Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) is currently an integral investigation of many gastrointestinal disorders. It has been shown to have a higher efficacy than conventional computed tomography in detection and characterization of small lesions especially in the pancreas. Much effort has been put to further improve the sensitivity, specificity and overall(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The role of electroacupuncture (EA) in reducing sedative and analgesic requirements during EUS is uncertain. The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of EA in reducing procedure-related pain and discomfort during EUS. METHODS This was a double-blinded randomized controlled study conducted between March 2014 and July 2016.(More)
S39 ENDOSCOPIC ULTRASOUND / VOLUME 6 / SUPPLEMENT 1 / AUGUST 2017 VID-THER-01 Endoscopic ultrasound-guided hepaticogastrostomy: Problems and solutions; some unsuccessful and then the right one! Nilay Mehta, Ajay Chocksey Vedanta Hospital, Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India A 36-year-old male presented with obstructive jaundice and acute pancreatitis. Both imaging(More)
OBJECTIVE Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) contribute to tumour immunosuppressive microenvironment and immune-checkpoint blockade resistance. Emerging evidence highlights the pivotal functions of cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) in tumour immunity. Here we elucidated the role of tumour-intrinsic CDK20, or cell cycle-related kinase (CCRK) on(More)
BACKGROUND Ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) is commonly encountered after liver surgery. This study evaluated the hepatoprotective effects of topically applied adipose-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (ADMSCs) on hepatic IRI in a rat model. METHODS ADMSCs from transgenic green fluorescent protein Sprague-Dawley rats were topically applied to the liver(More)
Background and study aim There are no data comparing endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided gallbladder drainage (EGBD) with percutaneous cholecystostomy as a treatment for patients with acute cholecystitis. Patients and methods This was a 1 : 1 matched cohort study of all patients who were unfit for cholecystectomy and underwent EGBD or percutaneous(More)
The outcome after curative resection for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains unsatisfactory due to the high recurrence rate after surgery. In patients with hepatitis B virus (HBV)-related HCC, which is the majority of patients with HCC in Asia, a high viral load is a strong risk factor for HCC recurrence. It is logical to believe that antiviral therapy(More)
S4 ENDOSCOPIC ULTRASOUND / VOLUME 6 / SUPPLEMENT 1 / AUGUST 2017 OR-HPB-01 Endoscopic ultrasonography-guided needle-based confocal laser endomicroscopy has improved accuracy compared to the current standard of care for differentiating mucinous from nonmucinous pancreatic cystic lesions Somashekar Krishna, Darwin Conwell, Samer Eldika, Sean McCarthy, Jon(More)
A 64-year-old man presented with abdominal collection after robot-assisted distal pancreatectomy. We inserted two guide wires under endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guidance followed by tract dilatation using cystotome (Cysto Gastro Set, Endo-Flex) and an 8-mm CRE biliary balloon dilator (Boston Scientific). Two 10-French biliary double pigtail catheters(More)
