Long-term follow-up after endoscopic submucosal dissection of colorectal lesions in a Spanish cohort.
CONCLUSIONS: in our study, the five year disease free survival rate was 81% and no patient required surgery during follow-up. Piecemeal and R1 resections had significantly higher recurrence rates, as well as LM involvement, although this was not statistically significant. PMID: 32054276 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Purpose of review As cancer treatments improve more patients than ever are living for longer with the side effects of these treatments. Radiation enteritis is a heterogenous condition with significant morbidity. The present review aims to provide a broad overview of the condition with particular attention to the diagnosis and management of the condition. Recent findings Radiation enteritis appears to be more prevalent than originally thought because of patient underreporting and a lack of clinician awareness. Patient-related and treatment-related risk factors have now been identified and should be modified where possi...
Purpose of review The aim of this review is to provide insight into the diagnosis and management of patients with refractory coeliac disease (RCD) and highlight recent advances in this field. Recent findings The diagnosis of RCD can be more accurately confirmed with flow cytometry in addition to immunohistochemistry. Dietary input and excretion of gluten immunogenic peptides can help rule out gluten contamination, and therefore, substantiate a diagnosis of RCD type I. Small bowel capsule endoscopy (SBCE) is important at diagnosis and follow-up in addition to duodenal histology. Apart from ruling out complications, it ...

Conclusion Fc-SEMSs are highly effective in the nonoperative treatment of type II perforations and their intraoperative insertion in patients with unsuccessful cannulation may facilitate surgery by eliminating the need for duodenum repair surgery.
ConclusionsThis meta-analysis demonstrates that EIGB is a safe device offering an effective weight loss that warrants further studies for its long-term weight loss outcomes. Severe adverse events are rare, and the rate of early removal is low.
