Background and Aims: Epidemiological studies of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) frequently use the International Classification of Disease (ICD) codes to identify patients. The validity of such ICD codes in a Swedish setting is unknown. Here, we aimed to validate the administrative code for NAFLD in Sweden. Methods: In total, 150 patients with an ICD-10 code for NAFLD (K76.0) from the Karolinska University Hospital between 1 January 2015 and 3 November 2021 were randomly selected. Patients were classified as true or false positives for NAFLD by medical chart review and the positive predictive value (PPV) for the ICD-10 code corresponding to NAFLD was calculated...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of overweight and smoking has changed over time. However, whether the changes in the risk factors are reflected in the prevalence of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is unknown. The aims of this study were to assess the changes in prevalence of GORD and the associated risk factors over time in a general population. METHODS: This was a population-based study using repeated surveys of the Tromsø Study: Tromsø2 (1979-1980, n  = 14,279), Tromsø6 (2007-2008, n  = 11,460) and Tromsø7 (2015-2016, n  = 20,664)...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Gastric reactive hyperplasia (RH) is a common benign lesion of the gastric mucosa that can be resolved by conservative treatment without endoscopic intervention. Some RH lesions are indistinguishable from low-grade intraepithelial neoplasia (LGIN) lesions of gastric mucosa under endoscopy. The aim of this study was to investigate the morphological features of RH lesions under magnifying endoscopy combined with narrow-band imaging (ME-NBI). METHODS: A retrospective study of 653 patients with superficial suspicious lesions of gastric mucosa was performed...
