Guidelines for completion colonoscopy after polyps are found at flexible sigmoidoscopy for investigation of haemorrhoidal-type rectal bleeding

We read with interest the paper by Rutter et al on surveillance guidelines after colonoscopic polypectomy and postcolorectal cancer resection.1 However, like all similar recognised guidelines, they do not address the issue of following up polyps found on a flexible sigmoidoscopy (FS) done to investigate rectal bleeding. With colonoscopy services in...

Colon and rectal cancer survival in seven high-income countries 2010-2014: variation by age and stage at diagnosis (the ICBP SURVMARK-2 project)

ObjectivesAs part of the International Cancer Benchmarking Partnership (ICBP) SURVMARK-2 project, we provide the most recent estimates of colon and rectal cancer survival in seven high-income countries by age and stage at diagnosis.MethodsData from 386 870 patients diagnosed during 2010–2014 from 19 cancer registries in seven countries (Australia, Canada,...

Inflammatory bowel disease and risk of small bowel cancer: a binational population-based cohort study from Denmark and Sweden

ObjectiveCrohn’s disease (CD) is associated with increased risk of small bowel cancer (SBC), but previous studies have been small. We aimed to examine the risk of incident SBC and death from SBC in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).DesignIn a binational, population-based cohort study from Sweden and Denmark of patients with IBD during 1969–2017...

Guidelines on the use of liver biopsy in clinical practice from the British Society of Gastroenterology, the Royal College of Radiologists and the Royal College of Pathology

Liver biopsy is required when clinically important information about the diagnosis, prognosis or management of a patient cannot be obtained by safer means, or for research purposes. There are several approaches to liver biopsy but predominantly percutaneous or transvenous approaches are used. A wide choice of needles is available and the approach and...

Number of reflux episodes on pH-impedance monitoring associates with improved symptom outcome and treatment satisfaction in gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD) patients with regurgitation

ObjectiveNumber of reflux episodes, an adjunctive metric on pH-impedance monitoring, is incompletely studied. We aimed to determine if number of reflux episodes associates with therapeutic outcome in regurgitation predominant gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD).DesignWe performed post hoc analysis of postintervention pH-impedance data from adult...

Prioritisation and the initiation of HCC surveillance in CHB patients: lessons to learn from the COVID-19 crisis

PremiseCOVID-19 was declared a pandemic by WHO in March 2020 resulting in an unprecedented strain on healthcare systems globally.1 Currently, there is no proven treatment for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2, which can cause serious disease with an associated high mortality in a proportion of patients.2 The impact of COVID-19...

Full-field optical coherence tomography: novel imaging technique for extemporaneous high-resolution analysis of mucosal architecture in human gut biopsies

Full-field optical coherence tomography (FFOCT) is an imaging technique of biological tissue based on tissue light reflectance analysis. We evaluated the feasibility of imaging fresh digestive mucosal biopsies after a quick mounting procedure (5 min) using two distinct modalities of FFOCT. In static FFOCT mode, we gained high-resolution images of general...

Gastric biopsies in the assessment and management of patients at risk of gastric adenocarcinoma

The recent BSG guideline on the diagnosis and management of patients at risk of gastric adenocarcinoma1 is a laudable attempt to bring some clarity to this often controversial area. The authors emphasised the importance of high-quality endoscopy with advanced imaging in the management of the patients with gastric atrophy (GA) and gastric intestinal...

Reflux symptoms and oesophageal acidification in treated achalasia patients are often not reflux related

ObjectiveAfter treatment, achalasia patients often develop reflux symptoms. Aim of this case–control study was to investigate mechanisms underlying reflux symptoms in treated achalasia patients by analysing oesophageal function, acidification patterns and symptom perception.DesignForty treated achalasia patients (mean age 52.9 years; 27 (68%) men) were...

Three-dimensional bioprinted hepatorganoids prolong survival of mice with liver failure

ObjectiveShortage of organ donors, a critical challenge for treatment of end-stage organ failure, has motivated the development of alternative strategies to generate organs in vitro. Here, we aim to describe the hepatorganoids, which is a liver tissue model generated by three-dimensional (3D) bioprinting of HepaRG cells and investigate its liver functions...
