3d ago
Abstract Background and Aims Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) has been identified as an aerosol-generating procedure (AGP) during the COVID-19 pandemic. The risk of AGP and benefits of utilizing protective measures have never been fully studied. Methods A randomized control, open label study in patients scheduled for diagnostic EGD between September and December 2021 was conducted. Patients were randomly assigned to either head box group or without head box group (control group). Particles were measured with 6-size particle counters at the nurse anesthetist and endoscopist position. Primary co ..read more

5d ago
Abstract Fibrosis of the liver is a degenerative alteration that occurs in the majority of chronic liver disorders. Further progression can lead to cirrhosis, liver failure, and hepatocellular carcinoma, which can seriously affect the health and lives of patients. The field of liver fibrosis research has flourished in the last 20 years, with approximately 9,000 articles retrieved from the Web of Science Core Collection database alone. In order to identify future research hotspots and potential paths in a thorough and scientifically reliable manner, it is important to organize and visualize the ..read more

Efficacy of Oral Sulfate Tablets for Bowel Preparation and Adenoma Detection Rate
Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology
by Ji Hyun Song, Jung Ho Bae, Jeong Yoon Yim
6d ago
Abstract Background/aims The adenoma detection rate (ADR), which is closely related to bowel preparation, is the most important factor for colonoscopy quality assessment. New oral sulfate tablets (OSTs) have been developed to improve bowel preparation compliance. This study evaluated the efficacy of OSTs in terms of the ADR and bowel preparation status. Methods Medical records of subjects under the age of 65 who underwent colonoscopy from Mar 2019 to Feb 2021 were retrospectively reviewed. Polyethylene glycol with ascorbic acid (PEG-A) was used as a bowel preparation for the first half of the ..read more

Abstract Background and Aim SmartExam is a novel computational method compatible with FibroScan that uses a software called SmartDepth and continuous controlled attenuation parameter measurements to evaluate liver fibrosis and steatosis. This retrospective study compared the diagnostic accuracy of conventional and SmartExam-equipped FibroScans for liver stiffness measurement (LSM). Methods The liver stiffness and the associated controlled attenuation parameters of 167 patients were measured using conventional and SmartExam-Equipped FibroScan as well as reference methods like magnetic resonance ..read more

Post colonoscopy cancer rate (PCCRC‐3Y) at a tertiary referral hospital in Australia – A data linkage analysis
Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology

1w ago
Abstract Introduction Colorectal cancer (CRC) diagnosed following a cancer-negative colonoscopy is termed as post-colonoscopy CRC (PCCRC). The World Endoscopy Organization has recently standardized definition of PCCRC-3Y (CRC developing within 3 years of a cancer-negative colonoscopy). In the present study, we sought to assess PCCRC-3Y rate, perform root-cause analyses and identify factors associated with development of PCCRC at a tertiary referral hospital in Australia. Methods All patients undergoing colonoscopy from 2011 to 2018 were matched to a population-based cancer register. PCCRC-3Y r ..read more

Abstract Background and Aim The impact of the presence of multiple Lugol-unstained lesions (LULs) in the esophagus on the risk of having severe dysplasia and above lesions (SDA) among asymptomatic individuals is unknown. Methods We collected demographic factors, behavioral variables and features of LULs from 1073 participants who were biopsied at baseline endoscopic screening in a population-based screening trial, and these individuals were followed over a median time of 7 years. Outcome events were defined as SDA identified at screening, at reexamination, or during follow-up. “Multiple LULs ..read more

Application of artificial intelligence to digital‐rapid on‐site cytopathology evaluation during endoscopic ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration: a proof of concept study
Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology
by Rong Lin, Li‐Ping Sheng, Chao‐Qun Han, Xian‐Wen Guo, Rong‐Gan Wei, Xin Ling, Zhen Ding
2w ago
Abstract Background During endoscopic ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA), cytopathology with rapid on-site evaluation (ROSE) can improve diagnostic yield and accuracy. However, ROSE is unavailable in most Asian and European institutions because of the shortage of cytopathologists. Therefore, developing computer-assisted diagnostic tools to replace manual ROSE is crucial. Herein, we reported the validation of an artificial intelligence (AI)-based model (ROSE-AI model) to substitute manual ROSE during EUS-FNA. Methods A total of 467 digitized images from Diff-Quik (D&F)-stain ..read more

Abstract Background and Aims Physical activity has been proposed as a potential factor influencing capsule endoscopy (CE) gastric transit time (GTT). However, there is no reported factual evidence confirming this association. We aimed to prospectively assess the effect of physical activity in the first hour of CE in the occurrence of prolonged GTT. Methods Prospective study including consecutive patients undergoing CE. For each patient, a step-counter was attached to the CE register. The number of steps during the first hour of the procedure was registered. The main outcome was prolonged GTT ..read more

Abstract Objective IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis (IgG4-SC) is recognized as a benign steroid-responsive disease; however, little is known about the risk of development of cancer in patients with IgG4-SC and about how to counter this risk. Design We conducted a retrospective review of the data of 924 patients with IgG4-SC selected from a Japanese nationwide survey. The incidence, type of malignancy, and risk of malignancy in these patients were examined. Then, the standardized incidence ratio (SIR) of cancer in patients with IgG4-SC was calculated. Results Relapse was recognized in 19.7 ..read more
