The guideline was created under the leadership of the DGVS and with participation of neighbouring scientific societies and is intended as a practical aid for the diagnosis and therapy of autoimmune liver diseases. The aim is to represent the current state of science, promote the recognition of the disease and improve the treatment of patients.

INTRODUCTION: The use of human albumin for the management of cirrhosis has increased. Recommendations have been published for therapeutic paracentesis (TP), spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP), and type 1 hepatorenal syndrome (HRS). The goal of this survey was to assess the prescription practices of French hepatogastroenterologists. METHODS: All hepatogastroenterologists were contacted. The questionnaire evaluated (1) the use of albumin in validated indications and (2) the prescription of albumin for nonvalidated clinical situations...

Background and research question: The hospital sector is currently characterized by a high economic pressure. As well the DRG system as the investment financing by the federal states imply financial limitations. Hospitals react to this situation by trying to reduce costs and to increase case volume. It is questionable whether and to what extent patient care and the working conditions of the physicians are affected by these circumstances. Especially, gastroenterological patients were considered to be insufficiently covered by the DRG system in the past...

BACKGROUND: Before the 2012 revision of the EASL guidelines for the management of hepatitis B virus infection, we conducted a survey to determine how French nonacademic hepatogastroenterologists defined inactive hepatitis B virus carriers and immunotolerant patients. METHODS: We asked 680 hepatogastroenterologists to complete a simple survey consisting of 11 multiple-choice questions. RESULTS: The participation rate was 32%. HBeAg positivity was not identified as a key criterion for the diagnosis of immunotolerance by 61...

Gallstone disease is more common in the elderly. In this short review, we summarize guideline-based recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of biliary diseases in elderly patients. Warning episodes of biliary colic represent a general indication for cholecystectomy to avoid stone-related complications. Elderly patients with mild and moderate acute cholecystitis should undergo urgent cholecystectomy. After endoscopic retrograde cholangiography and stone extraction as well as mild acute biliary pancreatitis, cholecystectomy should be performed during the same hospital admission...

BACKGROUND: Data on the current management of inflammatory bowel disease are scarce. METHODS: This was a nationwide survey among 65 private gastroenterologists treating patients with inflammatory bowel disease in France in 2012. RESULTS: A total of 375 inflammatory bowel disease patients were analysed: 48% had ulcerative colitis. One third of inflammatory bowel disease patients had a history of hospitalisation, and 40% of Crohn's disease patients had prior surgery...

AIM: An evaluation was performed of the 1-year outcome of open haemorrhoidectomy (Milligan and Morgan alone or with posterior mucosal anoplasty [the Leopold Bellan procedure]). METHOD: A prospective, multicentre, observational study included all patients having a planned haemorrhoidectomy from January 2007 to June 2008. Data were collected before surgery, and at 3 months and 1 year after surgery. Patients assessed their anal symptoms and quality of life (SF-36)...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Combined pH and impedance monitoring can detect all types of reflux episodes within the esophageal lumen and the pharynx. We performed a multicenter study to establish normal values of pharyngeal and esophageal pH-impedance monitoring in individuals on and off therapy and to determine the interobserver reproducibility of this technique. METHODS: We collected ambulatory 24-hour pH-impedance recordings from 46 healthy subjects by using a bifurcated probe that allowed for detection of reflux events in the distal and proximal esophagus and pharynx...

BACKGROUND: Ciclosporin and infliximab are potential rescue treatments to avoid colectomy in patients with acute severe ulcerative colitis refractory to intravenous corticosteroids. We compared the efficacy and safety of these drugs for this indication. METHODS: In this parallel, open-label, randomised controlled trial, patients were aged at least 18 years, had an acute severe flare of ulcerative colitis defined by a Lichtiger score greater than 10 points, and had been given an unsuccessful course of high-dose intravenous steroids...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: 5-Aminosalicylates (ASA) are widely used in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Nephrotoxicity has been described in some IBD patients treated with 5-ASA. Whether physicians managing these patients are monitoring renal function in daily practice is unknown. The aims of this paper were to investigate how private gastroenterologists monitor renal function and manage renal failure in IBD patients treated with oral 5-ASA therapy. METHODS: This was a web-based cross sectional national survey which was conducted among private gastroenterologists...

Indications for ileocolonoscopy were defined in 2002 by the Groupe Francophone d'Hépatologie Gastroentérologie et Nutrition. These recommendations were updated with new data and technical innovations appearing over the last decade. Ileocolonoscopy is primarily indicated for digestive bleeding or anemia and for suspected inflammatory bowel disease. It is now indicated in inflammatory bowel disease for control of mucosal healing after medical treatment and relapse after surgical resection. Iterative ileocolonoscopy is primarily indicated for genetic polyposis and well defined for familial adenomatous polyposis...

AIM: Internal sphincterotomy is the standard surgical treatment for chronic anal fissure, but is frequently complicated by anal incontinence. Fissurectomy is proposed as an alternative technique to avoid sphincter injury. We describe 1-year outcomes of fissurectomy. METHOD: This was a prospective, multicentre, observational study. All patients with planned surgery for chronic anal fissure were included and had fissurectomy. Data were collected before surgery, at healing, and 1 year after fissurectomy...

BACKGROUND: A 6-month abstinence from alcohol is usually required before patients with severe alcoholic hepatitis are considered for liver transplantation. Patients whose hepatitis is not responding to medical therapy have a 6-month survival rate of approximately 30%. Since most alcoholic hepatitis deaths occur within 2 months, early liver transplantation is attractive but controversial. METHODS: We selected patients from seven centers for early liver transplantation...

This guideline updates a prior concensus recommendation of the German Society for Digestive and Metabolic Diseases (DGVS) from 1996. It was developed by an interdisciplinary cooperation with representatives of the German Society for Microbiology, the Society for Pediatric Gastro-enterology and Nutrition (GPGE) and the German Society for Rheumatology. The guideline is methodologically based on recommendations of the Association of the Scientific Medical Societies in Germany (AWMF) for providing a systematic evidence-based consensus guideline of S3 level and has also implemented grading criteria according to GRADE (Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation)...

The journal Gastroentérologie clinique et biologique succeded to Archives des maladies de l'appareil digestif published since 1907 and is one of the world's oldest journals in gastroenterology. Gastroentérologie Clinique et Biologique was created as the discipline was emerging, benefiting from new techniques such as nasogastric intubation, coprologic examinations, the first images from gastrointestinal radiology, as well as the enormous progress made in gastrointestinal surgery. The journal was founded by Albert Mathieu, a remarkable chef d'école at Paris's Saint-Antoine Hospital...
