Background: In 2013, a systematic review and Delphi consensus reported that specific probiotics can benefit adult patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other gastrointestinal (GI) problems. Aim: To update the consensus with new evidence. Methods: A systematic review identified randomised, placebo-controlled trials published between January 2012 and June 2017. Evidence was graded, previously developed statements were reassessed by an 8-expert panel, and agreement was reached via Delphi...

Objectives The global prevalence of IBS is difficult to ascertain, particularly in light of the heterogeneity of published epidemiological studies. The aim was to conduct a literature review, by experts from around the world, of community-based studies on IBS prevalence. Design Searches were conducted using predetermined search terms and eligibility criteria, including papers in all languages. Pooled prevalence rates were calculated by combining separate population survey prevalence estimates to...

Many medical professional societies have formulated guidelines to treat hypertension, but there existed differences with respect to diagnosis, blood pressure (BP) targets, pharmacotherapy of hypertension, and grades of evidence. A MEDLINE search for hypertension guidelines was performed to compare Indian guidelines for hypertension (IGH) with these guidelines. A majority of the guidelines had consensus on the cutoff value (140/90 mmHg, recorded twice) to diagnose hypertension. The Joint National...

Aim To assess the ability of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) to exclude prognostically significant coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD). Materials and methods A cohort of patients who underwent both X-ray angiography and CMR since 2006 was reviewed retrospectively. Records of those with European criteria for LVSD (left ventricular ejection fraction [LVEF] Results One hundred and sixteen patients were included. The mean age was 64 years and ...

Objective To determine rates of faecal biomarker results capable of suggesting potentially treatable causes of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptomatology in a population of patients with symptoms of IBS who meet Rome III criteria for that condition. Design Descriptive, retrospective study in which faecal biomarker results (dichotomised into ‘normal’ and ‘abnormal’ values) were related to data from patient-completed questionnaire data identifying demographics, Rome III criteria for IBS and IBS...

Introduction Perforation is one of the most serious adverse events associated with colonoscopy and may be managed conservatively or surgically. We have previously reported outcomes following colonoscopic perforations in the English National Health Service Bowel Cancer Screening Programme, showing that those perforations managed conservatively with bowel rest, intravenous fluids and antibiotics did not develop post perforation morbidity. 1 We therefore aimed to examine which factors could be used...

Summary Background The extent of episodic diarrhoea in the community is relatively unknown. Aim To ascertain the prevalence, symptoms and management behaviours associated with self-reported diarrhoea across 11 countries. Methods Community screening surveys were conducted using quota sampling of respondents to identify a nationally representative sample of individuals suffering from ‘episodic’ diarrhoea (occurring once a month or more often). Second-phase in-depth surveys provided data on epidemi...

Introduction Colonoscopic perforation remains one of the most serious adverse events associated with colonoscopy. Colonoscopies in the English NHSBCSP are performed at 61 Screening Centres. There is a robust system for capturing the details of adverse events; patients are contacted at 24 h and 30 days post procedure, Centres complete an adverse event form, reviewed by regional Quality Assurance leads, and event details are entered onto a national web based database, the Bowel Cancer Screening Sy...
