BACKGROUND: Olfactory dysfunction is an increasingly recognised condition, associated with reduced quality of life and major health outcomes such as neurodegeneration and death. However, translational research in this field is limited by heterogeneity in methodological approach, including definitions of impairment, improvement and appropriate assessment techniques. Accordingly, effective treatments for smell loss are limited. In an effort to encourage high quality and comparable work in this field, among others, we propose the following ideas and recommendations...

BACKGROUND: Observational studies have consistently shown an increased risk of upper gastrointestinal bleeding in users of selective serotonin receptor inhibitors (SSRIs), probably explained by their inhibition of platelet aggregation. Therefore, treatment with SSRIs is often temporarily withheld in patients with peptic ulcer bleeding. However, abrupt discontinuation of SSRIs is associated with development of withdrawal symptoms in one-third of patients. Further data are needed to clarify whether treatment with SSRIs is associated with poor outcomes, which would support temporary discontinuation of treatment...

For pancreatic solid lesions, ESGE recommends performing endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided sampling as first-line procedure when a pathological diagnosis is required. Alternatively, percutaneous sampling may be considered in metastatic disease.Strong recommendation, moderate quality evidence.In the case of negative or inconclusive results and a high degree of suspicion of malignant disease, ESGE suggests re-evaluating the pathology slides, repeating EUS-guided sampling, or surgery.Weak recommendation, low quality evidence...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Stepwise radical endoscopic resection (SRER) has shown to be effective in eradicating Barrett's esophagus (BE) and its associated dysplasia. The aim of this study was to assess the long-term durability after successful SRER for early Barrett's neoplasia. METHODS: Patients who were treated with SRER for BE ≤5 cm with high-grade dysplasia (HGD) or early cancer (EC) and had reached complete eradication of intestinal metaplasia (CE-IM) and neoplasia (CE-neo) were included...

Primary small bowel tumors account for 1-6% of all Gastrointestinal (G.I.) tract malignancies. Among these pedunculated lipomas are unusual. We report a case of a 66-year-old male with a history of G.I. hemorrhage and acute anemia, negative upper and lower endoscopies and a pedunculated lipoma in distal ileum, revealed by CT enterography. The patient was successfully treated by open surgery. Patients with G.I. hemorrhage and negative upper and lower endoscopies need an accurate evaluation of small bowel. Multislice CT enterography or Magnetic Resonance enteroclysis/ enterography represent the fastest and more accurate tools to obtain an exhaustive evaluation of small bowel...

The serum pepsinogen (PG) assay findings are correlated with the status of Helicobacter pylori infection, but there are controversies on the link with upper gastrointestinal (UGI) endoscopic findings. The aim of this study was to determine the significance of a serum PG assay for correlating with endoscopic findings in H. pylori-seroprevalent adult population. Korean adults who visited for a health check-up were included consecutively. Subjects after gastrectomy or H. pylori eradication were excluded. After completing the serum PG assay and anti-H...

BACKGROUND: Streptococcus equi subsp equi (S. equi) is the cause of "equine strangles" which is a highly infectious upper respiratory disease. Detection of S. equi is influenced by site of specimen collection, method of sampling, and type of diagnostic test that is performed. We hypothesized i) that a loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) assay that targets the S. equi-specific eqbE gene would be more sensitive than a realtime PCR assay that targets the S. equi-specific seeI gene and ii) that LAMP of specimens obtained by guttural pouch lavage (GPL) would be more sensitive than LAMP of nasopharyngeal specimens to identify S...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This study aims to make the reader be aware of recent trends regarding the endoscopic management of upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) via review of the urologic literature over the past 5 years. Given the rare incidence of this disease, and the lack of level 1 evidence, systematic reviews and meta-analyses were also evaluated. Studies of importance are also considered and outlined in the annotated reference section. RECENT FINDINGS: The PubMed database was queried using the following medical subject headings (MeSH terms): "carcinoma, transitional cell," "ureter," "ureteral neoplasms," "kidney pelvis," "endoscopy," "laser therapy," "ureteroscopy," "urologic surgical procedures," and "ureteroscopes...

BACKGROUND: Positive peritoneal cytology is classified as M1 disease in gastric and pancreatic cancer. While peritoneal cytology is typically obtained by laparoscopic peritoneal lavage, this study sought to examine the feasibility and safety of performing this percutaneously, with monitored anesthesia care and in combination with other diagnostic procedures to condense and expedite the staging process. METHODS: Patients with gastric or pancreatic cancer scheduled for laparoscopy with peritoneal lavage were prospectively enrolled to undergo intraoperative percutaneous peritoneal lavage prior to laparoscopic peritoneal lavage...

REVIEW
Ikram Hussain, Tiing Leong Ang
Gastric cancer is the third most common cause of cancer-related death. Advanced stages of gastric cancers generally have grim prognosis. But, good prognosis can be achieved if such cancers are detected, diagnosed and resected at early stages. However, early gastric cancers and its precursors often produce only subtle mucosal changes and therefore quite commonly remain elusive at the conventional examination with white light endoscopy. Image-enhanced endoscopy makes mucosal lesions more conspicuous and can therefore potentially yield earlier and more accurate diagnoses...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic surveillance of Barrett's esophagus (BE) is probably not cost-effective. A sub-population with BE at increased risk of high-grade dysplasia (HGD) or esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) who could be targeted for cost-effective surveillance was sought. METHODS: The outcome for BE surveillance from 2003 to 2012 in a structured program was reviewed. Incidence rates and incidence rate ratios for developing HGD or EAC were calculated. Risk stratification identified individuals who could be considered for exclusion from surveillance...

Sliding hiatal hernias are common and affect approximately 10% to 80% of the general population. The condition typically presents with reflux-type symptoms and is diagnosed either with imaging or endoscopy. In this case, the hernia presented as G-induced abdominal pain. The patient was an F-18 pilot who experienced worsening epigastric abdominal pain proportionate to the amount of accelerative force experienced. The pain would occur at approximately 3 Gs and increase beyond that. The patient was asymptomatic at rest and denied any dysphagia or reflux symptoms...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL

Australian guidelines state "Following brief surgery or procedures with short acting anaesthetic drugs, the patient may be fit to drive after a normal night's sleep. After long surgery or procedures requiring longer lasting anaesthesia, it may not be safe to drive for 24 hours or more". The increasing use of the short-acting anaesthetic drug propofol as a solitary sedative medication for simple endoscopy procedures suggests a need to review this blanket policy. Thirty patients presenting for elective day surgery were recruited as volunteers for a pre-procedure driving simulation study and randomised to propofol or placebo arms...

N Viazis, J Anastasiou, D G Karamanolis
Obscure gastrointestinal bleeding is defined as bleeding of unknown origin that persists or recurs (i.e. recurrent or persistent iron deficiency anemia, fecal occult blood test positivity or visible bleeding) after a negative initial workout that necessarily includes gastroscopy and colonoscopy. In clinical practice, small bowel capsule endoscopy is recommended as a third stage examination in these patients, since it is a simple, safe, non-invasive and reliable test. To date there are three available small bowel capsule systems that have gained FDA approval and their diagnostic yield has shown to be superior to other diagnostic modalities for the investigation of the small bowel in patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding...

REVIEW
Harvey A Ziessman
The diagnostic imaging evaluation of patients with suspected esophagogastrointestinal transit disorders is changing. Anatomical methods, e.g., barium studies, endoscopy, manometry, radiopaque markers, have long been the techniques available and used for diagnosis. The one exception has been gastric emptying, where radionuclide scintigraphy has been the standard for decades. Esophageal transit scintigraphy is an old and reliable methodology but probably underutilized. The diagnostic use of small and large intestinal transit scintigraphy is increasing, in part, because of the limitations of the other methods but, most importantly, because it is truly physiologic, i...
