Gut microbiota, metabolome and immune signatures in patients with uncomplicated diverticular disease
Conclusions Patients with colonic diverticular disease show depletion of microbiota members with anti-inflammatory activity associated with mucosal macrophage infiltration. Metabolome profiles were linked to inflammatory pathways and gut neuromotor dysfunction and showed the ability to discriminate diverticular subgroups and controls. These data pave the way for further large-scale studies specifically aimed at identifying microbiota signatures with a potential diagnostic value in patients with diverticular disease.
In conclusion, our findings widen the genotypic spectrum of MLH1 mutations responsible for LS. This study increases the phenotypic spectrum of LS which will certainly help the clinicians in diagnosing LS in multigeneration families. This study also puts emphasis on the importance of genetic counselling for the benefit of asymptomatic carriers of MMR gene variants who are at higher risk of LS. PMID: 32076465 [PubMed - in process]
ConclusionUsing the obstruction protocol in patients with bowel obstruction reduced emergency surgery and postoperative morbidity and mortality in this pilot study. This protocol seems to be a viable and efficient alternative to emergency surgery.
Colonoscopy with polypectomy is frequently performed in pediatric patients based on symptoms, with the majority of polyps identified being benign juvenile pedunculated polyps with a vascular stalk. This is in distinction to adults where polypectomy is often performed as part of a colon cancer screening and prevention strategy and a higher fraction of polyps are sessile and or dysplastic. In adults, polypectomy techniques emphasize a need for deeper resection to ensure complete resection of adenomas or potential carcinoma in situ. Adenomatous polyps can occur in the pediatric age group and may be associated with an underlyi...
The results of medical procedures can often be difficult to translate into comprehensible and engaging information for patients. This randomized controlled trial evaluated the satisfaction and perceived value of a technology, called HealthVoyager, which creates a personalized virtual reality (VR) experience of a patient's endoscopy or colonoscopy findings in comparison to the standard practice (ie, reviewing printed reports). The platform allows gastroenterologists to create a customized VR patient report to help translate medical knowledge and procedural information to the patient. Forty-one patients (17 HealthVoyager [te...
ConclusionsThe awareness of CRC risk and iFOBT screening are important strategies for early detection of CRC. We showed a CRC detection rate of 0.3 % among those who volunteered to have the iFOBT screening.
ConclusionThe role of cancer-related technologies presence or utilization for colorectal cancer outcomes and potential racial disparities warrants further research.

Conclusion: PLAs can be a complication of sigmoid diverticulitis and as a result of occult dental disease as well. The clinical presentation of Fusobacterium infection is diverse and can be fatal if diagnosis is delayed. Therefore, early diagnosis and treatment are the keys to preventing serious complications.
