Background: There are roughly 300,000 hospitalizations for acute pancreatitis annually in the United States. Many of the affected patients at our institution undergo computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) unnecessarily early during their admissions. We hypothesize that cross-sectional imaging within 48 h of admission in patients meeting the criteria for acute, mild pancreatitis is over-utilized and does not change management. Methods: We performed a retrospective analysis of patients with a discharge diagnosis of acute pancreatitis from our tertiary care institution from January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2015...

Background: Elderly patients have a high risk of adverse outcomes after surgery. Therefore, it is essential to determine the predictive factors for postoperative morbidity in elderly patients undergoing gastric cancer surgery. Methods: A total of 544 patients who underwent elective gastrectomy for gastric cancer at Yodogawa Christian Hospital between January 2007 and December 2015 were divided into the elderly group (age ≥70 years, n=282) and a control group (age <70 years, n=262)...

Background: This study evaluated the efficacy, safety, and impact on renal function of everolimus in patients after liver transplantation (LT) with or without mycophenolate mofetil (MMF). Methods: We evaluated LT recipients with calcineurin inhibitor (CNI)-related renal dysfunction after everolimus initiation. Laboratory data, including evaluation of renal function based on glomerular filtration rate (GFR) at baseline (i.e., everolimus initiation) and at the end of follow up, were analyzed...

Background: Bacterial infections in cirrhotic patients remain a challenge. Presepsin has been proposed as a valuable sepsis biomarker. We aimed to assess plasma presepsin levels in uncomplicated cirrhotic patients and to correlate them with liver disease severity and complicating events, defined as documented bacterial infection with or without concomitant portal hypertension-related bleeding, or bleeding without documented bacterial infection, with or without acute kidney injury. Methods: We prospectively evaluated the presepsin levels of 108 consecutive uncomplicated cirrhotic patients with compensated (55, 50...

Background: It is estimated that 17,000 people who inject drugs (PWID) in Greece have hepatitis C virus (HCV) viremia. The aim of our study was to explore the characteristics of the HCV-infected, direct acting antiviral (DAA)-naïve PWID. Methods: This is a retrospective analysis of PWID with HCV infection. We selected data from six liver clinics during the period from 1st May 2014 to 31st May 2017 in order to record the characteristics of infected PWID. Results: We included 800 PWID with HCV infection (78...

Background: It has been suggested that hepatitis C virus (HCV) core+1 protein plays a crucial role in the viral life cycle, potentially affecting liver cirrhosis and the development of hepatocellular carcinoma. Methods: To investigate its relationship with the outcome of HCV standard combination therapy with peginterferon-α plus ribavirin, we screened 139 consecutive HCV patients (119 with chronic HCV infection and 20 who spontaneously cleared HCV) for the presence of anti-core+1 antibodies (Abs)...

Background: Real-world data on management patterns and long-term outcomes of patients with inadequately controlled Crohn's disease (CD) in Greece are scarce. Methods: This was a multicenter, prospective observational study of 18-65-year-old CD patients whose physicians judged that their current therapy was inadequate to control their condition and therefore decided to switch treatment. Data were collected at enrollment (time of switch), and 30, 54 and 104 weeks post-enrollment...

Background: The aim of the study was to assess the efficacy and safety of tofacitinib and its impact on quality of life in patients with moderate-to-severe ulcerative colitis. Methods: We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials comparing tofacitinib with placebo or any active comparator. We searched Medline, Embase, the Cochrane Library and gray literature for articles published up to May 2017. We synthesized data using a fixed-effect model...

Background: Abdominal fat type and distribution have been associated with complicated Crohn's disease and adverse postoperative outcomes. Few studies have assessed the abdominal distribution of fat and lean stores in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and compared this with healthy controls. This retrospective study aimed to compare the abdominal body composition in IBD patients who failed medical treatment and who underwent computed tomography (CT) imaging prior to gastrointestinal surgery with healthy controls...

REVIEW
Andrew Ofosu, Daryl Ramai, Tagore Sunkara, Douglas G Adler
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) has evolved from a diagnostic and therapeutic technique into a therapeutic-centered modality for managing biliary disorders. Despite its many therapeutic benefits, radiation exposure from ERCP fluoroscopy is of concern and should be minimized as much as possible. Although the use of personal equipment offers significant protection against radiation, attention has been given to the development of non-radiation-based ERCP techniques. To this end, digital cholangioscopy and endoscopic ultrasound-assisted ERCP have emerged as alternatives to standard ERCP...

The methionine and folate cycles play a fundamental role in cell physiology and their alteration is involved in liver injury and hepatocarcinogenesis. Glycine N-methyltransferase is implicated in methyl group supply, DNA methylation, and nucleotide biosynthesis. It regulates the cellular S-adenosylmethionine/S-adenosylhomocysteine ratio and S-adenosylmethionine-dependent methyl transfer reactions. Glycine N-methyltransferase is absent in fast-growing hepatocellular carcinomas and present at a low level in slower growing HCC ones...

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) represents a global burden on healthcare that affects over 150 million people worldwide. In the past, HCV genotype 3 was considered difficult to treat relative to other genotypes. Genotype 3 has been associated with a higher rate of complications, including fatty liver disease, fibrosis, hepatocellular carcinoma and mortality. However, with the advent of first- and second-generation direct-acting antivirals, genotype 3 can be treated effectively. Additionally, these new drugs are well tolerated by patients and have significantly fewer side effects compared to ribavirin and interferon-based regimens...

REVIEW

The lumen-apposing metal stent (LAMS) is one of the revolutionary devices recently developed for gastrointestinal endoscopy. This device has a saddle-shaped design and large lumen. It was originally designed for drainage of transmural pancreatic fluid collection and in the last few years it has been used extensively for that indication. More recently, other in- and off-label indications have been proposed. Several types of LAMS are available, with or without an electrocautery-enhanced delivery system. In the current review we discuss the state of the art with regard to LAMS and their indications, usage, and outcomes...

One of the most common malignant tumors in humans, colorectal cancer has been extensively studied during the past few decades. Staging colorectal cancer allows clinicians to obtain precise prognostic information and apply specific treatment procedures. Apart from remote metastases, the depth of tumor infiltration and lymph node involvement have traditionally been recognized as the most important factors predicting outcome. Variations in the molecular signature of colorectal cancer have also revealed differences in phenotypic aggressiveness and therapeutic response rates...
