OBJECTIVE Baseline liver stiffness (LS) is prognostically relevant in patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection but may change after successful HCV eradication. Data on post-treatment LS for a further risk stratification remain scarce. Here, we study the kinetics of LS and laboratory parameters in patients undergoing HCV treatment and analyze the association of post-treatment LS with outcome parameters. METHODS In a cohort of 1011 chronic HCV patients undergoing DAA treatment, we i...

We examined the predictive factors of PEP after SEMS insertion to treat obstructive jaundice due to malignancy. METHODS Ninety patients who underwent biliary SEMS insertion for biliary obstruction due to malignancy at Iwata City Hospital between 2010 and 2018 were reviewed. We evaluated the relati...

OBJECTIVE To examine the incidence and severity of paracetamol poisoning in a population-based cohort in Iceland. A previous study showed a decrease in the incidence during a financial crisis in Iceland, by approximately half (16/100,000 annually). The aims of the study were to assess the incidence and nature of paracetamol poisoning after economic recovery in Iceland and to compare intentional and accidental poisoning. METHODS Paracetamol serum concentrations were used to identify patients in t...

INTRODUCTION To improve oncological outcome in right colon cancer surgery, an extended mesenterectomy (D3) is under evaluation. In this procedure, all tissue anterior and posterior to the superior mesenteric vessels from the middle colic to ileocolic artery origin is removed, causing injury to the superior mesenteric nerve plexus. The aim was to study the effects of this injury on bowel dynamics and quality of life (QoL). METHODS Patients undergoing right colectomy with conventional D2- and exte...
