Abstract Background and aims The prevalence and significance of digestive manifestations in COVID-19 remain uncertain. We aimed to assess the prevalence, spectrum, severity, and significance of digestive manifestations in patients hospitalized with COVID-19. Methods Consecutive patients hospitalized with COVID-19 were identified across a geographically diverse alliance of medical centers in North America. Data pertaining to baseline characteristics, symptomatology, laboratory assessment, imaging...

BACKGROUND Same-admission cholecystectomy (CCY) is recommended for mild acute biliary pancreatitis (biliary-AP). However, there is a paucity of research investigating reasons for early (30-day) unplanned readmissions in patients who undergo CCY for biliary-AP. Hence, we sought to investigate this gap using a large population database. METHODS Using the Nationwide Readmission Database (2010-2014), we identified all adults (age ≥ 18 years) with a principal diagnosis of biliary-AP who had undergone...

OBJECTIVES We hypothesized that hospitalizations in cystic fibrosis (CF) would reflect the development of age-related comorbidities. METHODS A retrospective analysis was performed using the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (2002-2017). Hospitalizations for which the principal diagnosis was CF were analyzed regarding age at discharge and presence of comorbidities. Trends were assessed for significance using the Cochran-Armitage test. RESULTS The mean age of patients hospitalized for CF increased from ...

OBJECTIVES Cannabis legalization has increased its use. The incidence of acute pancreatitis (AP) and severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) has also increased. In this study, data on pancreatitis were obtained from 2 states before and after cannabis legalization and compared with 2 states without legalized cannabis. METHODS Data were extracted from State Inpatient Databases from the states of Colorado and Washington before recreational cannabis legalization (2011) and after legalization (2015). Arizona...

OBJECTIVES There is a paucity of studies evaluating predictors of new-onset diabetes mellitus (DM) after acute pancreatitis (AP-related DM). We used a population-based database to evaluate predictors of AP-related DM. METHODS The Nationwide Readmissions Database (2010-2014) was used to identify all nondiabetic adults with an index primary diagnosis of AP. Multiple exclusions were applied to identify cohorts with and without AP-related DM. A case-control study was conducted to identify risk facto...

Abstract Betaine and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) may improve pig performance and increase lean mass, but the mechanisms are not well understood. Gastrointestinal tract, pancreas, spleen and mesenteric fat comprise portal-drained viscera (PDV). Nutrient and energy availability of productive tissues may be compromised by PDV because of its anatomical situation and elevated oxygen consumption. The objective of this study was to determine if the use of betaine, CLA, or both in the diet affects th...

INTRODUCTION Chronic cannabis use had been associated with hyperemesis. We sought to determine whether cannabis liberalization contributed to increased hospitalizations for hyperemesis. METHODS Cannabis use and admissions for hyperemesis in legalized states were compared with those of nonlegalized states, before and after cannabis legalization, using state inpatient databases. RESULTS From 2011 to 2015, cannabis use increased 2.2 times in legalized states and 1.8 times in nonlegalized states. Th...
