BACKGROUND There is a lack of consensus regarding the risk of postoperative hemorrhage in patients on antithrombotic therapy who undergo endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD).We examined postoperative bleeding rates and risk factors for postoperative hemorrhage from post-ESD gastric ulcers in patients on antithrombotic therapy. METHODS The subjects of(More)
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can cause epithelial cell damage in the stomach, intestine, and colon. NSAIDs are reported to induce autophagy and apoptosis in intestinal epithelial cells; however, their role in cell damage is poorly understood. To examine the role of autophagy in cell damage, we used autophagy-related gene Atg5-conditional(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM The evidence for main pancreatic duct intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (MPD-IPMN) malignancy is based predominantly on investigation of resected cases, and the natural history is still unclear. The aim of the present study is to investigate the natural history of MPD-IPMN and examine potential predictors of disease progression in(More)
OBJECTIVES Although drug treatment is the usual first-line therapy for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), not all patients receive satisfactory relief from drug therapy, alone. We developed an endoscopic fundoplication technique using endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD); the technique is referred to as ESD for GERD (ESD-G). This study investigated(More)
UNLABELLED In contrast to accumulated knowledge about gastroduodenal injury associated with nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as indomethacin, small intestinal mucosal injuries have been noticed only recently, and the precise mechanism remains to be elucidated. To clarify the mechanism, we performed 2-DE on IEC-6 rat normal intestinal cells(More)
dilated papillary orifice, and direct cholangioscopy was performed. An electrohydraulic lithotripsy probe progressively fractured the stone until the surgical clip nidus was visualized. The clip was freed and removed by using forceps. After stone retrieval, a 7F, 7-cm plastic biliary stent was placed, and the patient was treated with antibiotics for 5 days.(More)
We prospectively evaluated the effects of celecoxib (CEL) on the gastrointestinal (GI) tract of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients with endoscopically identified GI mucosal injury after therapeutic switching from the long-term use of traditional nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Upper GI endoscopy was performed on RA patients who had been(More)
OBJECTIVES:The objective of this study was to determine whether constipation-predominant irritable bowel syndrome (IBS-C) is associated with changes in intestinal barrier and secretory function.METHODS:A total of 19 IBS-C patients and 18 healthy volunteers (all females) underwent saccharide excretion assay (0.1 g 13C mannitol and 1 g lactulose),(More)
Liver abscesses secondary to Salmonella species are rarely described in the general population. We herein describe a case of a liver abscess caused by CTX-M-55-type extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Salmonella enteritidis, which has not been reported in the literature. A 54-year-old male was admitted due to a high fever and was clinically(More)
This study assessed time-course changes of the small intestinal lesions during long-term treatment with diclofenac sodium plus omeprazole and the effects of irsogladine on such lesions. Thirty two healthy volunteers were treated with diclofenac sodium (75 mg/day) plus omeprazole (10 mg/day) for 6 weeks, with irsogladine (4 mg/day) added from weeks 6 to 10(More)
