Preparation is important before a colonoscopy. Eating particular foods and stopping certain medications can help doctors to get as clear a view of the colon as possible. In this article, we look at the steps that people should take before having a colonoscopy, along with what to expect during the procedure.
Conclusions: This study showed that half of all first diagnostic endoscopies in our unit had neither macroscopic nor histological abnormalities. There was discrepancy between macroscopic abnormalities and histological findings in OGD. Prospective studies are needed to develop guidelines in appropriately predicting abnormality and selecting patients for endoscopy.
Conclusion The early phases of drug distribution are unique and complicated by nonsteady-state concentrations, and our study revealed that Ce-based wake-up time prediction is more difficult under these circumstances.
Endoscopists who encounter an interval colorectal cancer (I-CRC) may be concerned about the implications because I-CRCs may represent a lapse in colonoscopy quality and a missed opportunity for prevention. To determine the I-CRC rate per colonoscopy examination and to examine the effect of colonoscopy volume and adenoma detection rate (ADR) on the number of I-CRCs attributable to an endoscopist.
Authors: Fischbach W, Elsome R, Amlani B Abstract INTRODUCTION: Colonoscopy provides less protection from colorectal cancer in the right colon than the left. Areas Covered: This review examines patient outcomes and colonoscopy success rates to identify factors that limit the protective effect of colonoscopy in the right colon. The MEDLINE and Embase databases were searched for literature from 2000 onwards, on the long-term outcomes and differences in screening practice between the right and left colon. In total, 12 systematic reviews (including nine meta-analyses) and 44 primary data records were included. Differen...
Authors: Okayama M, Kanemitsu Y, Oguri T, Asano T, Fukuda S, Ohkubo H, Takemura M, Maeno K, Ito Y, Niimi A Abstract A 36-year old man was referred to our hospital due to isolated chronic cough that was refractory to anti-asthma medications, including inhaled corticosteroids/long-acting β2 agonists. Chest X-ray showed diffuse nodular and enhanced vascular shadows with Kerley lines in both lungs. A blood analysis showed elevated serum CEA and CA19-9 levels. A transbronchial biopsy revealed well to moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma, the origin of which was immunohistochemically suspected to be the gastroin...

Conclusions: This pilot study supports the efficacy and safety of FMT administration for CDI in the setting of a community-based university hospital. Following FMTP implementation, primary (86%) and overall (94%) nonsurgical cure rates were similar to those reported in other studies. The potential role of opioids as a modulator of CDI warrants further clinical investigation.
