INTRODUCTION/OBJECTIVE: Piecemeal endoscopic mucosal resection is a safe and effective procedure for the management of large non-pedunculated colorectal polyps. Its major limitation is the possibility of residual or recurrent adenoma and the consequent need for scheduled surveillance colonoscopies, with the implied burden for the patient and health systems. We aimed to evaluate if the Size/Morphology/Site/Access (SMSA) and Sydney EMR Recurrence Tool (SERT) scores are effective in predicting resi...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Few studies have reported the treatment outcomes of transarterial radioembolization (TARE) using yttrium-90 (Y) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We established and validated a new risk prediction model for patients with HCC treated with TARE. METHODS: Between 2010 and 2017, 113 and 35 patients with intrahepatic HCC treated with TARE were selected for the training and validation cohorts, respectively. The modified response evaluation criteria in solid tumors (mRECIST) were use...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Little is known about that the relationship between hepatic fat content (HFC) and metabolic syndrome (MetS). We aimed to determine whether HFC correlated with MetS in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). METHODS: HFC was measured by MRI-determined proton density fat fraction (MRI-PDFF) for 131 suspected NAFLD subjects. Patients with NAFLD defined as MRI-PDFF >/=5% were stratified into two groups based on whether they were above or below the median MRI-PDFF ...
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: The data regarding the microbial spectrum in necrotizing pancreatitis and its impact on mortality is limited. Therefore, in this study, we aimed to investigate the agents identified in cultures and their impact on in-hospital and 1-year all-cause mortality. METHODS: Patients with necrotizing pancreatitis were retrospectively included in the study. Based on culture results, patients were classified as either negative culture or positive culture necrotizing acute pancreatiti...

Monopolar hemostatic forceps with soft coagulation (MHFSC) have been compared with hemoclips, heater probe, and argon plasma coagulation (APC) for the treatment of peptic ulcer bleeding. In this systematic review and meta-analysis, we compared MHFSC with other modalities in the treatment of peptic ulcer bleeding. We reviewed MEDLINE, Embase, Scopus, Cochrane, Web of Science, and Scopus from inception to 7 January 2019 to identify studies comparing MHFSC with other modalities for peptic ulcer ble...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to investigate the clinical efficacy and safety of ketotifen for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea (IBS-D). METHODS: A total of 108 enrolled IBS-D patients were randomly divided into a ketotifen group (n = 55) and a control (placebo) group (n = 53). The patients in the ketotifen group received ketotifen tablets (1 mg, oral) two times daily; patients in the control group received oral placebo for 8 weeks. Before and after 8 weeks of treatm...
In the 'treat-to-target' era of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) management, small molecule drugs (SMDs) represent a promising alternative to biomolecular drugs. Moreover, increasing failure rates of anti-tumor necrosis factor alpha agents have contributed to the development of new molecules with different mechanisms of action and bioavailability. This review focuses on the positioning of new, orally targeted therapies in the treatment algorithm of both Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative coliti...
INTRODUCTION: Excessive consumption of alcohol has steadily risen to become the third leading cause of preventable death in the US. One such consequence of heavy alcohol use that has been under considerable investigation of late is alcoholic hepatitis. Although many risk factors for developing alcoholic hepatitis have been documented, our aim in this study was to examine the potential association between sarcopenia and the severity, mortality, 30 days readmission rate, complication, infections a...
