Small-Bowel Lesions in Patients Taking Direct Oral Anticoagulants Detected Using Capsule Endoscopy.

Conclusion: Many patients taking DOACs had small-bowel lesions; however, most lesions were relatively mild. Observing small-bowel lesions over longer periods may be necessary in patients taking DOACs. This trial is registered with UMIN000011527. PMID: 32849868 [PubMed]

Endosc Int Open 2020; 08: E1144-E1155 DOI: 10.1055/a-1201-3089 Background and study aims Gastric neoplasms are one of the leading types of cancer in the world and early detection is essential to improve prognosis. Endoscopy is the gold-standard diagnostic procedure and allows adequate treatment in selected cases. Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) has been reported to safely address most early gastric cancers (EGCs), with high curability rates. However, data on prognostic factors related to ESDs of EGCs are conflicting. Therefore, we aimed to systematically review the available literature and to perform a meta-...

AbstractObjectivesTo assess the hypothesis that an adjunctive therapy with methylprednisolone and unfractionated heparin (UFH) or with methylprednisolone and low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) are more effective in reducing any-cause mortality in critically-ill ventilated patients with pneumonia from SARS-CoV-2 infection compared to LMWH alone.Trial designThe study is designed as a multi-centre, interventional, parallel group, superiority, randomized, investigator sponsored, three arms study. Patients, who satisfy all inclusion criteria and no exclusion criteria, will be randomly assigned to one of the three treatment gro...

Abstract This case presents an unusually late complication of oesophagectomy 20-years post-surgery, with upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Further investigation revealed a gastric conduit ulcer eroding into the lower lobe of the right lung, forming a fistula with a basal branch of the right pulmonary artery. Upon successful embolisation, the HydroCoil® was visible on endoscopy. This case highlights the need for lifetime proton pump inhibitor cover post-oesophagectomy and demonstrates that when approaching uncommon presentations of common problems, careful consideration to treatment technique is essential. ...

Although upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) management has improved substantially during the past decades, there is still much controversy regarding the optimal timing to perform endoscopy. Recent guidelines suggest performing early endoscopy within 24 hours of non-variceal UGIB (NVUGIB) presentation, although its impact in different risk patients remains unclear.

Endoscopy DOI: 10.1055/a-1186-5360 Background Upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) is a leading cause of morbidity and is associated with a 2 % – 17 % mortality rate in the UK and USA. Bleeding peptic ulcers account for 50 % of UGIB cases. Endoscopic intervention in a timely manner can improve outcomes. Hemostatic spray is an endoscopic hemostatic powder for GI bleeding. This multicenter registry was created to collect data prospectively on the immediate endoscopic hemostasis of GI bleeding in patients with peptic ulcer disease when hemostatic spray is applied as endoscopic monotherapy, dual thera...

Conclusions PuraStat is feasible, safe, and effective in controlling different types of gastrointestinal hemorrhage after failure of conventional hemostatic methods. Its application also does not hinder continuing endotherapy. [...] © Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart · New YorkArticle in Thieme eJournals: Table of contents  |  Abstract  |  Full text

We report the case of a 6-year-old boy with EGE. He was diagnosed as having immediate-type food allergies (egg, milk and wheat) by oral food challenges at 1 year of age. OIT for each food was carried out, and the amounts of the offending foods were able to be gradually increased without causing any immediate-type allergy symptoms. However, the total IgE and specific IgE values were remarkably increased at the age of 4 years and 4 months. He first developed oral mucosa symptoms and vomiting at 4 years and 10 months of age, and they gradually worsened. Stopping eggs and milk alleviated the symptoms. Nevertheless, he still oc...
