Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: The impact of early enteroscopy in the outcome of overt-obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB) is still not clear. Our aim is to evaluate the impact of early enteroscopy in overt-OGIB.METHODS: Pubmed/(MEDLINE), Web of Science and Scopus were systematically reviewed. Observational retrospective studies comparing early versus non-early enteroscopy in overt-OGIB were identified.

A rare cause of lower gastrointestinal bleeding: acquired hemophilia A
We present the case of a 71-year-old man, with medical history of hypertension, dyslipidemia and acute myocardial infarction in 2007, taking low dose of aspirin and bemiparing 3500 every 24h. He was admitted in the Urology Service with recurrent hematuria 14 days after radical prostatectomy, which ceased after continuous bladder irrigation.PMID:34058828 | DOI:10.17235/reed.2021.7974/2021 (Source: Revista Espanola de Enfermedades Digestivas)

Humans are accidental intermediary hosts where cystic lesions develop, primarily in the liver and lungs. It is usually asymptomatic, hence it is usually incidentally identified.

Capsule enteroscopy versus scintigraphy for the diagnosis of obscure gastrointestinal bleeding
This study aims to assess the performance of CE and scintigraphy for the diagnosis of OGIB.METHODS: Patients who underwent CE and scintigraphy for OGIB were selected and analyzed retrospectively. The hemorrhagic potential of CE findings was rated using Saurin's classification. The concordance between both diagnostic techniques for bleeding detection and localization was analyzed.RESULTS: Eighty-five patients (62% female), with a median age of 63 years, were included. Capsule enteroscopy identified 37 patients (43%) with high hemorrhagic potential (P2) lesions. Most scintigraphy exams were positive for gastrointestinal blee...

Rev Esp Enferm Dig. 2021 May 5. doi: 10.17235/reed.2021.7998/2021. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTSurgery has been considered the main treatment for submucosal tumors (SMTs); however, endoscopic resection is currently accepted for gastric SMTs smaller than 3cm. Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is considered the technique of choice and submucosal tunneling endoscopic resection shows successful results with low complication rate in the recent meta-analysis by Cao et al. The major limitation of these methods is the technical difficulty to be applied in certain anatomic locations.PMID:33947190 | DOI:10.17235/reed.2021.799...

Lenvatinib in severe hypoglycemia associated with hepatocelular carcinoma
We present the case of a 24-year-old man with multicentric hepatocellular carcinoma over HBV cirrhosis treated with Sorafenib and Tenofovir. He comes to our center for repeated episodes of symptomatic hypoglycemia that cannot be managed with standard measures. After ruling out different possibilities, the suspicion of hypoglycemia due to a non-islet cell tumor was finally confirmed. Given the impossibility of a curative treatment due to a reduced functional reserve, Sorafenib was changed to Lenvatinib, thereby improving glycemic control.PMID:33947193 | DOI:10.17235/reed.2021.8016/2021 (Source: Revista Espanola de Enfermedades Digestivas)
