- We sought to derive a risk score, DORM65, of known variables to predict the likelihood of a positive EUS in patients with idiopathic acute pancreatitis (IAP).
- A reliable assessment of bowel preparation is important to ensure high-quality colonoscopy. Current bowel preparation scoring systems are limited by interobserver variability. This study aimed to demonstrate objective assessment of bowel preparation adequacy using an artificial intelligence (AI)/convolutional neural network (CNN) algorithm developed from colonoscopy videos.
- Despite quality measures in upper endoscopy (EGD) for Barrett’s esophagus (BE), considerable variability remains in practice among gastroenterologists. This randomized controlled trial evaluated the role of structured intensive training on the quality of EGD in BE.
- The abrupt outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease 2019 and its rapid spread over many healthcare systems throughout the world has led to a shortage in personal protective equipment (PPE), which cannot be solved by reducing their use or by increasing production. It is thus necessary to promote PPE rational use, highlighting possible differences in terms of efficacy and promoting an effective technique to reuse them.
- There is a well-known discrepancy between East and West classifications of colorectal neoplasm, especially “intramucosal carcinoma,” categorized as subgroup 4.4 in the Vienna classification, usually recognized as high-grade dysplasia in the United States and as carcinoma in situ in Japan. Focusing on management, in the current National Comprehensive Cancer Network algorithm, high-grade dysplasia, carcinoma in situ, and intramucosal carcinoma are managed similarly, whereas submucosal invasion by carcinoma requires en bloc resection.
- Social media activity in the area of scientific journal publications has increased significantly over the last decade. Several studies have suggested that journal article citations can be positively impacted by an increase in social media activity. Preliminary data have also suggested that published articles in the field of gastroenterology and hepatology that were discussed on Twitter were independently associated with higher citation rates compared with those that were not. Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (GIE) is the most widely cited endoscopy-focused journal in the world.
