CONCLUSION: Microwave ablation afforded rapid and simple haemostasis for adults with recurrent anterior epistaxis in an out-patient setting. Microwave ablation had significant advantages compared to silver nitrate cautery when used to treat epistaxis in patients with convex lesions. PMID: 32066510 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Black patients are subject to documented disparities in the entire spectrum of chronic liver disease care, from screening to treatment and transplant organ access. Whether this racial inequity exists in access to endoscopy and/or transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) creation is not known. We analyzed rates of endoscopy and TIPS during admissions for acute variceal bleeding in a national cohort.
