Introduction: Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a multisystem connective tissue disease, characterized by chronic inflammation and vascular changes that result in esophageal smooth muscle atrophy and fibrosis. Subsequent progressive loss of peristalsis in the distal esophagus and loss of lower esophageal sphincter function, leads to problems with the pro...

Purpose: In most cases gastroesophageal reflux disease proceeds without macroscopic erosions in the esophagus. We aimed to clarify if abnormalities detectable in magnifying endoscopy may offer additional diagnostic criteria for gastroesophageal reflux disease and to what histopathologic structures do they correspond. Patients/methods: Esophageal...

Objective: We aimed to identify the best method of omeprazole (OME) application with respect to intragastric pH, cytochrome P450 2C19 (CYP2C19) genotype and phenotype. Methods: The patients with non-variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding (NVUGIB) were prospectively enrolled. After the achievement of endoscopic hemostasis, the patients were ran...

We report the case of a 69-year-old man with a spontaneous gastrobiliary fistula. Internal biliary fistulas are usually the result of longstanding, untreated choledocholithiasis, cholecystolithiasis, peptic ulcers or rarely neoplasia. This patient’s unspecific clinical picture led to a late diagnosis, which was made during surgery. How to cite this...

Barrett's esophagus (BE), a complication of gastroesophageal reflux disease, is associated with an increased risk of esophageal cancer. Mitogen-activated protein kinases may play an important role in the pathogenesis of this process. We aimed to evaluate mitogen-activated protein kinases activity in esophageal mucosa of patients with BE and find po...

Specialized intestinal metaplasia (SIM) in Barrett's esophagus is a risk factor of esophageal adenocarcinoma. It often occurs focally and cannot be distinguished from surrounding columnar epithelium with conventional endoscopy. The purpose of this study was evaluation of methylene blue (MB) staining and magnification endoscopy with comparison of pi...
Article
In this paper new, non-invasive methods of training endoscopy using simulators are presented. There are three groups of endoscopie models: mechanical, computer and animal. Due to scientific progress the simulators have been developed step-by-step in order to imitate in vivo conditions as good as possible. There are two most famous and efficient sim...
Article
Mucinous ductal ectasia is an uncommon disorder that is characterized by dilatated main pancreatic duct or side branches filled with thick viscid mucus. Endoscopic examination of the Vater ampulla frequently shows a patulous papillary orifice with extrusion of mucus. The authors report a case of mucinous ductal ectasia of the pancreas and the revie...
