During his scientific career, largely from 1910-1970, the Danish cnidarian specialist P.L. Kramp authored 94 scientific papers, and more than 30 other kinds of publications, such as reports and popular articles. Kramp was affiliated with the marine department of the Zoological Museum of the University of Copenhagen (now: The Natural History Museum of Denmark, NHMD), an institution intensely involved at the time in expeditions, in the assembling and maintenance of collections, and in the revision of a wide range of animal groups...

BACKGROUND:  Serrated polyps are important colorectal cancer precursors that are variably detected during colonoscopy. We measured serrated polyp detection rate (SPDR) in a large, multicenter, cross-sectional study of colonoscopy quality to identify drivers of SPDR variation. METHODS:  Colonoscopy and pathology reports were collected for a 2-year period (10/2013-9/2015) from four sites across the United States. Data from reports, including size, location, and histology of polyps, were abstracted using a validated natural language processing algorithm...

AIM: Heparin bridging therapy (HBT) reportedly increases the risk of post-procedural bleeding, and the safety of HBT during endoscopic interventions remains unclear. We evaluated the effects of peri-procedural HBT in patients taking anticoagulants who underwent colonic endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR). METHODS: Patients who underwent colonic EMR while taking a single anticoagulant agent were enrolled in this study. All patients underwent short-term cessation of anticoagulants either without HBT (non-HBT group, prospectively enrolled) or with HBT (HBT group, retrospectively enrolled)...

Background/Aims: Several previous studies suggest that eradication of Helicobacter pylori ( H. pylori ) leads to the disappearance of gastric hyperplastic polyps. However, little is known about the effect of H. pylori status and eradication on the recurrence of gastric polyps after endoscopic removal. Here, we investigated the recurrence of gastric polyps according to the final H. pylori status in patients who underwent endoscopic removal of gastric hyperplastic polyps. Methods: Between January 2011 and December 2016, patients who underwent endoscopic removal of gastric hyperplastic polyps and were followed-up for more than two months were enrolled...

Introduction With increasingly limited operative resources and patient desires for minimally invasive procedures, there is a trend toward local endoscopic procedures being performed in the outpatient clinic setting. However, there remain limited data supporting a technique to adequately anesthetize the lateral nasal wall and provide patient comfort during these procedures. The objective of this study is to assess the efficacy of a novel lateral nasal wall block for use in office-based endoscopic sinus surgery...

Background Aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease (AERD), also known as Samter's triad or aspirin (ASA)-intolerant asthma, affects 7% of asthmatics and has a higher prevalence in those with chronic rhinosinusitis and concomitant nasal polyposis. ASA desensitization with daily ASA therapy is a uniquely beneficial treatment for this disease entity and has been shown to have a significant impact on symptom scores, polyp disease, and need for systemic corticosteroids. However, no long-term studies have demonstrated whether or not ASA therapy remains safe and beneficial for these patients beyond 5-10 years...

An inflammatory fibroid polyp (IFP) is a solitary rare benign neoplasm of the gastrointestinal tract, frequently located in the gastric antrum. IFPs account for about 0.1% of all gastric polyps. We report a case of a giant gastric inflammatory polyp of 2.5 cm × 7 cm that determines a gastric outlet obstruction called "ball valve syndrome" mimicking a gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) and a gastric lymphoma, with an intestinal obstruction of high origin. Therefore, due to acute presentation we have decided to submit the patient to a subtotal gastrectomy...

Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) is a subtype of neovascular age-related macular degeneration characterised by an abnormal branching vascular network with aneurysmal polypoidal choroidal vascular lesions. PCV is more prevalent in Asian populations than in Caucasians, which may explain its underdiagnosis in Western countries. Evidence regarding the efficacy of different anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) agents on PCV is scarce, with most of these studies being conducted in Asian treatment-naïve patients...

The SETD2-related overgrowth syndrome is also called "Luscan-Lumish syndrome" (OMIM 616831) with the clinical characteristics of intellectual disability, speech delay, macrocephaly, facial dysmorphism, and autism spectrum disorders. We report on two novel patients a 4.5-year-old boy and a 23-year-old female adolescent with a speech and language developmental delay, autism spectrum disorder and macrocephaly, who were both diagnosed with SETD2-related overgrowth syndrome due to de novo frameshift mutations in the SETD2 gene...

ᅟ: Obesity is a global epidemic and will soon become the number one priority in healthcare management. Bariatric surgery causes a significant improvement in obesity and its related complications. Pre-operative esophago-gastro-duodenoscopy (EGD) is done by several bariatric surgical teams across the world but is still not mandatory. AIM: To study the percentage of symptomatic and asymptomatic pathological EGD findings in obese patients undergoing bariatric surgery and to analyze whether these findings influence the eventual choice of bariatric surgery...

Inorganic polyphosphate (polyP) is a significant regulatory and metabolic compound in yeast cells. We compared polyP content and localization, polyphosphatase activities, and transcriptional profile of polyP-related genes in industrially important methylotrophic yeasts, Hansenula polymorpha and Pichia pastoris. The increased need for phosphate, the decrease of long-chain polyP level, the accumulation of short-chain polyP, and enhanced endopolyphosphatase activity in the crude membrane fraction were observed in methanol-grown cells compared with glucose-grown cells of both species...

Blooms of the moon jellyfish Aurelia coerulea frequently occur in coastal waters. The increased availability of substrates for the settlement and proliferation of polyps due to the expansion of artificial structures in coastal areas has been proposed as a possible contributing factor in jellyfish blooms. This paper investigates whether a marine artificial lake (Fenghuang Lake) provides additional substrates for A. coerulea polyps and contributes to jellyfish blooms. High densities of A. coerulea ephyrae were discovered in this lake, with a mean density of 41 individuals/m3 and a maximum measured density of 128 individuals/m3 ...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Previous studies have described variable effects of fellow involvement on the adenoma detection rate (ADR), but few have stratified this effect by level of training. We aimed to evaluate the "fellow effect" on multiple procedural metrics including a newly defined adenoma management efficiency index, which may have a role in documenting colonoscopy proficiency for trainees. We also describe the impact of level of training on moderate sedation use. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of 2024 patients (mean age 60...

BACKGROUND: Global warming has triggered an increase in the prevalence and severity of coral disease, yet little is known about coral/pathogen interactions in the early stages of infection. The point of entry of the pathogen and the route that they take once inside the polyp is currently unknown, as is the coral's capacity to respond to infection. To address these questions, we developed a novel method that combines stable isotope labelling and microfluidics with transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and nanoscale secondary ion mass spectrometry (NanoSIMS), to monitor the infection process between Pocillopora damicornis and Vibrio coralliilyticus under elevated temperature...

Background Blood eosinophil and basophil levels have recently been considered for the purpose of endotyping chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP). Histologically, eosinophilic-type CRSwNPs have been associated with high recurrence rates after treatment. Objective The present study was the first to compare blood eosinophil and basophil counts in eosinophilic-type CRSwNP patients before and after endoscopic sinus surgery. Methods The study concerned 79 consecutive patients with histologically confirmed eosinophilic-type CRSwNP treated with endoscopic sinus surgery...
