We read with interest the recent article by Cash et al comparing colon capsule (CCE) and CT colonography (CTC) with optical colonoscopy (OC) for detecting colonic polyps and colorectal cancer (CRC) in a screening population.1 The study reports low CTC detection rates for ≥6 mm and ≥10 mm polyps of only 8.6% and 6.3%, respectively. These were much lower than the detection rates seen for CCE and OC. These results contradict larger trials, where the performance of CTC and OC tests are similar. The ...

Background Conventionally, patients with functional dyspepsia are subgrouped based on upper gastrointestinal symptoms, according to the Rome criteria. However, psychological co-morbidity and extraintestinal symptoms are also relevant to functional gastrointestinal disorders. Aim To investigate whether it is possible to subgroup people with functional dyspepsia using factors beyond upper gastrointestinal symptoms. Methods We collected demographic, symptom and psychological health data from adult ...

Oesophageal perforations and anastomotic leaks are associated with high morbidity and mortality. Endoscopic vacuum therapy (EVT) is a promising novel treatment that promotes healing and avoids sepsis. There are no data reporting its use in the UK. We report the first British experience of EVT in two elderly frail patients. Two patients were treated in our institution with EVT using Eso-SPONGE®. One patient had spontaneous oesophageal perforation and the other had anastomotic leakage post-Merendi...

Introduction The Gastroenterology department at Leeds Teaching Hospitals is large tertiary referral centre with a catchment area of more than 8 00 000 people. Several issues have been identified that have impacted on the timely provision of an inpatient endoscopy service such as incomplete pre-endoscopy ward checklists, incomplete bowel preparation for lower gastrointestinal endoscopy, non-adherence to fasting guidelines and last-minute cancellations as a result. We introduced a nurse inpatient ...

Objectives: Patient-reported symptoms correlate poorly with mucosal inflammation. Clinical decision-making may, therefore, not be based on objective evidence of disease activity. We conducted a study to determine factors associated with clinical decision-making in a secondary care inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) population, using a cross-sectional design. Methods: Decisions to request investigations or escalate medical therapy were recorded from outpatient clinic encounters in a cohort of 276 p...

Background Cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS) is a functional gastrointestinal disorder (FGID) characterized by intermittent episodes of nausea and vomiting. Our aim was to report its prevalence and associated features. Methods Data concerning demographics, symptoms, and psychiatric comorbidity were collected. Symptoms compatible with CVS were classified as per Rome III criteria. We recorded whether a diagnosis of CVS was considered in patients after negative investigation. We compared demographics ...

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines for the management of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) state that invasive tests, such as colonoscopy, are not required to make a diagnosis of IBS.1 However, in a recent survey conducted among GPs, approximately 70% believed that IBS was a diagnosis of exclusion,2 although whether this meant that they felt invasive investigations were required to reach a diagnosis of IBS was not examined. Nevertheless, this finding is supporte...
