Obesity is a growing pandemic across the world. Dietary restrictions and behavior modifications alone have a limited benefit. Bariatric surgery, despite being the current gold standard, has limited acceptance by patients due to cost and associated morbidity. In our review, we have discussed nine original studies describing endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG). A total of 172 subjects successfully underwent ESG. Of 65 subjects with follow up data, 95.4% (62/65) had intact gastric sleeve confirmed via esophagogastroduodenoscopy or oral contrast study at the end of study specific follow up interval (the longest being 6 months)...

Capsule endoscopy (CE) has become a first-line noninvasive tool for visualisation of the small bowel (SB) and is being increasingly used for investigation of the colon. The European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) guidelines have specified requirements for the clinical applications of CE. However, there are no standardized recommendations yet for CE training courses in Europe. The following suggestions in this curriculum are based on the experience of European CE training courses directors. It is suggested that 12 hours be dedicated for either a small bowel capsule endoscopy (SBCE) or a colon capsule endoscopy (CCE) course with 4 hours for an introductory CCE course delivered in conjunction with SBCE courses...

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...

Endoscopic surveillance after colorectal polypectomy These guidelines for endoscopic surveillance after colorectal polypectomy are based on the recommendations published by European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) in 2013. A precondition for the guidelines is that patients have undergone a high-quality colonoscopy, including complete removal and histopathological evaluation of all detected neoplastic lesions. Current research has made it possible to stratify patients into a low-risk and a high-risk group in terms of metachronous cancer...

The European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and United European Gastroenterology present a short list of key performance measures for lower gastrointestinal endoscopy. We recommend that endoscopy services across Europe adopt the following seven key performance measures for lower gastrointestinal endoscopy for measurement and evaluation in daily practice at a center and endoscopist level: 1 rate of adequate bowel preparation (minimum standard 90%); 2 cecal intubation rate (minimum standard 90%); 3 adenoma detection rate (minimum standard 25%); 4 appropriate polypectomy technique (minimum standard 80%); 5 complication rate (minimum standard not set); 6 patient experience (minimum standard not set); 7 appropriate post-polypectomy surveillance recommendations (minimum standard not set)...

Wai Keat Wong, Subhaschandra Shetty
Parotidectomy remains the mainstay of treatment for both benign and malignant lesions of the parotid gland. There exists a wide range of possible surgical options in parotidectomy in terms of extent of parotid tissue removed. There is increasing need for uniformity of terminology resulting from growing interest in modifications of the conventional parotidectomy. It is, therefore, of paramount importance for a standardized classification system in describing extent of parotidectomy. Recently, the European Salivary Gland Society (ESGS) proposed a novel classification system for parotidectomy...

Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) is a sphingolipid in plasma that plays a critical role in cardiovascular and immune systems. Endothelial surface glycocalyx (ESG) decorating the inner wall of blood vessels is a regulator of multiple vascular functions. To test the hypothesis that S1P can reduce tumor cell adhesion to microvessel walls by protecting the ESG, we quantified the ESG and MDA-MB-231 tumor cell adhesion in the presence and absence of 1μM S1P, and in the presence of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) inhibitor in post-capillary venules of rat mesentery...

Elucidating biological function of proteins is a fundamental problem in molecular biology and bioinformatics. Conventionally, protein function is annotated based on homology using sequence similarity search tools such as BLAST and FASTA. These methods perform well when obvious homologs exist for a query sequence; however, they will not provide any functional information otherwise. As a result, the functions of many genes in newly sequenced genomes are left unknown, which await functional interpretation. Here, we introduce two webservers for function prediction methods, which effectively use distantly related sequences to improve function annotation coverage and accuracy: Protein Function Prediction (PFP) and Extended Similarity Group (ESG)...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG) is a technique for managing mild to moderately obese patients. We aimed to evaluate the long-term outcomes, reproducibility, and predictors of weight response in a large multicenter cohort. METHODS: Patients who underwent ESG between January 2013 and December 2015 in three centers were retrospectively analyzed. All procedures were performed using the Apollo OverStitch device (Apollo Endosurgery, Austin, TX). We performed per protocol (PP) and intention-to-treat (ITT) analyses, where patients lost to follow-up were considered failures...

The emerging endoscopic technologies are proved to be effective treatments for obesity in selected patients and to offer the potential advantages of reduced invasiveness, reversibility and repeatability. From the view of operation principle, endoscopic technologies can be classified as restrictive procedure, malabsorption procedure and endoscopic revision of gastric bypass. Restrictive procedures include intragastric balloon, aspiration therapy, endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG) and transoral gastroplasty...

BACKGROUND: Radio-cephalic arteriovenous fistula (RCAVF) is the gold standard vascular access for end-stage chronic kidney disease patients. Exercises after arteriovenous fistula (AVF) creation improve maturation. No articles are published regarding neuromuscular electrostimulation (NMES) in AVF maturation. OBJECTIVES: To assess the usefulness of a NMES programme on RCAVF maturation process. METHODS: An 8-week single-centre prospective study...

The balanced maintenance and differentiation of local stem cells is required for Homeostatic renewal of tissues. In the Drosophila midgut, the transcription factor Escargot (Esg) maintains undifferentiated states in intestinal stem cells, whereas the transcription factors Scute (Sc) and Prospero (Pros) promote enteroendocrine cell specification. However, the mechanism through which Esg and Sc/Pros coordinately regulate stem cell differentiation is unknown. Here, by combining chromatin immunoprecipitation analysis with genetic studies, we show that both Esg and Sc bind to a common promoter region of pros...

1 ESGE/EASL recommend that, as the primary diagnostic modality for PSC, magnetic resonance cholangiography (MRC) should be preferred over endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP).Moderate quality evidence, strong recommendation. 2 ESGE/EASL suggest that ERCP can be considered if MRC plus liver biopsy is equivocal or contraindicated in patients with persisting clinical suspicion of PSC. The risks of ERCP have to be weighed against the potential benefit with regard to surveillance and treatment recommendations...

OBJECTIVE: Presently, there is no simple method at initial presentation for identifying a patient's likelihood of progressing to surgery and a favorable outcome. The Epilepsy Surgery Grading Scale (ESGS) is a three-tier empirically derived mathematical scale with five categories: magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), electroencephalography (EEG), concordance (between MRI and EEG), semiology, and IQ designed to stratify patients with drug-resistant focal epilepsy based on their likelihood of proceeding to resective epilepsy surgery and achieving seizure freedom...
