epidemiology in endemic and nonendemic settings worldwide. HEV infection can be acute or chronic, further complicating the presentation, diagnosis, prognosis, and natural history of disease...

Colonoscopy is the most widely used screening modality for the detection and removal of colon polyps and for the prevention of colorectal cancer. To identify all colon lesions and reduce the risk of colorectal cancer, it is important to perform a complete colonoscopy. The success of screening colonoscopy depends upon several parameters, including bowel preparation and adenoma detection rate. Incomplete colonoscopy rates vary from 4% to 25% and are associated with higher rates of interval proximal colon cancer...

Ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) is the preferred surgical treatment for patients who undergo colectomy and wish to avoid a permanent ileostomy. The overall outcomes are positive, with an improved quality of life and stable long-term pouch retention. However, certain conditions or disease states may be at a higher risk of pouch dysfunction or failure. For example, obese patients have an increased risk for postoperative complications. In addition, women with a history of obstetric complications and elderly patients with a history of sphincter damage or dysfunction may be at an increased risk for postoperative incontinence, although quality-of-life indices do not necessarily correlate with incontinence scores...
