Introduction: Patient-derived organoids (PDOs) have become attractive tools for genetic studies, biomarker identification, drug screening, and preclinical evaluation of personalized medicine strategies. Previously, we created gastric cancer PDOs from esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) biopsy specimens. As a continuation of our previous work, we sought to optimize methods for creating EGD-derived PDOs for drug sensitivity testing within clinically actionable time constraints. Methods: We previously...

Traditional endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is not feasible and alternative approach is usually required. A novel alternative approach of addressing these challenging cases is assessed by this case series. All patients who underwent percutaneous transhepatic cholangioscopy (PTCS) ...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate factors associated with PA in CP. METHODS: A national insurance database of 120 million US patients was used. Adults with an International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision (ICD-9) code for CP (577.1) from January 1, 2009, to December 31, 20014, were identified. Patients' age, sex, and ICD-9 codes for...
