BACKGROUND & AIMS: Liver disease is traditionally categorized as alcoholic and non-alcoholic. We studied various risk factors predictive of advanced non-viral liver disease in general population and analyzed the interaction between these factors and alcohol consumption. METHODS: Persons without underlying liver disease who participated in the Health2000 or FINRISK studies 1992-2012 comprised a cohort of 41260 individuals. Pattern of alcohol consumption and metabolic, life-style-related and anthropometric parameters were analyzed with Cox regression analysis using severe liver disease hospitalization, cancer or death as end-point...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Transparent hood-assisted colonoscopy (TAC) has been reported to improve the cecal insertion rate and adenoma detection rate (ADR). An endoscopic cap (Endocuff) with 2 rows of soft wings was recently developed to improve ADR, by flattening the mucosal folds during withdrawal. This randomized prospective control study aimed to compare ADR between Endocuff-assisted colonoscopy (EAC) and TAC. METHODS: A total of 513 patients undergoing colon adenoma screening were included...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: We aimed to investigate the effect of L-carnitine on biochemical factors including ammonia, bilirubin, albumin, alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), blood urea nitrogen (BUN), and creatinine (Cr) in patients with hepatic encephalopathy (HE). METHODS: A systematic search was carried out in Web of Science, PubMed, Scopus and Cochrane library databases to find articles related to the effect of L-carnitine supplementation in patients with HE, up to 7 February 2019...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Diagnostic performance of ascitic fluid total protein (AFTP) concentration remained unsettled. Our aim was to determine diagnostic value of AFTP in differential diagnosis of causes of ascites. METHODS: 704 consecutive patients with new-onset ascites were prospectively enrolled in this study.

BACKGROUND: Tissue adhesive injection is the first-line treatment for gastric varices re-bleeding. Available studies are focused on antibiotic usage in emergency endoscopy, while the use of antibiotics in selective endoscopic tissue adhesive treatment remains controversial. METHODS: This is a randomized, controlled study conducted in a tertiary referral hospital.

BACKGROUND & AIM: Abdominal obesity, measured using waist circumference (WC), is associated with the colorectal neoplasia (CRN) risk. We examined whether WC is associated with the CRN risk even in normal-weight individuals. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was performed on asymptomatic normal-weight (body mass index 18.5-23 kg/m2 ) individuals who underwent colonoscopy as health checkups. RESULTS: Of 63,057 examinees, 30,498 were men (mean age, 41...

Concern has been raised regarding the use of simethicone, a de-foaming agent, during endoscopic procedures. Following reports of simethicone residue in endoscope channels despite high level disinfection, an endoscope manufacturer recommended that it not be used due to concerns of biofilm formation and a possible increased the risk of microorganism transmission. However, a detailed mucosal assessment is essential in performing high-standard endoscopic procedures. This is impaired by bubbles within the gastrointestinal lumen...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Gastric intestinal-type adenocarcinoma with anastomosing glands (IAAG) is characterized by architectural abnormality with frequent anastomosing glands and low-grade cytological atypia. Clinicopathologic features and long-term outcomes of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for IAAG remain unclear. METHODS: This study included 2828 patients who underwent ESD for early gastric cancers (EGCs) (78 IAAGs (2.6%) and 2893 well-differentiated (WD) or moderately differentiated (MD) EGCs (97...

INTRODUCTION: The prognostic value of transient elastography (TE) in cirrhotic patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) treated by percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is currently unknown. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We included patients with histologically proven cirrhosis and with a first diagnosis of HCC inside Milan criteria treated by percutaneous RFA, and with TE available the year before treatment with 10 shots and IQR/med < 30%. Association between variables and clinical events was assessed by the Kaplan-Meier method with the Log-Rank test and using Cox univariate and multivariate analyses...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Bleeding is an inevitable and often severe complication after endoscopic sphincterotomy (EST). We aimed to investigate the factors associated with post-EST bleeding in patients treated with anticoagulants. METHODS: The data of patients who underwent EST at 15 hospitals between July 2015 and June 2017 were extracted. We investigated the incidence of post-EST bleeding and risk factors for bleeding in patients treated with anticoagulants. RESULTS: One hundred forty-nine patients undergoing EST who met the inclusion criteria were included in this study...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: A number of studies were able to show a reduction of hypoxemia episodes during procedural sedation through the use of capnography (CA). The present study investigates the number of episodes of hypoxemia during percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) placement with propofol sedation comparing standard monitoring (SM) vs. SM with additional CA surveillance. METHODS: In this single-center randomized controlled trial 150 patients were prospectively randomized 1:1 in either the SM or CA group after stratification for ASA class, PEG method (push- or pull method), presence of head & neck tumor and tracheostomy...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Hiatal hernia (HH) has been found in a large number of people, but there has been no unified way to diagnose it. The aim of this study was to compare the diagnostic efficiency of X-ray, endoscopy and high-resolution manometry (HRM) in the diagnosis of HH using surgical diagnosis of HH as the gold standard. METHODS: Two biomedical databases (PubMed and EMBASE) were systematically searched through January 26, 2019. The pooled sensitivity, specificity and area under the SROC curve (AUC) were calculated, and the AUC statistical significance was compared by Tukey's multiple comparisons test...

OBJECTIVE: To systematically analyze the effect of long-term therapy with PPIs on the risk of gastric cancer. METHOD: PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) and China biomedical literature database (CBM) were searched for studies before February 2019. We evaluated the quality of the included articles through the Newcastle-Ottawa Scale and gathered relevant data to calculate the pooled OR through Stata14.0. RESULT: Seven relevant articles conformed to the inclusion criteria; 943070 patients were included...
