    Improving Quality in Upper Endoscopy

    Prateek Sharma, MD, FASGE reviewing Bazerbachi F, et al. Gastrointest Endosc 2022 Aug.

    With more than 6.1 million EGDs performed in the United States annually, establishing quality measures is imperative, as is continually evaluating and modifying existing quality measures for determining areas in need of improvement and to provide high-quality patient care. After reviewing previously prioritized quality measures, the Quality Assurance in Endoscopy Committee of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy recently provided updated measures and established interventions that can improve performance of these measures.

    Artificial Intelligence Increased Adenoma and Advanced Adenoma Detection Rates in Multicenter Randomized Controlled Trial

    Douglas K. Rex, MD, MASGE reviewing Xu H, et al. Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol 2022 Jul 18.

    Artificial intelligence (AI) has been shown to increase adenoma detection rates by an average of about 10% in randomized controlled trials (RCTs). Meta-analyses of RCTs indicate that advanced adenoma detection is also increased, but this has not been shown in an individual RCT. For this study, investigators evaluated adenoma and advanced adenoma detection in AI-assisted colonoscopies versus conventional colonoscopies performed by expert versus nonexpert endoscopists.



  • Colorectal

    Double Right-Sided Colon Examination Effective No Matter How You Do It

    Douglas K. Rex, MD, MASGE reviewing Kamal F, et al. Endosc Int Open 2022 Jul 11.

    One of the most effective maneuvers to increase adenoma detection during colonoscopy is a second examination. This study identified randomized controlled trials that addressed the value of a second right-sided colon examination in the forward view versus no second examination or a second examination performed as retroflexion.



  • IBD

    Head-to-Head Trial of Ustekinumab Versus Adalimumab for Crohn’s Disease

    Bincy P. Abraham, MD, MS reviewing Sands BE, et al. Lancet 2022 Jun 11.

    Limited data exist in head-to-head studies assessing different biologic therapies for Crohn’s disease. This multicentered randomized phase III trial for the Safety and Efficacy of Adalimumab Versus Ustekinumab for One Year (SEAVUE) study assessed outcomes of biologic-naive patients with moderate to severe Crohn’s disease.



  • IBD

    Early Postoperative Crohn’s Disease Prophylaxis With Biologic Therapy

    David H. Bruining, MD, FASGE reviewing Yanai H, et al. J Crohns Colitis 2022 Jul 27.

    Ideal strategies for preventing postoperative Crohn’s disease (CD) continue to evolve with the expansion of biologic therapies. Researchers sought to explore the effectiveness of these agents in a multinational retrospective cohort study among adult patients with CD who underwent curative ileocecal resection and received prophylactic treatment within 6 months of surgery.
