Objectives:Autism spectrum disorder is a neurodevelopmental condition that typically displays socio-communicative impairment as well as restricted stereotyped interests and activities, in which gastrointestinal disturbances are commonly reported. We report the case of a boy with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnosis, severe cognitive disability and celiac disease in which an unexpected improvement of autistic core symptoms was observed after four months of probiotic treatment.Method:The case ...

Background & Aims Computed tomographic colonography (CTC) is a reliable option for screening subjects who are unable or unwilling to undergo optical colonoscopy (OC). A colon capsule (PillCam Colon2 [CC2]; GivenImaging Ltd., Yokneam, Israel) has shown promising results in detecting polyps larger than 6 mm. We compared the accuracy of CC2 and CTC in identifying individuals with at least 1 polyp greater than 6 mm and subjects' attitude toward the procedures. Methods Fifty individuals (mean age, 59...

Autism spectrum disorder is a complex neurodevelopmental disease where gastrointestinal disturbance is commonly reported. Here we review the evidence suggesting that gut microbota my play a role in this disease and summarize comparative studies we found in international literature on the topic. Discussion of results, methodology of the data collection, bias of selection and behavioral interferences lead to the conclusion that changes in the gut microbiota is a significant piece of autism spectru...

Abstract Background Hyoscine N-butylbromide (HBB), commonly used during colonoscopy to facilitate cecal intubation, has been proposed to increase the adenoma detection rate (ADR). Aims To evaluate whether HBB administration increases the adenoma detection rate and influences patients’ tolerance. Methods Consecutive colonoscopy outpatients were randomized after cecal intubation to receive either 20 mg HBB or placebo i.v. The number, size, histology and location of polyps were recorded. The air re...

BACKGROUND:The increasing demand for colonoscopy has renewed the interest for unsedated procedures. Alternative techniques, such as carbon dioxide insufflation and warm-water infusion, have been advocated to improve patient tolerance for colonoscopy in comparison with air insufflation.OBJECTIVE:The

Abstract Background Not much is known about errors and near misses in digestive endoscopy. Aims To verify whether an incident report, with certain facilitating features, gives useful information about unintended events, only excluding errors in medical diagnosis. Method Nine endoscopy units took part in this cross sectional, prospective, multicentre study which lasted for two weeks. Members of the staff were required to report any unintended, potentially dangerous event observed during the daily...
