Arterial blood gas tensions during upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. (1/820)

Arterial blood gas tensions were measured before and during upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, with (group I) and without (group 2) sedation with intravenous diazepam. There was a highly significant fall in the PaO2, which occurred in both groups and was therefore not attributable to diazepam. Measurement of FEV, and FVC before endoscopy had no predictive value for those patients whose PaO2 fell the most.  (+info)

Helicobacter pylori infection, garlic intake and precancerous lesions in a Chinese population at low risk of gastric cancer. (2/820)

BACKGROUND: Cangshan County of Shandong Province has one of the lowest rates of gastric cancer (GC) in China. While intestinal metaplasia (IM) and dysplasia (DYS) are less common in Cangshan than in areas of Shandong at high risk of GC, these precursor lesions nevertheless affect about 20% of adults age > or = 55. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: In order to evaluate determinants of IM and DYS in Cangshan County, a low risk area of GC a survey was conducted among 214 adults who participated in a gastroscopic screening survey in Cangshan County in 1994. METHOD: A dietary interview and measurement of serum Helicobacter pylori antibodies were performed. RESULTS: The prevalence of H. pylori was lowest (19%) among those with normal gastric mucosa, rising steadily to 35% for superficial gastritis (SG), 56% for chronic atrophic gastritis (CAG), 80% for IM, and 100% for DYS. The prevalence odds of precancerous lesions were compared with the odds of normal histology or SG. The odds ratio (OR) or CAG associated with H. pylori positivity was 4.2 (95% confidence interval [CI] : 1.7-10.0), while the OR of IM/DYS associated with H. pylori positivity was 31.5 (95% CI: 5.2-187). After adjusting for H. pylori infection, drinking alcohol was a risk factor for CAG (OR = 3.2, 95% CI: 1.1-9.2) and IM/DYS (OR = 7.8, 95% CI: 1.3-47.7). On the other hand, consumption of garlic showed non-significant protective effects and an inverse association with H. pylori infection. CONCLUSIONS: The findings of this study suggest that infection with H. pylori is a risk factor and garlic may be protective, in the development and progression of advanced precancerous gastric lesions in an area of China at relatively low risk of GC.  (+info)

Precancerous lesions in two counties of China with contrasting gastric cancer risk. (3/820)

BACKGROUND: Gastric cancer (GC) is one of the most common cancers worldwide and shows remarkable geographical variation even within countries such as China. Linqu County in Shandong Province of northeast China has a GC rate that is 15 times higher than that of Cangshan County in Shandong, even though these counties are within 200 miles of each other. METHOD: In order to evaluate the frequency of precancerous gastric lesions in Linqu and Cangshan Counties we examined 3400 adults in Linqu County and 224 adults in Cangshan County. An endoscopic examination with four biopsies was performed in each individual of the two populations. RESULTS: The prevalence of intestinal metaplasia (IM) and dysplasia (DYS) was 30% and 15.1%, respectively, in Linqu compared to 7.9% and 5.6% in Cangshan (P < 0.01). Within these histological categories, advanced grades were found more often in Linqu than in Cangshan. The prevalences of IM and DYS were more common at each biopsy site in Linqu, where the lesions also tended to affect multiple sites. CONCLUSIONS: The findings of this study support the concept that IM and DYS are closely correlated with risks of GC and represent late stages in the multistep process of gastric carcinogenesis.  (+info)

A blind comparison of the effectiveness of endoscopic ultrasonography and endoscopy in staging early gastric cancer. (4/820)

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Endoscopic ultrasonography is expected to be useful for invasion depth staging of early gastric cancer. A prospective blind study of the staging characteristics of endoscopy and endoscopic ultrasonography for early gastric cancer was performed. METHODS: Findings of endoscopy and endoscopic ultrasonography using a 20 MHz thin ultrasound probe were independently reviewed and the results of 52 early gastric cancer lesions analysed. RESULTS: The overall accuracy rates in invasion depth staging of early gastric cancer were 63% for endoscopy and 71% for endoscopic ultrasonography. No statistically significant differences were observed in overall accuracy. Endoscopic ultrasonography tended to overstage, and lesions that were classified as mucosal cancer by endoscopic ultrasonography were very likely (95%) to be limited to the mucosa on histological examination. All 16 lesions staged as mucosal cancer independently but coincidentally by both methods were histologically limited to the mucosa. CONCLUSIONS: Endoscopic ultrasonography is expected to compensate for the understaging of lesions with submucosal invasion that are endoscopically staged as mucosal cancer.  (+info)

Relationship between mucosal levels of Helicobacter pylori-specific IgA, interleukin-8 and gastric inflammation. (5/820)

Mucosal IgA is important in local immune defence. Helicobacter pylori induces a specific IgA response in antral mucosa, but its immunopathology is unknown. Interleukin-8 (IL-8) has been suggested to be important in H. pylori-induced inflammation. Current information on the relationship between H. pylori-induced IgA and mucosal inflammation is limited. To investigate possible associations between mucosal-specific IgA, the toxinogenicity of H. pylori, mucosal levels of IL-8 and gastric inflammation, 52 endoscoped patients were studied. These comprised 28 patients with peptic ulcer and 24 with non-ulcer dyspepsia. Of these patients, 38 had H. pylori infection: 28 with peptic ulcer and 10 with non-ulcer dyspepsia. Antral biopsies were taken for histology, H. pylori culture and measurement of mucosal levels of IL-8 (pg/mg) and specific IgA (A450x1000) by ELISA. Mucosal H. pylori IgA was detectable in 35 out of 38 patients with H. pylori infection, with a median (interquartile) level of 220 (147, 531) units. There was no significant difference in mucosal levels of the IgA antibodies between patients infected with cytotoxin-positive or cagA-positive strains of H. pylori and those with toxin-negative or cagA-negative strains. The IgA levels in those patients with severe neutrophil infiltration were lower than in those with mild or moderate infiltration (P<0.05). There was a weak inverse correlation between antral mucosal IgA and IL-8 in infected patients (r=-0.36; P=0.04). H. pylori infection induced a significant local mucosal IgA response in most infected patients. The level of IgA antibodies does not appear to be correlated with the toxinogenicity of H. pylori. However, patients with severe active inflammation appear to have decreased levels of IgA. An inverse correlation between mucosal IL-8 and IgA may suggest that IL-8-induced inflammation compromises the mucosal IgA defence and renders the mucosa susceptible to further damage.  (+info)

The influence of metronidazole resistance on the efficacy of ranitidine bismuth citrate triple therapy regimens for Helicobacter pylori infection. (6/820)

AIM: To assess the influence of metronidazole resistance on the efficacy of ranitidine bismuth citrate-based triple therapy regimens in two consecutive studies. METHODS: In the first study, patients with a culture-proven Helicobacter pylori infection were treated with ranitidine bismuth citrate 400 mg, metronidazole 500 mg, and clarithromycin 500 mg, all twice daily for 1 week (RMC). In the second study, amoxycillin 1000 mg was substituted for clarithromycin (RMA). Susceptibility testing for metronidazole was performed with the E-test. Follow-up endoscopy was performed after >/= 4 weeks. Antral biopsy samples were taken for histology and urease test, and culture and corpus samples for histology and culture. RESULTS: 112 patients, 53 males, age 55 +/- 14 years (39 duodenal ulcer, 7 gastric ulcer and 66 gastritis) were treated with RMC, and 89 patients, 52 males, age 58 +/- 15 years (23 duodenal ulcer, 7 gastric ulcer and 59 gastritis) were treated with RMA. For RMC, intention-to-treat eradication results were 98% (59/60, 95% CI: 91-100%) and 95% (20/21, 95% CI: 76-100%) for metronidazole susceptible and resistant strains, respectively (P = 0.45). For RMA these figures were 87% (53/61, 95% CI: 76-94%) for metronidazole susceptible strains and 22% (2/9, 95% CI: 3-60%) for resistant strains (P = 0.0001). CONCLUSION: Both regimens are effective in metronidazole susceptible strains. However, in contrast to the amoxycillin-containing regimen, that containing clarithromycin is also effective in resistant strains.  (+info)

Accuracy of screening for gastric cancer using serum pepsinogen concentrations. (7/820)

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The characteristics of pepsinogen screening for gastric cancer were investigated to establish a suitable cut off point for identifying gastric cancer, using endoscopic diagnosis as the yardstick. SUBJECTS/METHODS: Serum pepsinogen concentrations were measured in 5113 subjects who were also screened for gastric cancer by endoscopy. The cut off point for pepsinogen was determined using receiver operator characteristics curves. RESULTS: The most suitable cut off point was a pepsinogen I concentration of less than 70 ng/ml and a ratio of pepsinogen I to pepsinogen II of less than 3. 0. Using this cut off point, the sensitivity and specificity of pepsinogen screening for gastric cancer were 84.6% and 73.5% respectively. All cases of gastric cancer in patients with severe atrophic gastritis were detected. However, two of four cases of gastric cancer in patients with mild atrophic gastritis were overlooked. In subjects with mild atrophic gastritis, when gastric cancer arises within the fundic gland region, the size of the lesion determines whether it is possible to detect cancer by serum pepsinogen screening. CONCLUSION: Pepsinogen screening has many advantages, including its suitability for combination with other screening methods because it is simple and inexpensive.  (+info)

Controversies and consensus in the diagnosis, work-up and treatment of gastric lymphoma: an international survey. (8/820)

BACKGROUND: Variations in diagnostic criteria and staging procedures in cancer patients have important consequences for patient selection and often preclude meaningful comparison of published series. In gastric lymphoma, these effects will play a role, since diagnostic criteria are controversial. Moreover, staging procedures and therapeutic choices are influenced by insights from different clinical specialisms. METHODS: To review the management of gastric lymphoma, formatted questionnaires were mailed to leading institutes with a special interest in this field in Europe, the United States and Japan. RESULTS: Nineteen centers agreed to contribute. Minimum histological criteria varied among pathologists with a notable influence of the classification system used in the different countries. Detailed evaluation of the lymphoma distribution in the gastric wall and routine staging of the GI-tract differed between groups leaded by medical oncologists and gastroenterologists. This results in basically different patient selections and bias in treatment outcome. Similar effects were recorded for the role of gastric resection and radiotherapy. CONCLUSIONS: This study gives insight in the basis of the decisions that result in different approaches in the management of gastric MALT-NHL and in the effects for patient selection and treatment results and may help in the design of future clinical trials.  (+info)

This procedure allows us to directly examine the mucosa (lining) of the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum. These are common locations of many important gastrointestinal diseases such as reflux disease, hiatus hernia, oesophageal and stomach cancers, oesophageal strictures, stomach and duodenal ulcers and coeliac disease.. Gastroscopy requires the stomach to be empty to provide us with the best possible views. During gastroscopy we are able to diagnose abnormalities by direct inspection and confirm the findings by biopsy and microscopic examination. We can also diagnose Helicobacter pylori which can lead to peptic ulcers and stomach cancer. Additionally, we can treat many disorders such as strictures (narrowing) of the oesophagus by dilatation (stretching)..

Contrast enhancing media has been mainly used in enhancing the color doppler signal so far. Since conventional abdominal ultrasonography can not detect the small particles of contrast enhancer due to its low frequency range, it was rarely used in B-mode imaging. However, endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) with a high frequency range can detect the particles and produce a contrast-enhancing effect when injecting a contrast enhancer such as Levovist. Gastric submucosal tumor shows various ultrasonograpic features, depending on histopathology, but its differential diagnosis is limited. We experienced two cases where the enhancing features on EUS for submucosal tumors were recognized by using Levovist and this helped preoperative prediction of differential diagnosis. The use of contrast enhancer such as Levovist during EUS of submucosal tumor enables us to learn the hemodynamic features of the tumor. Therefore, the differential diagnosis and prediction of the characteristics of the submucosal tumor ...

A 44-year-old man consulted an internist because of abnormalities in an upper gastrointestinal series. It showed an elevated lesion with central depression in the greater curvature of the middle part of the stomach. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy showed an elevated lesion with central depression, bridging hold, and no abnormalities of the gastric mucosa in the greater curvature of the middle part of the stomach. Endoscopic ultrasonography showed a submucosal tumor derived from the muscle layer of the stomach. Computed tomography showed a 22-mm tumor in the upper part of the stomach. Integrated position emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) showed an intense tracer uptake by the tumor. Based on these findings, a gastrointestinal stromal tumor was suspected and laparoscopic endoscopic cooperative surgery was performed.

Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) is a continuously evolving technique that has revolutionized the diagnosis, staging, and treatment of superficial neoplasms throughout the digestive tract. As a minimally invasive technique, it offers an alternative to operative resection and mucosal ablation. For neoplasms limited to the mucosa, EMR compares equivalently with operative resection for R0 status (no residual neoplasia) and favorably for morbidity and mortality. In contrast with mucosal ablation, EMR delivers a more precise and predictable depth of tissue effect and, most important, provides the resected specimen for histopathologic analysis. EMR was pioneered in Eastern Asia as a technique for resection of early gastric cancers. Incrementally, the tools and techniques for EMR have evolved to be employed around the globe for eradication of superficial lesions throughout the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, and colon. Owing to improvements in endoscopic detection and recognition, more sessile, flat,
A gastroscopy often takes less than 15 minutes, although it may take longer if its being used to treat a condition.. The procedure will usually be carried out by an endoscopist (a healthcare professional who specialises in performing endoscopies) and assisted by a nurse.

While UMC care is exceedingly good, going in late on a Friday isnt always a good idea. With the weekend, fill-in doctors not aware of her complications always seem to put off specific plans of action till the new weeks starts, and that was the case. IV pain meds over the weekend couldnt touch her sore throat pain, so she is still off food and water, but getting fluids via IV as well. Her WBC is still exceedingly low making her an infection risk, so shes been getting some strong antibiotics as well. Theyve transfused a unit of blood and platelets, but the effects were short-lived. They took her off her blood thinners (were both on Coumadin for different reasons), and are using an injectable version so she can tolerate a gastroscopy to see what is going on. Theyll also give her another unit of platelets before hand to prevent bleeding if they scratch her esophagus. So well know more after tomorrow, but that is what has been going on. No serious talk of a stomach tube yet for feeding, ...
