These patients are challenging to treat due to the diffuse nature of the neoplastic bleeding lesions, high re-bleeding rates and significant transfusion requirements. TC-325(Cook Medical, North Carolina, USA) is a haemostatic powder for GI bleeding. The aim of this study was to examine the outcomes of Upper gastrointestinal bleeds secondary to tumours treated with Hemospray therapy. METHODS Data was pros...

Minimally invasive metabobariatric (MB) endoscopic therapies are adjunct treatments that can potentially bridge the gap between surgical interventions and medical therapy.

Background & AimsBarrett esophagus (BE) is a risk factor for the development of esophageal adenocarcinoma, however our understanding of how Barrett esophagus evolves is still poorly understood. We demonstrate that dynamic clonal phenotypic changes occur at the gland level, the mechanism by which these changes evolve, and how diversity may play a role in progression. MethodsWe analyzed the distribution and diversity of gland phenotype between and within BE biopsies and the background mucosa of th...
