Liver cirrhosis is a diffuse chronic liver disease affecting the entire liver. The fibrosis accumulation and distribution in the liver are known to be heterogeneous. "Localized" or "focal" cirrhosis is only anecdotically reported. Acute hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection is uncommon in western countries, especially in temperate climate areas and is very often missed or underdiagnosed. However, it may be responsible of up to 15% of acute-on-chronic liver failure cases. We present the case of a 35-year-old patient with a very uncommon association of Budd-Chiari syndrome secondary to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) developed on a non-cirrhotic right liver lobe and secondary biliary cirrhosis of the left liver lobe, that further complicated with acute HEV infection leading to acute-on-chronic liver failure and death...

Primary esophageal Paget's disease is rare. Only a few case reports have described the intraepithelial papillary capillary loop (IPCL) pattern obtained by magnified Narrow Band Imaging (M-NBI) endoscopy in this rare pathology. This report highlights the usefulness of M-NBI and the successful diagnosis using a large bloc specimen obtained by endoscopic mucosal resection with the cap method (EMR-c). A 53-year-old man was referred to endoscopic examination for dysphagia. The endoscopic image revealed a ring-shaped scarring of the esophagus suggestive for eosinophilic esophagitis...

Celiac disease (CD) is a common and chronic disorder requiring a long-life gluten-free diet. There is evidence that asymptomatic or subclinical presentation of CD has increased in the last decades, so that several cases are diagnosed during adulthood or even in the elderly. Celiac disease patients are at an increased risk of developing malignancies, particularly when the disease is diagnosed in the elderly. We describe a case of a challenging diagnosis of small bowel adenocarcinoma which developed in a patient with CD discovered only in the elderly...

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is one of the major causes of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) worldwide. In the last decades, several studies have showed a lower rate of HCC occurrence or recurrence in patients with HCV-related cirrhosis after interferon-based antiviral therapies compared to untreated controls, even without reaching viral clearance. Unfortunately, interferon regimens could only yield viral clearance in approximately half of the patients. The recent development of new all-oral regimens with direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) has radically improved the cure rate to above 90%...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Aspirin is one of the most widely used medication for its analgesic and anti-platelet properties and thus a major cause for gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. This study compared the preventive effect of histamine-2 receptor antagonists (H2RAs) and proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) against chronic low-dose aspirin (LDA)-related GI bleeding and ulcer formation. METHODS: Electronic databases of Pubmed, Embase and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials were searched for human observations (randomised controlled trials and observational studies) comparing the long term effects of PPIs and H2RAs treatment in the prevention of GI bleeding or ulcer formation in patients on chronic LDA treatment listed up till September 30, 2016...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Emerging minimally invasive treatments for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) can significantly improve a patient's prognosis, but they may alter the imaging features of the treated nodules. This study focuses on a series of patients presenting with a rare pathology, the nodule-in-nodule imaging pattern of HCC, analyzes the imaging features and discusses possible approaches for the diagnosis of tumoral recurrence. METHOD: Nine patients recruited over two years, having HCC with nodule-in-nodule imaging pattern on diagnosis, and treated by transarterial chemoembolization were monitored by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Literature data suggest that HCV genotype-1b is present in 93-99% of the Romanian patients infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV). We present the genotyping tests recently performed on patients with HCV and advanced fibrosis eligible for the Direct-Acting Antiviral (DAA) therapy, as well as the prevalence of these cases across Romania. METHODS: The genotyping method was performed on 7,421 HCV patients with advanced fibrosis. The detection method was automatic real time PCR platform M2000 (Abbott)...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: There are minimal reports of pregnancy in the chronic intestinal failure (CIF)/ home parenteral nutrition (HPN) population, with some concern relating to the risk associated with such pregnancies. The aim of this retrospective observational study was to evaluate pregnancy experience and outcomes in patients with CIF requiring HPN in a national UK CIF referral centre. METHOD: All known pregnancies in patients treated with HPN for CIF between 1982 and 2016 were identified retrospectively from a prospectively maintained database...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Patients with small bowel angioectasias (SBAs) can be difficult to manage as they are generally elderly with multiple co-morbidities. Angioectasias are multiple and tend to recur. Argon plasma coagulation (APC), despite being a commonly used method to treat these patients has an associated persistent rate of re-bleeding necessitating additional treatment to manage these patients. METHODS: All patients with refractory iron deficiency anaemia secondary to SBAs were retrospectively subdivided into two groups...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: With improved technology, the size of artificial ulcers after endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) has increased. The aim of our study was to examine the risk factors for delayed gastric ulcer healing after ESD, including the possible benefit of potassium-competitive acid blocker (P-CAB) treatment. METHODS: The primary outcome was the rate of healing of the artificial ulcers induced by ESD at 8 weeks post intervention. Design - retrospective case series...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Early-stage gastric cancer (EGC) found after H. pylori eradication often has non-tumorous epithelium on the tumorous tissue and/or surface differentiation of tumors, which may confuse endoscopic and histologic diagnosis. We investigated the diagnostic reliability of EGC using conventional white light endoscopy (WLE), chromoendoscopy (CE) using indigo carmine, and magnifying endoscopy with narrow band imaging (ME-NBI) in patients with EGC with or without history of prior H...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Evaluation of severity and extension of gastric atrophy and intestinal metaplasia is recommended to identify subjects with a high risk for gastric cancer. The inter-observer agreement for the assessment of gastric atrophy is reported to be low. The aim of the study was to evaluate the inter-observer agreement for the assessment of severity and extension of gastric atrophy using oriented and unoriented gastric biopsy samples. Furthermore, the quality of biopsy specimens in oriented and unoriented samples was analyzed...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Long-term outcomes in patients with functional dyspepsia remain elusive. Acotiamide, a prokinetic drug, has been available in Japan since 2013. The aim of this study was to assess long-term outcomes in patients with functional dyspepsia treated with acotiamide. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 79 consecutive patients with functional dyspepsia whose symptoms improved with acotiamide therapy and who were followed for more than one year. All patients underwent esophagogastroduodenoscopy prior to acotiamide therapy...

BACKGROUND: Intubation failure (IF) occurs when an endoscopist is unable to progress via the oropharynx into the upper oesophagus. AIM: To assess incidence and aetiology of IF and predictors of structural pharyngeal abnormalities in patients with IF. METHODS: All gastroscopies (n=26,130) performed in our centre, between August 2010 and August 2016 were retrospectively reviewed. Barium radiology and repeat gastroscopy findings were evaluated for structural causes of IF...
