INTRODUCTION: The periprocedural management of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) using a direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC) undergoing elective gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopic procedure remains uncertain. We investigated the safety of a standardized periprocedural DOAC management strategy. METHODS: The Periprocedural Anticoagulation Use for Surgery Evaluation cohort study enrolled adult patients receiving a DOAC (apixaban, rivaroxaban, or dabigatran) for AF scheduled for an elective procedure or surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Delivered in person, yoga is effective in managing irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms. The evidence for efficacy, feasibility, and safety of virtually delivered yoga for patients with IBS is unknown. METHODS: Adults diagnosed with IBS were randomized to either Hatha yoga intervention of 8 weekly online classes delivered virtually or an advice-only control group and assessed at baseline and postintervention. We used an unadjusted ANOVA to determine differences between and within groups on the primary outcome (decrease of ≥50 points in IBS Symptom Severity Scale [IBS-SSS]) and secondary outcomes (quality of life, anxiety and depression, fatigue, somatic symptoms, perceived stress, COVID-19 stress, and self-compassion)...

INTRODUCTION: The triglyceride (TG) threshold for diagnosis of chylous ascites in patients with portal hypertension remains uncertain. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of lipoprotein electrophoresis was conducted in 286 consecutive ascites samples. RESULTS: Ascitic TG ≥ 81 mg/dL is 95.4% sensitive and 94.6% specific for chylous ascites diagnosed by the presence of significant chylomicron population. DISCUSSION: The cutoff for chylous ascites diagnosis should be TG ≥ 81 mg/dL...

INTRODUCTION: Patients with Crohn's disease (CD) experience a variety of symptoms that significantly affect their lives. In this study, we (i) ascertain the most prevalent and impactful symptoms in CD and (ii) identify modifying factors that are associated with a higher disease burden in CD. METHODS: We conducted semistructured interviews with adult participants with CD to determine what issues have the greatest impact on their lives. Next, we conducted a large cross-sectional study of individuals with CD to determine the prevalence and relative importance of those symptoms and themes and to identify the demographic features that are associated with a higher disease burden...

INTRODUCTION: It is uncertain whether patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) and delayed symptomatic response to therapy have as robust and durable a response as earlier responders to therapy. We compared clinical outcomes of early and delayed responders to vedolizumab and adalimumab for patients with moderate-severe UC. METHODS: This was a post hoc analysis of the VARSITY study. Patients with early partial Mayo score (PMS) remission (PMS ≤1 at week 4/6 of therapy) were compared with those with delayed PMS remission (PMS ≤1 at week 14 and not week 4/6)...

INTRODUCTION: There are limited data on the familial risk of distal eosinophilic gastrointestinal diseases (EGIDs) in patients with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). We analyzed the risk of eosinophilic gastritis/gastroenteritis (EG/EGE) and eosinophilic colitis (EC) as forms of distal EGIDs using International Disease Classification-9/10 codes in subjects with EoE and their relatives. METHODS: The Utah Population Database is a resource that links genealogy information and medical records in Utah...

INTRODUCTION: We studied longitudinal trends in mortality, outpatient, and inpatient care for cirrhosis in a national cohort in the first 2 years of the coronavirus disease-2019 pandemic. We evaluated trends in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) surveillance and factors associated with completion. METHODS: Within the national cirrhosis cohort in the Veterans Administration from 2020 to 2021, we captured mortality, outpatient primary care provider, gastroenterology/hepatology (GI/HEP) visits, and hospitalizations...

INTRODUCTION: Previous studies have shown that ultrasonography has high specificity (80%-100%) but low sensitivity (50%-70%) in diagnosing fatty liver; sensitivity is especially low for mild steatosis. In this study, we aimed to reappraise the diagnostic performance of B-mode ultrasonography (B-USG) for fatty liver disease. METHODS: We performed a retrospective, multinational, multicenter, cross-sectional, observational study (6 referral centers from 3 nations)...

INTRODUCTION: We evaluated trends in Medicare reimbursement for common gastrointestinal (GI) services from 2007 to 2022. METHODS: Top GI procedures and office/inpatient visits were identified. The Physician Fee Schedule Look-Up Tool from Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services was queried to extract reimbursement data. Reimbursement trends were analyzed, accounting for inflation. RESULTS: GI procedures exhibited an average decrease in unadjusted and adjusted reimbursement of 7...

Abdominal ultrasound, with or without alpha-fetoprotein, is the recommended strategy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) surveillance but misses over one-third of HCC at an early stage. Emerging imaging modalities, including computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, have early data showing high sensitivity for early-stage HCC, but potential issues such as radiologic capacity, patient acceptance, cost-effectiveness, and need for validation in Western non-hepatitis B virus populations still need to be evaluated...

INTRODUCTION: We estimated the incidence and prevalence of benzodiazepine and Z-drug (separately and jointly as BZD) use in the inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) population compared with matched controls without IBD and examined the association of mood/anxiety disorders (M/ADs) with the use of BZD from 1997 to 2017. METHODS: Using administrative data from Manitoba, Canada, we identified 5,741 persons with incident IBD who were matched in a 1:5 ratio to controls on sex, birth year, and region...
