Correlation between non-invasive markers of fibrosis with shear wave elastography and AFI among adult patients diagnosed with NAFLD biopsy

Engada, R Jr., Cervantes JG, Alonte AJ

Shear wave elastography (SWE) and acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) are novel non-invasive ultrasound-based imaging studies which have enabled clinicians to assess the degree of fibrosis among patients with chronic liver disease. Data on the use of these diagnostic studies among patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) are few. This study aims to determine the sensitivity and specificity of SWE and ARFI elastography in determining fibrosis among patients with ...

Push vs Pull Percutaneous Endoscopy Gastrostomy tube insertion and peristomal site infections: a meta-analysis

Vicente Porciuncula II

Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) insertion provides long-term enteral access. The Pull-type method is the usual procedure which requires passing the feeding tube through the mouth into the stomach and through the abdominal wall. It has been proposed that there is an increased risk of peristomal infections because the device passes through the oropharynx.

The use of mean adenoma-polyp detection rate quotient as a conversion factor with polyp detection rate to predict adenoma detection rate

John Arnel Pangilinan, Vicente Porciuncula II

Adenoma detection rate (ADR) is one of the most commonly used quality indicators for colonoscopy. However, its use becomes limited in small endoscopy suites due to the required access to patient records for each endoscopist and an integrated pathology and endoscopy database.
