Post-transplantation lymphoproliferative disorders (PTLDs) are lymphoid proliferations or lymphomas that are the second most common tumors in adult transplant recipients. Most cases of PTLD are attributed to Epstein-Barr virus, which induces B-cell proliferation and occurs in the setting of severe immunosuppression after solid organ or bone marrow transplantation. The disorder is seen in 1-3% of liver transplant recipients and has a variable presentation chronology. Herein, we chronicle a case of aggressive B-cell lymphoma (PTLD WHO class-3) presenting with isolated gastrointestinal involvement in an Epstein-Barr virus-negative patient with living-donor liver transplantation, 4 years after receiving the transplant...

Background: There is evidence that the financial crisis has deleteriously affected scientific output. We aimed to assess the dynamics of Greek publications in gastroenterology and hepatology over the last ten years. Methods: Data were collected from SCImago. The average annual growth rate (AAGR) of total and citable documents published in Greece in the field of gastroenterology and hepatology was compared with that of cardiology, surgery, and radiology. In addition, it was compared with the corresponding rates in Belgium, Ireland and Portugal...

Background: Studying the role of gastroenterologists' attire can provide insight into patients' perceptions and help us optimize the physician-patient relationship. In this study we assessed patients' preference concerning gastroenterologists' attire, and its influence on patients' trust, empathy and perceptions of the quality of care in the clinic and endoscopic suite. Methods: A cross-sectional survey was conducted from August 2016 to February 2017. A total of 240 consecutive patients who presented to the Gastroenterology Department at the University of Florida in Jacksonville both in the clinic and endoscopic suite were included in this study...

Background: Hybrid therapy is a promising first-line regimen for Helicobacter pylori ( H. pylori ) eradication. We evaluated a hybrid therapy, assessing the impact of antibiotic resistance on eradication outcome. Methods: This was a prospective study that included 155 treatment-naïve patients diagnosed with H. pylori infection by positive CLO-test, confirmed with histology and/or culture. The hybrid therapy consisted of 40 mg esomeprazole and 1 g amoxicillin for 14 days, with the addition of 500 mg clarithromycin and 500 mg metronidazole for the final 7 days (all b...

Background: The efficacy and applicability of molecular testing to guide the selection of antibiotics in triple Helicobacter pylori ( H. pylori) eradication regimens have not been reported. We tested a 7-day, genotypic resistance-guided triple H. pylori eradication therapy in a high-resistance setting. Methods: Consecutive dyspeptic patients with H. pylori infection were prospectively enrolled. Genotypic resistances to clarithromycin ( 23SrRNA mutations) and fluoroquinolones ( gyrA mutations) were determined from gastric biopsy specimens using a commercially available molecular assay (GenoTypeâ HelicoDR)...

Full-thickness rectal prolapse (FTRP) is generally believed to result from a sliding hernia through a pelvic fascial defect, or from rectal intussusception. The currently accepted cause is a pelvic floor disorder. Surgery is the only definitive treatment, although the ideal therapeutic option for FTRP has not been determined. Auffret reported the first FTRP surgery using a perineal approach in 1882, and rectopexy using conventional laparotomy was first described by Sudeck in 1922. Laparoscopy was first used by Bermann in 1992, and laparoscopic surgery is now used worldwide; robotic surgery was first described by Munz in 2004...

REVIEW
Nikolaos Lazaridis, Georgios Germanidis
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a functional bowel disorder associated with abdominal pain and alterations in bowel habits. The presence of IBS greatly impairs patients' quality of life and imposes a high economic burden on the community; thus, there is intense pressure to reveal its elusive pathogenesis. Many etiological mechanisms have been implicated, but the pathophysiology of the syndrome remains unclear. As a result, novel drug development has been slow and no pharmacological intervention is universally accepted...

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a multisystemic autoimmune connective tissue disorder; in the gastrointestinal tract, the esophagus is the most commonly affected organ. Symptoms of esophageal disease are due to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and esophageal motor dysfunction. Since the development of high-resolution manometry (HRM), this method has been preferred for the study of SSc patients with esophageal involvement. Using HRM, classic scleroderma esophagus, defined as absent or ineffective peristalsis of the distal esophagus in combination with a hypotensive lower esophageal sphincter, was found in as many as 55% of SSc patients...

Minimal hepatic encephalopathy (MHE) is the mildest form of hepatic encephalopathy (HE). It affects the performance of psychometric tests focused on attention, working memory, psychomotor speed, and visuospatial ability, as well as electrophysiological and other functional brain measures. MHE is a frequent complication of liver disease, affecting up to 80% of tested patients. By being related to falls, an impairment in fitness to drive and the development of overt HE, MHE severely affects the lives of patients and caregivers by altering their quality of life and their socioeconomic status...

REVIEW
Pieter-Jan Cuyle, Hans Prenen
Neuroendocrine tumors are heterogeneous, rare malignancies that arise most frequently in the gastroenteropancreatic tract (GEPNET). The therapeutic armamentarium for the treatment of GEPNETs has expanded significantly over the last two decades, however the ideal sequencing strategy remains controversial. As this disease may be relatively slow-growing, patients are expected to be treated for longer periods, so that even mild toxicities can influence quality of life, compliance and outcome in the long run. Prospective data on optimal adverse event management are lacking and recommendations are largely based on expert opinion and drug prescribing information...

REVIEW
Samuel O Adegbola, Anthea Pisani, Kapil Sahnan, Phil Tozer, Pierre Ellul, Janindra Warusavitarne
Crohn's disease is increasingly thought to encompass multiple possible phenotypes. Perianal manifestations account for one such phenotype and represent an independent disease modifier. In its more severe form, perianal Crohn's disease confers a higher risk of a severe and disabling disease course, relapses, hospital admissions and operations. This, in turn, imposes a considerable burden and disability on patients. Identification of the precise manifestation is important, as management is nuanced, with both medical and surgical components, and is best undertaken in a multidisciplinary setting for both diagnosis and ongoing treatment...
