ABSTRACT Background & Aims Observational studies of predominantly white populations have found new-onset diabetes to be associated with increased risk of pancreatic cancer. We sought to determine whether this relationship applies to other races or ethnicities and to identify metabolic profiles associated with increased risk of pancreatic cancer. Methods We conducted a population-based cohort study of Asian, black, Hispanic and white patients from Kaiser Permanente Southern California from 2006 t...

Abstract Background & Aims Guidelines recommend colonoscopy evaluation within 24 hours of presentation or admission in patients with high-risk or severe acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding (LGIB). Meta-analyses of the timing of colonoscopy have relied primarily on observational studies that had major potential for bias. We performed a systematic review of randomized trials to determine optimal timing of colonoscopy for patients hospitalized with acute LGIB. Methods We searched publication data...

Abstract Background & Aims Little is known about long-term outcomes of acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients with cirrhosis. Outcomes can vary with stage of AKI, chronic kidney disease (CKD), and trajectory of renal function. Methods We collected data from the Department of Veterans Affairs and identified 6917 patients with cirrhosis who developed AKI during hospitalization at any of its 127 hospitals, from 2004 through 2014. We used latent class analysis of serial creatinine measurements during...

Abstract Background & Aims Colorectal cancer (CRC) is major cause of cancer-related mortality in the United States. Screening, however, is suboptimal and there are disparities in outcomes. After health policy changes and national efforts to increase rates of screening and address inequities, we aimed to examine progress towards eliminating racial and ethnic disparities in CRC screening. Methods We conducted a repeated cross-sectional analysis of average-risk adults (age 50–75 years) included in ...

Abstract Background & Aims Esophageal motor disorders (EMD) and pathologic reflux are often identified in obese individuals, but it is not clear how obesity contributes to these symptoms. We examined the relationships among symptom burden, EMD, acid exposure time (AET), symptom association probability, and body mass index (BMI). Methods We performed a retrospective study of 1089 consecutive patients who underwent high-resolution manometry, of which 426 patients also underwent reflux monitoring o...

Abstract Background & Aims There is no validated questionnaire to assess disease knowledge and self-management in patients with liver cirrhosis. We developed and validated a cirrhosis knowledge questionnaire (CKQ). Methods We created a preliminary CKQ comprising 10 questions relevant to self-management of cirrhosis, based on publications and clinical experiences. The CKQ was given to a pilot sample of 17 patients with decompensated cirrhosis to assess its face validity. In consultation with expe...

ABSTRACT Background & Aims The region of the esophagus 15–17 cm below the incisors, called the sub-upper esophageal sphincter (sub-UES), has not been characterized in adults with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) but appears different during endoscopy. We investigated how the sub-UES differs from the remaining esophagus in patients with EoE and aimed to determine whether these differences be used to distinguish patients with EoE from those with lichen planus. Methods We performed a prospective stud...

Abstract Background & Aims Regurgitative gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) refractive to medical treatment is common and caused by mechanical failure of the anti-reflux barrier. We compared the effects of magnetic sphincter augmentation (MSA) with those of proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) in a randomized trial. Methods Patients with moderate to severe regurgitation (assessed by the foregut symptom questionnaire) despite once-daily PPI therapy (n=152) were randomly assigned to groups given twic...
