Risk Factors for Post-ERCP Pancreatitis: A Prospective Multicenter Study
This study emphasizes the role of patient factors and technical factors (number of PD injections, minor papilla sphincterotomy, and operator experience) as the determining high-risk predictors for post-ERCP pancreatitis. Expand
Endoscopist-directed administration of propofol: a worldwide safety experience.
EDP thus far has a lower mortality rate than that in published data on endoscopist-delivered benzodiazepines and opioids and a comparable rate to that in Published data on general anesthesia by anesthesiologists. Expand
Endoscopic sclerotherapy as compared with endoscopic ligation for bleeding esophageal varices.
Patients with cirrhosis who have bleeding esophageal varices have fewer treatment-related complications and better survival rates when they are treated by esphageal ligation than when they were treated by sclerotherapy. Expand
The Stretta procedure for the treatment of GERD: 6 and 12 month follow-up of the U.S. open label trial.
The Stretta procedure significantly improves GERD symptoms, quality of life, and esophageal acid exposure and eliminates the need for antisecretory medication in the majority of patients at 12 months. Expand
Collagenous colitis: histopathology and clinical course.
Although variable in clinical presentation, treatment-free remissions are common in collagenous colitis, and initial histology, except possibly for Paneth cell metaplasia, did not reliably predict severity or course of disease. Expand
Double blind, placebo controlled trial of the remission inducing and steroid sparing properties of an ICAM-1 antisense oligodeoxynucleotide, alicaforsen (ISIS 2302), in active steroid dependent
Although the primary outcomes failed to demonstrate efficacy, pharmacodynamic modelling suggests that alicaforsen (ISIS 2302) may be an effective therapy for steroid dependent Crohn's disease. Expand
Resource utilization before and during infliximab therapy in patients with inflammatory bowel disease
GI-related resource utilization was significantly lower and attenuation of mucosal damage severity was observed during infliximab treatment compared with the pre-treatment period, which may make it a cost-effective option. Expand
Endoscopic versus operative gastrostomy: final results of a prospective randomized trial.
There is no difference between OG (using local anesthesia) and PEG with regard to morbidity, mortality, or tube function, and the endoscopic technique does appear to have economic advantage. Expand
Endoscopic intervention for biliary leaks after laparoscopic cholecystectomy: a multicenter review.
Endoscopic sphincterotomy, stent placement, or spharkerotomy with stent are effective in healing biliary leaks after laparoscopic cholecystectomy despite prolonged treatment for the leak. Expand

Transpancreatic duct pre-cut is a safe and effective method for gaining quick access to the bile duct in patients in whom cannulation is difficult. Expand
