BACKGROUND: Ritonavir-boosted Paritaprevir, Ombitasvir and Dasabuvir plus Ribavirin is one of the current recommended therapies for HCV genotype 1b monoinfected patients in compensated (Child-Pugh A) cirrhosis. Whether it is known that the worsening of liver function is a rare but possible complication of Ritonavir-boosted Paritaprevir, Ombitasvir and Dasabuvir therapy, to our knowledge no description of treatment-related acute liver failure is available in the literature. CASE PRESENTATION: An 84-year-old Caucasian man with chronic compensated HCV genotype 1b cirrhosis received Ritonavir-boosted Paritaprevir, Ombitasvir and Dasabuvir plus Ribavirin therapy...

BACKGROUND: Alveolar hemorrhage is a potentially life-threatening condition which is usually managed by the pulmonologist. When considering its etiology, there is a rare association that sets the disease into the hands of the gastroenterologist. CASE PRESENTATION: We report the case of a 48 year-old female who was admitted to the intensive care unit for severe anemia and hemoptysis. On imaging, diffuse pulmonary infiltrates suggestive of alveolar hemorrhage were detected and a diagnosis of pulmonary hemosiderosis was made...

A 59-year-old woman was referred for investigation of a pancreatic cystic lesion. Computed tomography revealed a well-demarcated, multilocular cyst, approximately 4 cm in size, at the pancreas head. Endoscopic ultrasonography demonstrated honeycomb-like components at the cyst margin. The cyst was associated with a widely-dilated upstream main pancreatic duct (MPD). Endoscopic retrograde pancreatography demonstrated a communication between the stenotic Santorini's duct and the cyst. Aspiration cytology from the cyst demonstrated clusters of mucinous epithelial neoplasm cells...

BACKGROUND: Since its description in 1957, Couinaud`s classification of the segmental organization of the liver has remained valid. However, recent investigations by 3-dimensional computed tomography suggest a significant variability of the vascular anatomy and segment volume. Here, we report a surprise finding during the laparoscopic cholecystectomy of a patient with Conradi-Hünermann-Happle syndrome, in whom the liver segments were not fused. CASE REPORT: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy was performed because of recurrent biliary pancreatitis in a 47 year-old male patient, who had been diagnosed with Conradi-Hünermann-Happle syndrome...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) therapy is challenging and suppression of acid secretion or prokinetics do not cure all cases. Some drugs with protective action on the esophageal mucosa have been used alternatively or in association with proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and/or prokinetics. The Romanian Society of Neurogastroenterology undertook an Evidence-Based analysis, from which this position paper evolved. METHODS: We performed a systematic literature search in PubMed until October 2015, using the terms: sucralfate, guaiazulene, gaiazulene, dimethicone, alginate, antacids and gastroesophageal reflux...

BACKGROUND: Oral and poster presentations at annual national meetings of the Romanian Society of Gastroenterology and Hepatology (RSGH) provide a forum for education, communication and discussion of new research. However, for the wide-spread dissemination of the new research work, each presentation should be subsequently published as a full-text article in peer-reviewed, indexed journals. AIM: to evaluate the publication rate of full-text articles in peer-reviewed journals after being first presented as abstracts at two consecutive RSGH annual meetings...

There has been great interest in the development of non-invasive techniques for the diagnosis of liver fibrosis in chronic liver diseases, including ultrasound elastographic methods. Some of these methods have already been adequately studied for the non-invasive assessment of diffuse liver diseases. Others, however, such as two-dimensional Shear Wave Elastography (SWE), of more recent appearance, have yet to be validated and some aspects are for the moment incompletely elucidated. This review discusses some of the aspects related to two-dimensional SWE: the examination technique, the examination performance indicators, intra and interobserver agreement and clinical applications...

REVIEW
Jelena Djokić Kovač, Marc-André Weber
Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) and primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) are the most common immune-mediated chronic cholestatic liver diseases leading to cirrhosis and liver failure. Although magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is not a necessary procedure for the diagnosis of PBC, MRI is recommended for monitoring disease progression and early detection of complications. Even though liver cirrhosis subtypes have similar MR imaging features, there are some findings which could indicate PBC, such as the periportal halo sign...

MiRNAs are a class of potential gene regulators of critical importance in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). This review aims to present the connection between gut microbiota, probiotics administration and microRNA (miRNA) expression in IBD. It also brings into question cross-kingdom RNAi (RNA interference). Not only that gut host cells garden the intestinal microbiome via miRNA, but also strong evidence supports the idea that different species of bacteria have an impact on the intestinal immune response by modulating miRNA expression...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a serious neuropsychiatric sequela emerging in the advanced stages of cirrhosis. The gut microbiota plays an important role in the development of HE. The aim of the study was to analyze the dynamic interplay between microbiota and Blastocystis in cirrhotic patients with or without encephalopathy. METHODS: The study was designed as cross-sectional study. A total of 37 patients from the Ankara city, admitted to the University Hospital within a 6-month period prior to enrolment into the study were included in the study...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Prognostic factors for poor evolution are critical in the setting of limited access to liver transplantation for patients with cirrhosis. We aimed to investigate the impact of hypoxaemia on the outcome in cirrhosis and the evolution of arterial oxygen tension during long-term follow-up in these patients. METHODS: Consecutive cirrhotic patients were prospectively enroled and followed-up in our tertiary referral center. Clinical features, biological tests, arterial blood gases, NT-proBNP levels, pulse oximetry measurements, 12-lead ECG, and transthoracic contrast echocardiography were documented on enrolment...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) is characterized by a rapid progression to multiple organ failure and is associated with a very high mortality rate of 50-90%. Novel therapies are being investigated such as Erythropoietin (EPO). The aim of this prospective cohort study was to analyse the value of EPO in predicting prognosis and determine which patients may benefit most from EPO therapy. METHODS: According to the EASL-CLIF criteria, 104 consecutive patients were diagnosed with ACLF, and separated into two groups based on the type of insult: bleeding (Group A=31) or non-bleeding (Group B=73)...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Recently, treatment goals in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in clinical trials have shifted from mainly symptom-based to more mucosa-driven. Real world data on treatment priorities are lacking. We aimed to investigate the current practice and most commonly used definitions of IBD treatment targets among Dutch gastroenterologists. METHODS: Dutch gastroenterologists were asked to participate in a computer-based nation-wide survey. We asked questions on demographics, opinion and current practice regarding IBD treatment targets...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Recent studies have suggested the therapeutic effect of antimicrobial agents on primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). Therefore, we aimed to evaluate the efficacy of oral vancomycin in patients with PSC. METHOD: A triple blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled trial was performed on 29 patients (2015-2016) in the Imam Khomeini Hospital, Tehran, Iran (NCT02605213). Patients were divided into two groups by simple randomization method: placebo 11 (37...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Both chronic inflammation and reduced immunosurveillance contribute to malignancy development in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Previous literature suggests that especially Crohn's disease patients are at an increased risk for developing gastric cancer (GC). This study aimed to identify risk factors for GC development in IBD and to compare the clinical characteristics of GC in IBD to those in the general population. METHODS: We retrospectively searched the Dutch Pathology Database to identify all Dutch IBD patients with GC between January 2004 and December 2008...
