Endoscopic ultrasound-guided pancreatic pseudocyst drainage with lumen-apposing metal stents or plastic double-pigtail stents: A multifactorial analysis

Introduction Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided puncture and drainage is a widely accepted nonsurgical intervention for pancreatic pseudocysts (PPs).[ 1 , 2 , 3 ] Endoscopic interventions include endoscopic cystogastrostomy, balloon dilation of the fistula, endoscopic necrosectomy, and placement of double-pigtail stents for drainage. Recently, covered self-expandable metal stents (CSEMS), which have a lumen-apposing design and are used to drain fluid collections, have been studied.[ 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 ] However, the efficiency of plastic stents and lumen

Dr. Google, The Specialist in Diabetes and Metabolic Diseases


Smartphones and other mobile devices have become an integral component of daily life for many people worldwide, offering a broad and up-growing range of functions and utilities. Social media, the information and communication technology, and the enhanced usability and pervasiveness of mobile devices have resulted in an enormous interest in the development of a large diversity of health care applications. This dynamic time for new technologies that overlaps the current epidemic of diabetes and obesity gives smartphones the potential to play a role in increasing healthcare delivery and efficiency. Research has consistently shown that diabetes and obesity management represents the medical area where mobile devices could help in achieving therapeutic goals and enhance patients’ quality of life. This paper comprises a brief overview of the current state of development, requirements and regulations in the health mobile applications industry, and a short overlook on mobile applications diversity, safety and efficacy towards the self-management of individuals with diabetes mellitus and/ or obesity and the enhancement of their quality of life.

Pay for performance and the management of hypertension

. What is P4P? Pay for performance is an over-arching term for a method of rewarding organizations and/or individuals based upon their performance against identified criteria, which, depending upon the scheme, may include measures of quality, reporting, efficiency, and/or value. [ 4 ] Therefore, the aims, content, and structure of P4P schemes are highly diverse. However, there is commonality in that schemes are focused upon modifying healthcare provider behaviors and that payments are linked to achievement of identified criteria, frequently quality indicators.

Endoscopic diagnosis and treatment of precancerous colorectal lesions in patients with inflammatory bowel disease: How does the latest SCENIC international consensus intersect with our clinical practice?

endoscopic diagnostics, the SCENIC consensus recommends that the term ‘dysplasia associated lesion or mass’ (DALM) should no longer be used. Previously, limited resolution of classical endoscopy greatly compromised the visualization of mucosal surface details, and therefore, endoscopists had to rely on low-efficiency methods such as random biopsy to detect dysplasia. In this context, DALM was used to describe the colonic mucosa containing precancerous lesions. The rapid development of endoscopic techniques in recent years has enabled us to fully observe suspicious lesions

Hepatitis C in Cameroon: What is the progress from 2001 to 2016?

in patients with low CD4 cell count in Africa despite frequent coinfections with HBV or HCV. These findings clearly indicate that the effect of antiviral treatments on HCV coinfection is still poorly investigated in Cameroon and further investigations are necessary to determine and better understand potential drug interactions that might affect their efficiency. Treatment Modern treatments against hepatitis C in Cameroon The treatment of hepatitis C in Cameroon for more than 10 years was only based on the combination of pegylated interferon alpha
