Introduction null Healthcare workers (HCWs) remain on the front line of the battle against SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 infection and are among the highest groups at risk of infection during this raging pandemic. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess incidence of postvaccination SARS-CoV-2 infection among vaccinated HCWs. null Methods null We searched multiple databases from inception through August 2021 to identify studies that reported on incidence of postvaccination SARS-CoV...

Frailty represents a state of vulnerability to multiple internal physiologic factors, as well as external pressures, and has been associated with clinical outcomes. We aim to understand the impact of frailty on patients admitted with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) by using the validated Hospital Frailty Risk Score, which is implemented in several hospitals worldwide. We conducted a nation-wide retrospective cohort study to determine the effect of frailty on the risk of in-patient mortality, hepa...

BACKGROUND Transoral incisionless fundoplication (TIF) has been used for treating chronic gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) refractory to medical therapy. We aim to investigate the complications associated with TIF using a national database. METHODS We analyzed post-marketing surveillance data from the FDA Manufacturer and User Facility Device Experience (MAUDE) database from Jan 2011 through Jan 2021. RESULTS During the study period, approximately 95 event cases reported to the FDA. Approx...

Background Intragastric balloons (IGBs) have been used to bridge the obesity treatment gap with the benefits of being minimally invasive but still required endoscopy. The Elipse IGB is a swallowable balloon that is spontaneously excreted at ∼16 weeks. However, studies are limited by small sample sizes. The authors aim to assess clinically relevant endpoints, namely weight loss outcomes, metabolic profile, balloon tolerability, and adverse events. Methods A literature search was performed from se...

Background & Aims null Several endoscopic methods have been proposed for the treatment of large biliary stones. We assessed the comparative efficacy of these treatments through a network meta-analysis. null null null Methods null Nineteen randomized controlled trials (2752 patients) comparing different treatments for management of large bile stones (>10 mm) (endoscopic sphincterotomy, balloon sphincteroplasty, sphincterotomy followed by endoscopic papillary large balloon dilation [S+EPLBD], mech...

BACKGROUND There is limited evidence on the efficacy of peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) in patients with esophageal diverticula. AIMS This meta-analysis aimed to assess the efficacy and safety profile of POEM in patients with Zenker (ZD) and epiphrenic diverticula. METHODS With a literature search through August 2020, we identified 12 studies (300 patients) assessing POEM in patients with esophageal diverticula. The primary outcome was treatment success. Results were expressed as pooled rates ...
