Helicobacter pylori is the most frequent cause of chronic active gastritis (CAG), namely the first step for gastric cancer development. When infection is not detected at histology, another test is advised. EndoFaster is novel device that reveal the presence of H. pylori by determining ammonium concentration in the gastric juice during endoscopy. We evaluated whether this test may improve etiological diagnosis in CAG patients. In 595 consecutive patients who underwent upper endoscopy gastric juic...

We report onset, course, correlations with comorbidities, and diagnostic accuracy of nasopharyngeal swab in 539 individuals suspected to carry SARS-COV-2 admitted to the hospital of Crema, Italy. All individuals underwent clinical and laboratory exams, SARS-COV-2 reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction on nasopharyngeal swab, and chest X-ray and/or computed tomography (CT). Data on onset, course, comorbidities, number of drugs including angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and ...

Abstract Background : The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has had a huge impact on healthcare systems, resulting in many routine diagnostic procedures either being halted or postponed. Aims To evaluate whether the diagnoses of colorectal, gastric and pancreatic cancers have been impacted by the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic in Italy. Methods : A survey designed to collect the number of histologically-proven diagnoses of the three cancers in gastroenterology services across Italy from January 1 to October 31 in 2017-2...

Abstract Background/Aim H. pylori plays a major role in gastroduodenal diseases. Since its incidence is decreasing in developed countries, gastric biopsies were negative in several patients managed in clinical practice. We tested whether EndoFasterⓇ − a device allowing real-time H. pylori detection by gastric juice analysis – may optimize the need of biopsies. Methods In this prospective, multicentre study, the accuracy of EndoFasterⓇ for H. pylori detection was computed by using histology of ga...

Background and study aim Pre-endoscopic use of a preparation with tensioactive and mucolytic agents improved gastric mucosa visualization in Eastern studies. Data on Western population are scanty. Patients and methods This prospective, endoscopist-blinded, randomized study enrolled patients who underwent esophagogastroduodenoscopy in a single center. Before endoscopy patients, were randomized to receive or not receive an oral preparation with simethicone and N-acetylcysteine in water. A preteste...

Description Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is an autosomal dominant disease with an estimated prevalence of 1 in 5000 that is characterized by the presence of vascular malformations (VMs). These result in chronic bleeding, acute hemorrhage, and complications from shunting through VMs. The goal of the Second International HHT Guidelines process was to develop evidence-based consensus guidelines for the management and prevention of HHT-related symptoms and complications. Methods The g...

Goals The present survey from the Italian Society of Digestive Endoscopy (SIED-Societa Italiana di Endoscopia Digestiva) was aimed at reporting infection control practice and outcomes at Digestive Endoscopy Units in a high-incidence area. Background Lombardy was the Italian region with the highest coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) prevalence, at the end of March 2020 accounting for 20% of all worldwide deaths. Joint Gastro-Intestinal societies released recommendations for Endoscopy Units to re...
