Prevalence of Gastrointestinal Symptoms and Fecal Viral Shedding in Patients With Coronavirus Disease 2019
TLDR
It is suggested that patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection can present with gastrointestinal symptoms with possible fecal-oral route of transmission due to the presence of viral RNA in stool. Expand
Advanced imaging technologies increase detection of dysplasia and neoplasia in patients with Barrett's esophagus: a meta-analysis and systematic review.
TLDR
Based on a meta-analysis, advanced imaging techniques such as chromoendoscopy or virtual chromoendsoscopy significantly increase the diagnostic yield for identification of dysplasia or cancer in patients with Barrett's esophagus. Expand
Comprehensive study of cardiovascular morbidity in hospitalized inflammatory bowel disease patients.
TLDR
This study substantiates the previously reported associations of mesenteric ischemia and venous thrombotic disorders with IBD and suggests that young females with I BD might have an increased risk for dysrhythmias. Expand
Normal saline solution versus other viscous solutions for submucosal injection during endoscopic mucosal resection: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Use of VS during EMR leads to higher rates of en bloc resection and lower rates of residual lesions compared with NS, without any significant difference in adverse events. Expand
End-stage renal disease is associated with worse outcomes in hospitalized patients with peptic ulcer bleeding.
TLDR
ESRD is associated with a significant health care burden in hospitalized patients with PUB and contributes to a higher mortality rate, longer hospital stay, and increased need for surgery. Expand
Discordance Among Pathologists in the United States and Europe in Diagnosis of Low-Grade Dysplasia for Patients With Barrett's Esophagus.
TLDR
An analysis of criteria used in histopathologic diagnosis of LGD did not observe improvement in level of agreement among experienced pathologists, even after accounting for inflammation, and the level of inter-observer agreement increased with level of pathologist confidence. Expand
Prevalence and risk factors for colonic perforation during colonoscopy in hospitalized inflammatory bowel disease patients.
TLDR
There appears to be a higher risk of colonoscopy-associated perforation in IBD inpatients than non-IBD controls, and older age, female patients and endoscopic dilations appeared to be associated with an increased risk for perforations. Expand
Development and Validation of a Model to Determine Risk of Progression of Barrett's Esophagus to Neoplasia.
TLDR
A scoring system based on male sex, smoking, length of BE, and baseline low-grade dysplasia that identified patients with BE at low, intermediate, and high risk for HGD or EAC is developed. Expand
Complications of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease.
TLDR
Several aspects of Barrett's management remain controversial including the stage in the disease process which needs to be intervened, type of the intervention and surveillance of these lesions to prevent development of high grade dysplasia and oesophageal adenocarcinoma. Expand
