      Teaser Given the prevalence of overweight and obesity and their associated health conditions, clinicians will be increasingly tasked with the responsibility of addressing overweight and obesity. This article reviews the 5As approach—assess, advise, agree, assist, arrange—and how clinicians can use the approach facilitate weight management discussions with their patients that met the recommendations provided in the 2013 adult weight management guidelines issued by the American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology/The Obesity Society.

      Author(s): Elena M. Stoffel

      Teaser Although almost all gastrointestinal cancers develop from sporadic genomic events, approximately 5% arise from germline mutations in genes associated with cancer predisposition. The number of these genes continues to increase. Tumor phenotypes and family history provide the framework for identifying at-risk individuals. The diagnosis of a hereditary cancer syndrome has implications for management of patients and their families. Systematic approaches that integrate family history and molecular characterization of tumors and polyps facilitate identification of individuals with this genetic predisposition. This article summarizes diagnosis and management of hereditary cancer syndromes associated with gastrointestinal cancers.

      Author(s): Bradley W. Anderson, David A. Ahlquist

      Teaser Emerging molecular tools promise to extend the diagnostic reach of the endoscopist and open doors to population screening for gastrointestinal (GI) cancers. This review briefly addresses biological considerations in marker detection and types of markers, highlights examples of tools under development at each organ site, and appraises the possibility of universal GI cancer screening. The outlook is positive, but further technical refinement and rigorous clinical validation are needed before most of these new approaches are ready for clinical application.

      Teaser Humans are host to complex microbial communities previously termed normal flora and largely overlooked. However, resident microbes contribute to both health and disease. Investigators are beginning to define microbes that contribute to the development of gastrointestinal malignancies and the mechanisms by which this occurs. Resident microbes can induce inflammation, leading to cell proliferation and altered stem cell dynamics, which can lead to alterations in DNA integrity and immune regulation and promote carcinogenesis. Studies in human patients and rodent models of cancer have identified alterations in the microbiota of the stomach, esophagus, and colon that increase the risk for malignancy.

      Teaser Cancer is fundamentally a genetic disease caused by mutational or epigenetic alterations in DNA. There has been a remarkable expansion of the molecular understanding of colonic carcinogenesis in the last 30 years and that understanding is changing many aspects of colorectal cancer care. It is becoming increasingly clear that there are genetic subsets of colorectal cancer that have different risk factors, prognosis, and response to treatment. This article provides a general update on colorectal cancer and highlights the ways that genetics is changing clinical care.

      Author(s): Virginia Martínez-Marín, Robert G. Maki

      Teaser The first 15 years of management of gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) have led to 3 lines of therapy for metastatic disease: imatinib, sunitinib, and regorafenib. In the adjuvant setting, imatinib is usually given for 3 years postoperatively to patients with higher-risk primary tumors that are completely resected. In this review, issues regarding GIST adjuvant therapy are discussed. It is hoped this review will help the reader understand the present standard of care to improve upon it in years to come.

  • Neuroendocrine Tumors
    • Abstract: Publication date: September 2016
      Source:Gastroenterology Clinics of North America, Volume 45, Issue 3
      Author(s): Ron Basuroy, Raj Srirajaskanthan, John K. Ramage

      Teaser Neuroendocrine tumors are increasingly diagnosed, either incidentally as part of screening processes, or for symptoms, which have commonly been mistaken for other disorders initially. The diagnostic workup to characterize tumor behaviour and prognosis focuses on histologic, anatomic, and functional imaging assessments. Several therapeutic options exist for patients ranging from curative and debulking surgery through to liver-directed therapies and systemic treatments. Multimodal therapies are often required over the patient’s disease history. The management paradigm can be complex but should be focused on curative resections and then on controlling symptoms and limiting disease progression. There are several new systemic therapies that have completed phase 3 studies with new compounds being studied in phase 2. Genetic and epigenetic markers may lead to a new era of personalised therapy in the future.

      Teaser Pancreatic cancer is now the third leading cause of cancer related deaths in the United States, yet advances in treatment options have been minimal over the past decade. In this review, we summarize the evaluation and treatments for this disease. We highlight molecular advances that hopefully will soon translate into improved outcomes.

  • Small Bowel Adenocarcinoma
    • Abstract: Publication date: September 2016
      Source:Gastroenterology Clinics of North America, Volume 45, Issue 3
      Author(s): Thomas Aparicio, Aziz Zaanan, Florence Mary, Pauline Afchain, Sylvain Manfredi, Thomas Ronald Jeffry Evans

      Teaser Small bowel adenocarcinomas (SBAs) are rare tumors, but their incidence is increasing. The most common primary location is the duodenum. Even though SBAs are more often sporadic, some diseases are risk factors. Early diagnosis of small bowel adenocarcinoma remains difficult, despite significant radiologic and endoscopic progress. After R0 surgical resection, the main prognostic factor is lymph node invasion. An international randomized trial (BALLAD [Benefit of Adjuvant Chemotherapy For Small Bowel Adenocarcinoma] study) will evaluate the benefit of adjuvant chemotherapy. For metastatic disease, retrospectives studies suggest that platinum-based chemotherapy is the most effective treatment. Phase II studies are ongoing to evaluate targeted therapy in metastatic SBA.

      Teaser Esophageal cancer carries a poor prognosis among gastrointestinal malignancies. Although esophageal squamous cell carcinoma predominates worldwide, Western nations have seen a marked rise in the incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma that parallels the obesity epidemic. Efforts directed toward early detection have been difficult, given that dysplasia and early cancer are generally asymptomatic. However, significant advances have been made in the past 10 to 15 years that allow for endoscopic management and often cure in early stage esophageal malignancy. New diagnostic imaging technologies may provide a means by which cost-effective, early diagnosis of dysplasia allows for definitive therapy and ultimately improves the overall survival among patients.

  • Current Perspectives on Gastric Cancer
    • Abstract: Publication date: September 2016
      Source:Gastroenterology Clinics of North America, Volume 45, Issue 3
      Author(s): Juan M. Marqués-Lespier, María González-Pons, Marcia Cruz-Correa

      Teaser Gastric cancer (GC) is third leading cause of cancer-related death. Only 28.3% of new GC cases survive more than 5 years. Although incidence has declined in the United States, an increase is estimated for 2016. Risk factors include sex (risk is higher in men), Helicobacter pylori infection, heredity, and lifestyle. GC is usually diagnosed between the ages of 60–80 years. Prognosis of GC is largely dependent on the tumor stage at diagnosis and classification as intestinal or diffuse type; diffuse-type GC has worse prognosis. Chemoprevention has been shown to decrease risk, but is currently not used clinically.

      Teaser Ulcerative colitis and Crohn disease are chronic inflammatory diseases with typical onset in early adulthood. These diseases, therefore, can affect a woman throughout the many stages of her life, including menstruation, sexuality, pregnancy, and menopause. Unique health issues face women during these stages and can affect the course of their inflammatory bowel disease as well as treatment strategies and health maintenance. This article covers the non–pregnancy-related issues that are important in caring for women with inflammatory bowel disease. The topics of pregnancy and fertility are covered in a separate review.

  • Women with Cirrhosis
    • Abstract: Publication date: June 2016

      Author(s): Jeanne-Marie Giard, Norah A. Terrault

      Teaser Cirrhosis is less frequent in women than in men, in large part due to the lower prevalence of hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and alcohol use in women. The most common causes of cirrhosis among women are hepatitis C, autoimmune etiologies, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, and alcoholic liver disease. For most chronic liver diseases, the risk of progression to cirrhosis and rates of liver failure and hepatocellular carcinoma are lower in women than in men. Pregnancy is very infrequent in women with cirrhosis due to reduced fertility, but when it occurs, requires specialized management.

      Teaser Women are making great strides at all levels of medicine, including gastroenterology. The proportion of women members in gastroenterology societies has increased nearly 2-fold and the percent of women trainees is 36%. Although there continue to be challenges for women in academic and community practice, the American Gastroenterological Association, American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, and other gastroenterology societies have dedicated substantial resources to foster careers of women in gastroenterology and develop women as leaders in our societies. This article outlines ongoing challenges for women in gastroenterology and some key initiatives addressing barriers to success.

It is important to provide patients with simple dietary recommendations to increase the probability of successful implementation. These recommendations include increasing vegetable, fruit, and fiber intake, consuming lean protein sources to enhance satiety, avoiding or severely limiting highly processed foods, and reducing portion sizes for overweight and obese patients.

      Author(s): Cameron Body, Jennifer A. Christie

      Teaser Many disorders of the gastrointestinal tract are common in pregnancy. Elevated levels of progesterone may lead to alterations in gastrointestinal motility which could contribute to nausea, vomiting, and/or GERD. Pregnancy-induced diarrhea may be due to elevated levels prostaglandins. This article reviews the normal physiologic and structural changes associated with pregnancy that could contribute to many of the common gastrointestinal complaints in pregnant patients. Additionally, the appropriate clinical and laboratory evaluations, other pathologic conditions that should be included in the differential, as well as the nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic therapies for each of these conditions is discussed.

  • Pregnancy and the Patient with Inflammatory Bowel Disease
    • Abstract: Publication date: June 2016
      Source:Gastroenterology Clinics of North America, Volume 45, Issue 2
      Author(s): Ryan A. McConnell, Uma Mahadevan

      Teaser For many women with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), the illness coincides with their childbearing years. IBD increases the risk of pregnancy complications and adverse pregnancy outcomes. The multidisciplinary care team should emphasize the importance of medication adherence to achieve preconception disease control and maintain corticosteroid-free remission throughout pregnancy. Medication adjustments to reduce fetal exposure may be considered on an individualized basis in quiescent disease; however, any benefits of such adjustments remain theoretic and there is risk of worsening disease activity. Mode of delivery is determined by obstetric indications, except for women with active perianal disease who should consider cesarean delivery.

      Author(s): Jasmine K. Zia, Margaret M. Heitkemper

      Teaser This article reviews the sex differences in upper gastrointestinal (GI) motility for both healthy and common dysmotility conditions. It focuses on gastroesophageal reflux disease and other esophageal motor disorders for the esophagus and on gastroparesis and accelerated gastric emptying for the stomach. It also describes differences in upper GI motility signs and symptoms during each female hormonal stage (ie, menstrual cycle, pregnancy, perimenopause, menopause) for both healthy participants and those suffering from one of the aforementioned upper GI dysmotility conditions. More research still needs to be conducted to better understand sex differences in upper GI motility.

      Author(s): Octavia Pickett-Blakely, Laura Uwakwe, Farzana Rashid

      Teaser Approximately 36% of adult women in the United States are obese. Although obesity affects women similarly to men in terms of prevalence, there seem to be gender-specific differences in the pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, and treatment of obesity. Obesity is linked to comorbid diseases involving multiple organ systems, including the gastrointestinal tract, like gastroesophageal reflux disease, fatty liver disease, and gallstones. This article focuses on obesity in women, specifically the impact of obesity on gastrointestinal diseases and reproductive health, as well as the treatment of obesity in women.

  • Metabolic Bone Disease in Primary Biliary Cirrhosis
    • Abstract: Publication date: June 2016
      Source:Gastroenterology Clinics of North America, Volume 45, Issue 2
      Author(s): Lisa M. Glass, Grace Li-Chun Su

      Teaser Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) is a liver-specific autoimmune disease that primarily affects women (female-to-male ratio, 10:1) between 40 and 60 years of age. Metabolic bone disease is a common complication of PBC, affecting 14% to 52% of patients, depending on the duration and severity of liver disease. The osteoporosis seen in PBC seems mainly due to low bone formation, although increased bone resorption may contribute. Treatment of osteoporosis consists primarily of antiresorptive agents. Additional large prospective, long-term studies in patients with PBC are needed to determine efficacy in improving bone density as well as reducing fracture risk.

  • Chronic Constipation
    • Abstract: Publication date: June 2016

      Author(s): Darren M. Brenner, Marmy Shah

      Teaser Chronic constipation is a common disorder that affects approximately 20% of the population and significantly impacts an individual’s quality of life. The diagnosis can be made using standard criteria, and in the absence of alarm signs or symptoms, a determination of the underlying etiology/etiologies should be undertaken. In many instances, these will be gleaned from the history and physical examination. Specialized diagnostic testing may be warranted after the failure of initial laxative trials. Many therapeutic classes of laxatives exist with recent analyses indicating that practicing physicians prefer to use over-the-counter therapies in lieu of more strongly evidence-based prescription pharmaceuticals.

      Teaser There is an evolving understanding that autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is an immunoglobulin (Ig) G4 systemic disease. It can manifest as primarily a pancreatic disorder or in association with other disorders of presumed autoimmune cause. Classic clinical characteristics include obstructive jaundice, abdominal pain, and acute pancreatitis. Thus, AIP can be difficult to distinguish from pancreatic malignancy. However, AIP may respond to therapy with corticosteroids, and has a strong association with other immune mediated diseases. Although primarily a pathologic diagnosis, attempts have been made to reliably diagnose AIP clinically. AIP can be classified as either type 1 or type 2.

  • The Role of Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography in Management
           of Pancreatic Diseases
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2016
      Source:Gastroenterology Clinics of North America, Volume 45, Issue 1
      Author(s): Brian P. Riff, Vinay Chandrasekhara

      Teaser Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography is an effective platform for a variety of therapies in the management of benign and malignant disease of the pancreas. Over the last 50 years, endotherapy has evolved into the first-line therapy in the majority of acute and chronic inflammatory diseases of the pancreas. As this field advances, it is important that gastroenterologists maintain an adequate knowledge of procedure indication, maintain sufficient procedure volume to handle complex pancreatic endotherapy, and understand alternate approaches to pancreatic diseases including medical management, therapy guided by endoscopic ultrasonography, and surgical options.

  • Pancreatic Cystic Neoplasms
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 13 January 2016
      Source:Gastroenterology Clinics of North America
      Author(s): Gyanprakash A. Ketwaroo, Koenraad J. Mortele, Mandeep S. Sawhney

      Teaser The incidence of pancreatic cystic neoplasms is rising, in part from detection through the increasing use of high-resolution cross-sectional imaging techniques. Initial diagnosis is generally based on imaging characteristics identified on computed tomography and/or MRI. Endoscopic ultrasound provides further imaging characterization and also enables fluid aspiration and analysis to additionally aid differentiation. The general approach to these lesions includes surgical intervention and/or surveillance imaging. Taking into account diverse presentations, varying malignant potential, and the uncertain natural history of some of these lesions, an evidence-based approach is limited. This article discusses recent updates in the diagnosis and management of cystic neoplasms of the pancreas.

  • Islet Cell Tumors of the Pancreas
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 13 January 2016
      Source:Gastroenterology Clinics of North America
      Author(s): Sunil Amin, Michelle Kang Kim

      Teaser Islet cell tumors of the pancreas, also known as pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors, constitute less than 5% of pancreatic tumors, and 7% of all neuroendocrine tumors. Most are non-functional, and patients often present with metastatic disease. Functional tumors present with distinct clinical syndromes. Accurate staging is critical as surgery is both the cornerstone of treatment, and the only hope for cure. Medical management involves treating the manifestations of hormonal excess, and using somatastatin analogues when appropriate. Systemic chemotherapy, targeted molecular therapy, and peptide receptor radiotherapy may be used for refractory disease in lieu of or as an adjunct to surgery.

      Teaser Endoscopic drainage is the first-line therapy in the management of pancreatic pseudocysts. Before endoscopic drainage, clinicians should exclude the presence of pancreatic cystic neoplasms and avoid drainage of immature peripancreatic fluid collections or pseudoaneurysms. The indication for endoscopic drainage is not dependent on absolute cyst size alone, but on the presence of attributable signs or symptoms. Endoscopic management should be performed as part of a multidisciplinary approach in close cooperation with surgeons and interventional radiologists. Drainage may be performed either via a transpapillary approach or a transmural approach; additionally, endoscopic necrosectomy may be performed for patients with walled-off necrosis.
