Introduction: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third and second most commonly diagnosed cancer worldwide in males and females, respectively. Despite prominent progress in diagnosis and treatment, the recurrence rates are still high. A tumour hypoxic environment leads to an increase in glycolytic metabolism. The crucial intermediate component of glycolysis, glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH), could play a significant role in cancer progression. An increased level of GAPDH has been described in oncogene-induced transformation and anti-apoptotic function...

Introduction: Progranulin is a novel growth factor that has several physiological and pathological roles such as cell growth, tumourigenesis, embryogenesis, wound healing, and inflammation. Aim: To compare the pre-treatment and post-treatment serum levels of the angiogenic factor vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), pro-inflammatory cytokine tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α), and progranulin in peptic ulcer (PU) patients with a healthy control group. Material and methods: Serum VEGF, TNF-α, and progranulin levels were studied with ELISA in 42 PU patients (antral ulcer (AU): 22, duodenal ulcer (DU): 20) and 15 healthy controls...

Introduction: Celiac disease (CD) is a chronic inflammatory intestinal disorder. Different immunological factors, including inflammatory cytokines, may play an important role in disease susceptibility.

Material and methods: In this case-control study blood samples were collected of 105 patients with CD and 106 healthy subjects randomly in 2016 and evaluated by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragments length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) method...

Over the last 30 years laparoscopic surgery of rectal cancer has been progressively gaining popularity due to expanding experience and the development of technical skills according to the surgeons' learning curves. The report constitutes a review of recently published articles concerning surgical techniques in colon cancer, with special emphasis on rectal cancer treatment. We tried to address the question of whether, in view of further development and broader use of laparoscopic surgery, there still is a place for open surgery in the treatment strategy of rectal cancer...

Introduction: In last three decades we have observed development in minimally invasive techniques in the treatment of walled-off pancreatic necrosis (WOPN). Endoscopic treatment of the consequences of acute necrotising pancreatitis is a accepted and common minimally invasive method. Aim: Evaluation of the efficiency and safety of the innovative endoscopic treatment method (single transluminal gateway transcystic multiple drainage - SGTMD) in patients with extensive walled-off pancreatic necrosis...

Introduction: The method of a bipolar high-frequency welding (HFEW) of soft living tissues of animals and humans has been used in various areas of surgery. However, it has not been utilized in endoscopic gastrointestinal procedures yet. HFEW has strong potential to be used in gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures due to the competitive cost of generator devices and due to its proven ability to coagulate vessels of wide diameter as compared to standard electrocautery devices. Aim: To investigate the effectiveness of the endoscopic haemostasis using HFEW generator device - 300 PATONMED - in a porcine model of arterial gastrointestinal bleeding...

Aim: The aim of the study was to evaluate the clinical, endoscopic, histopathological, laboratory, and imaging findings of patients with familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) presenting with dyspeptic symptoms. Material and methods: Endoscopy was performed in 28 patients with FMF undergoing colchicine therapy, who presented to our hospital between 2012 and 2014 with abdominal pain, diarrhoea, and dyspeptic complaints. Upper gastrointestinal system endoscopy was performed in all patients; 16 of these underwent colonoscopy...

Introduction: Gastrointestinal endoscopy is an invasive and diagnostic procedure that causes the patients considerable pain, discomfort, and anxiety. Therefore, various types of sedation and analgesia techniques have been used during the procedure. Aim: To compare the effects and side-effects of sedation with propofol versus midazolam plus pethidine in patients undergoing endoscopy. Material and methods: This is a randomised controlled double-blind clinical trial study conducted on 272 patients undergoing diagnostic and treatment endoscopy and colonoscopy in Imam Khomeini Hospital in Ahvaz between 2017 and 2018...

Introduction: Acute pancreatitis (AP) is one of the urgent diseases of gastroenterology. Due to the growth of the elderly population, the frequency of the disease in the elderly population is also increasing. Aim: To evaluate the contributing factors of mortality in geriatric patients (age ≥ 65 years) and non-geriatric (age < 65 years) patients. Material and methods: We retrospectively analyzed data of consecutive patients with AP, in the Adana Numune Education and Research Hospital between March 2013 and September 2015...

Introduction: Colorectal cancer is the second most frequently diagnosed malignancy and one of the leading causes of cancer-related death in Poland. Many reports of different types of cancer have indicated that blood count parameters may serve as a source of prognostic or predictive information. Aim: To assess the association between these parameters and clinical outcome in patients with advanced colorectal cancer. Material and methods: We retrospectively analysed a database of 295 patients with advanced colorectal cancer treated with first-line palliative chemotherapy at our institution from January 2008 to December 2012...

Introduction: The detection of adenomas is the basic goal for colorectal cancer screening programs; therefore, every possibility to improve the adenoma detection rate is valuable. Aim: To answer the question of whether narrow-band imaging (NBI) can enhance detection quality in screening for colonoscopy. Material and methods: A group of 533 patients (202 men: 331 women; average age: 56.1 years) included in a colorectal cancer screening program were randomised into two groups (NBI n = 266 and white light (WL) n = 267)...
