This Guideline is an official statement of the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE). It provides practical advice on how to achieve successful cannulation and sphincterotomy at minimum risk to the patient. The Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development, and Evaluation (GRADE) system was adopted to define the strength of recommendations and the quality of evidence. Main recommendations 1 ESGE suggests that difficult biliary cannulation is defined by the presence ...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is safe and effective for eradicating intestinal metaplasia and neoplasia in patients with Barrett's esophagus. We sought to assess the safety and efficacy of RFA in conjunction with baseline endoscopic resection for high-grade intraepithelial neoplasia (HGIN) and early cancer.

METHODS: This multicenter, prospective cohort study included 24 patients (mean age, 65 years; median Barrett's esophagus, 8 cm), with Barrett's esophagus of < or ...

BACKGROUND: Few data are available on the accuracy of preoperative imaging or on long-term outcome after surgery for intraductal papillary and mucinous tumors of the pancreas. The aims of this study were to assess the following: (1) the accuracy of preoperative computed tomography, endoscopic retrograde pancreatography, and endoscopic ultrasonography for determination of tumor invasion and pancreatic extension as compared with surgical findings; (2) the long-term outcome after ...

1:  ESGE suggests using contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) as the first-line imaging modality on admission when indicated and up to the 4th week from onset in the absence of contraindications. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may be used instead of CT in patients with contraindications to contrast-enhanced CT, and after the 4th week from onset when invasive intervention is considered because the contents (liquid vs. solid) of pancreatic collections are better characterized by MRI ...

BACKGROUND: An ingestible capsule consisting of an endoscope equipped with a video camera at both ends was designed to explore the colon. This study compared capsule endoscopy with optical colonoscopy for the detection of colorectal polyps and cancer.

METHODS: We performed a prospective, multicenter study comparing capsule endoscopy with optical colonoscopy (the standard for comparison) in a cohort of patients with known or suspected colonic disease for the detection of colorectal polyps ...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Clarification of the position of the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) regarding the interventional options available for treating patients with chronic pancreatitis.

METHODS: Systematic literature search to answer explicit key questions with levels of evidence serving to determine recommendation grades. The ESGE funded development of the Guideline.

SUMMARY OF SELECTED RECOMMENDATIONS: For treating painful uncomplicated chronic pancreatitis, the ...

PURPOSE: Cytokines have been associated with the development of sepsis and diffuse tissue injury following septic or endotoxic challenges in humans. Furthermore, relative organ-system dysfunction, not specific organ dysfunction, appears to predict outcome from critical illness. We hypothesized that persistence of inflammatory cytokines within the circulation, reflecting a generalized systemic inflammatory response, is associated with multiple-system organ failure (MSOF) and death from ...

Immune dysregulations in alcoholic liver diseases are still unclear, especially regarding alcoholic hepatitis inflammatory burst. Interleukin-17 (IL-17) is known to enhance neutrophil recruitment. We studied the IL-17 pathway in alcoholic cirrhosis and alcoholic hepatitis. Patients with alcoholic liver disease were compared with patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection or autoimmune liver disease and with healthy controls. IL-17 plasma levels and peripheral blood ...

Few single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been reproducibly associated with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Our aim was to test the association between nine SNPs and HCC occurrence. SNPs in genes linked to HCC (DEPDC5, GRIK1, KIF1B, STAT4, MICA, DLC1, DDX18) or to liver damage (PNPLA3-rs738409, TM6SF2-rs58542926) in GWAS were genotyped in discovery cohorts including 1,020 HCC, 2,021 controls with chronic liver disease and 2,484 healthy individuals and replication was performed in ...

ESGE suggests endoscopic therapy and/or extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL) as the first-line therapy for painful uncomplicated chronic pancreatitis (CP) with an obstructed main pancreatic duct (MPD) in the head/body of the pancreas. The clinical response should be evaluated at 6 - 8 weeks; if it appears unsatisfactory, the patient's case should be discussed again in a multidisciplinary team and surgical options should be considered.Weak recommendation, low quality evidence.ESGE ...

BACKGROUND: Intestinal metaplastic mucosa in Barrett's oesophagus can be replaced by squamous epithelium after mucosal thermal ablation associated with acid suppression therapy.

AIMS: To assess whether restoration of squamous epithelium can be obtained after ablation of Barrett's oesophagus using argon plasma coagulation (APC) associated with proton pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy.

METHODS: Thirty one patients with Barrett's oesophagus received APC. Omeprazole (40 mg/day) was given from the ...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: A recent genome-wide association study identified genetic polymorphism (rs738409 C>G) in the PNPLA3/adiponutrin gene associated with liver steatosis. This variant has also been linked to increased risk of alcoholic liver disease (ALD) and cirrhosis in Mestizo Mexicans with excessive alcohol intake. Our aim was to study the influence of this polymorphism on European Caucasian patients with histologically suggestive ALD.

METHODS: Three-hundred-and-twenty-eight healthy ...

BACKGROUND: Ki-ras mutation analysis from material collected during ERCP has been claimed to improve the diagnosis of pancreatic and bile duct carcinomas as compared with conventional cytology. Our aim was to study the relative contribution of both Ki-ras analysis and brush cytology in patients with a significant stricture at ERCP.

METHODS: Brushings were collected in duplicate for both analyses in 142 patients in whom a definitive diagnosis was obtained by histology or a minimal ...

BACKGROUND: Self-expandable metal stents (SEMSs) have been suggested for the treatment of benign upper GI leaks and perforations. Nevertheless, uncomplicated removal remains difficult. Placement of a self-expandable plastic stent (SEPS) into an SEMS can facilitate retrieval.

OBJECTIVES: This study reviews our experience with sequential SEMS/SEPS placement in patients with benign upper GI leaks or perforations.

DESIGN: A retrospective review of the chart of each patient who underwent SEMS ...

The incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is increasing in Western countries. Although several clinical factors have been identified, many individuals never develop HCC, suggesting a genetic susceptibility. However, to date, only a few single-nucleotide polymorphisms have been reproducibly shown to be linked to HCC onset. A variant (rs738409 C>G, encoding for p.I148M) in the PNPLA3 gene is associated with liver damage in chronic liver diseases. Interestingly, several studies have ...
