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.

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) comprises a spectrum of liver conditions characterized by significant lipid deposition within hepatocytes. As an overarching diagnosis, NAFLD contains a continuum of progressive liver diseases ranging from isolated liver steatosis to necroinflammatory states leading to end-stage liver disease. Nonalcoholic fatty liver and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis are distinguished by their histologic patterns, with the former exhibiting steatosis without fibrosis or i...
The 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19), an airborne infection caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has resulted in a global pandemic. SARS-CoV-2 relies on the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 receptor for cellular entry and the abundance of this receptor in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract may help explain the GI manifestations, including dysgeusia, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain, present in over 40% of infected patients. GI tract involvement als...
Gastroesophageal reflux (GOR) is defined as "the passage of gastric contents into the esophagus with or without regurgitation and vomiting" and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is defined "when GOR leads to troublesome symptoms affecting the daily functioning and/or complications."

Background/goal null Ulcerative colitis (UC) is characterized by chronic inflammation and progressive course, with potential extraintestinal complications including cardiovascular mortality. Serum proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) levels have been recently recognized as biomarkers of low-grade inflammation and cardiovascular disease. The aim of our study was to evaluate PCSK9 levels in patients with UC and different degrees of disease activity. null Methods null We prospectiv...

BACKGROUND The aim was to compare the differences of clinical-radiologic characteristics between malignant and benign causes of patients with unexplained distal obstructive biliary dilatation and to develop a logistic regression model (nomogram) based on those features to predict malignant causes preoperatively. PATIENTS AND METHODS Clinical-radiologic characteristics of 133 patients with unexplained distal obstructive biliary dilatation were analyzed. Multivariate logistic regression analysis w...
