Improving the Endoscopy Patient ’s Understanding of Recovery
The Division of Gastroenterology (GI) has expanded the type of outpatient procedures performed at New York Presbyterian. As evidenced by poor patient satisfactions scores in the discharge domain of the OAS-CAHPS, we identified an opportunity to improve and specialize procedure discharge instructions. Previous discharge instructions were formatted in a free text, handwritten style, resulting in a lack of clarity, details, and comprehension. Procedure specific discharge instructions can increase patients ’ comprehension of post procedure information, therefore increasing patient satisfaction.

ConclusionHistopathologic examination of LSG specimens may not be routinely needed and can be performed on selected patients. While we recommend routine preoperative UGIE in all LSG-treated patients, we suggest that histopathologic assessment of the LSG specimens should be mandatory when UGIE biopsies demonstrate HP infection and/or premalignant lesions, in all patients older than 42 years, and in cases of intraoperative detection of incidental tumours or suspicious lesions.
ConclusionsWe found a high frequency ofH. pylori infection in SLE patients. The severity of SLE and reception of gastroprotective therapy do not seem to be related toH. pylori infection. Immunosuppressive therapy may not be protective againstH. pylori infection in SLE patients.Key Points•In patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), the frequency of Helicobacter pylori infection was 39% and gastric erosions were frequent.•Disease activity, chronic damage, gastroprotective drugs, and immunosuppressive therapy may not affect the prevalence of H. pylori infection in SLE patients.
AbstractPurposePulmonary vein (PV) isolation (PVI) by point-by-point radiofrequency application (PPRF) results in longer procedures than that achieved by single-shot ablation techniques. In addition, it is associated with significant risk of oesophageal injury. The POWER-FAST pilot study evaluated the feasibility and safety of PVI by high-power short-duration (HPSD) PPRF.MethodsHPSD PPRF around the PVs was done in 48 consecutive patients with atrial fibrillation. Fifty watts was delivered until a predefined lesion index value was reached (LSI ≥ 5 or Abl-I ≥ 350) and 60 W during 7–10 s in the first 18 and last 3...

Conclusion The association of routine video anoscopy during colonoscopy improved diagnosis of neoplastic anal lesions, allowed correct classification of the degree of hemorrhoidal disease, helped to confirm the bleeding site and detected other anal pathologies. The main findings were hemorrhoidal diseases, fissures and perianal fistulas. The study suggests that VA should be used in all colonoscopies.

Conclusions In a meta-analysis of randomized trials comparing EUS-BD to conventional biliary drainage modalities, no difference in technical or clinical success was observed. Importantly, EUS-BD was associated with decreased risks of stent/catheter dysfunction when compared to both PTBD and ERCP, and decreased post-procedure pancreatitis when compared to ERCP, suggesting the potential role for EUS-BD as an alternative first-line therapy in distal malignant biliary obstruction.

Discussion This is the first trial in the United Kingdom (UK) to investigate the effects of WAS in a screening setting. If the trial shows WAS either reduces pain or increases ADR, this may result in a practice change to implement WAS in screening and non-screening endoscopic practice directly impacting on 256,000 people a year who will undergo BSSP FSIG by 2020.Trial funding came from National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) supported by the NIHR Clinical Research Network. The trial is actively recruiting. ID: 35866 ISRCTN: 81466870 [...] © Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgar...
