    Atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia worldwide with increasing frequency noted with age. Hyperthyroidism is a well-known cause of atrial fibrillation with a 16%-60% prevalence of atrial fibrillation in patients with known hyperthyroidism Ross et al. (2016). While hyperthyroidism as a causative factor of atrial fibrillation is well established, this literature review aims to answer several questions on this topic including: 1. The relationship of atrial fibrillation to ...

    INTRODUCTION: Elective therapeutic endoscopy is an important component of care of cirrhotic patients, but there are concerns regarding the risk of bleeding. This study examined the incidence, risk factors, and outcomes of bleeding after endoscopic variceal ligation (EVL), colonoscopic polypectomy, and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography with sphincterotomy in cirrhotic patients.

    METHODS: A cohort study of patients with cirrhosis who underwent the above procedures at a single ...

    BACKGROUND: Screening colonoscopy aims to interrupt the adenoma-carcinoma sequence by removing all precancerous adenomatous polyps. Adenomatous polyp detection rate (ADR) can vary between endoscopists as well as between race, age, and risk of colorectal cancer (CRC). The purpose of this study was to compare ADR among academic gastroenterologists (A-GI), non-A-GI, and surgeons for endoscopies performed in the same endoscopic suite of a large medical center with a predominately African ...

    BACKGROUND: Blue light imaging (BLI) has been shown to improve the characterization of colorectal polyps among the endoscopy experts. We aimed to determine if this technology could be taught to endoscopy trainees while maintaining high accuracy and interobserver agreement.

    METHODS: Twenty-one gastroenterology trainees (fellows) from two academic institutions participated in this prospective study. Each trainee completed a web-based learning comprising four modules: pre-test, didactic ...

    Gallstones account for majority of acute pancreatitis in the Western world. Increase in number and smaller size of the stones increases the risk for biliary pancreatitis. In addition to features of acute pancreatitis, these patients also have cholestatic clinical picture. Fluid therapy and enteral nutrition are vital components in management of any case of acute pancreatitis. During initial evaluation, a right upper quadrant ultrasonogram is particularly important. On a case-bycase ...

    New immuno-therapeutic agents like pembrolizumab used in cancer treatment are known to cause immune-mediated hepatitis. Most of these cases are straightforward when the onset of transaminitis correlates with the introduction of the medication. This agent causing hepatitis B reactivation has been reported only once. To have both these adverse effects occurring at the same time in a patient is uncommon and presents a clinical challenge. Our patient was a 49-year-old gentleman diagnosed ...

    There have been multiple reports of allergic reactions associated with acute coronary syndromes. This has been classically described as Kounis syndrome. We present an unusual case of 70-year-old male with multiple prior hypersensitivity reactions and history of coronary artery bypass grafting who presented recurrent episode of severe angioedema and anaphylaxis. He responded to epinephrine but subsequently developed a non-ST elevation myocardial infarction with worsening heart failure. ...
