Summary Re-usable air/water and suction valves used in endoscopes often demonstrate risk of infection. To the authors' knowledge, the safety and efficacy of re-usable and single-use valves have not been compared to date. As such, a laboratory investigation was undertaken to compare the safety and efficacy of re-usable and single-use valves at 11 Italian endoscopy sites. Safety was evaluated by analysing the rinse liquid of reprocessed re-usable valves ready for use, and efficacy was assessed bas...

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...

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...

Objective Endocuff Vision (EV, Arc Medical Design Ltd., Leeds, England) has shown to increase mucosal exposure, and consequently adenoma detection rate (ADR), during colonoscopy. This nationwide multicentre study assessed possible benefits and harms of implementing EV in a Faecal Immunochemical Test (FIT)-based screening program. Design Patients undergoing colonoscopy after a FIT+ test were randomised 1:1 to receive colonoscopy with EV or standard colonoscopy, stratified by gender, age, and scre...

ABSTRACT The new corona virus disease has started in Wuhan - China at the end of 2019 and quickly spread with a pandemic trend across the rest of the world. The scientific community is making an extraordinary effort to study and control the situation, but the results are just partial. Based on the most recent scientific literature and strong statements by the most prestigious international health institutions, the Italian Society of Digestive Endoscopy has drawn up some recommendations about the...

Abstract Introduction A prospective survey to evaluate the diagnostic workup of cystic pancreatic neoplasms (CPNs) according to the Italian guidelines. Methods An online data sheet was built. Results Fifteen of the 1385 patients (1.1%) had non cystic neoplastic lesions. Forty percent (518/1295) had at least one 1st degree relative affected by a solid tumor of the digestive and extra-digestive organs. Symptoms/signs associated with the cystic lesion were present in 24.5% of the patients. The cyst...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to evaluate trends in hospitalizations and outcomes of acute pancreatitis (AP) according to first admitting hospital unit and hospital volumes. METHODS: Hospital discharge records of patients with AP admitted in the Veneto Region (Northeast Italy) during the period 2001-2015 were examined. RESULTS: A total of 23,389 patients (54% males; mean age, 62.2 years; standard deviation, 19.3 years) were admitted for AP. Both hospitalization (32.4 to 29.5/100,000 inhabitants p...
