th gastritis and peptic ulcers. Helicobater pylori, a bacteria implicated in peptic ulcers and gastritis, was eradicated in 95 percent patients who took a 7-day course of combination therapy with levofloxacin, omeprazole, nitazoxanide (Alinia(R)) and doxycycline (LOAD) compared to eradication in only 80.9 percent of patients on lansoprazole, amoxicillin and clarithromycin (LAC) for seven days.

Capsule Endoscopy Safe for Patients with Implantable Cardiac Devices

A study of 91 patients with implantable cardiac devices such as pacemakers, implantable defibrillators or left ventricular assist devices found that performing capsule endoscopy in these patients is safe and that the devices in general do not interfere with images captured by the capsule. Capsule endoscopy is most often performed for occult GI bleeding, a condition not uncommon among elderly patients, who also have the highest number of implantable cardiac devices.

Bowel Preparation Impacts Follow-up Timetable for Colonoscopy

After studying records on some 788 patients, researchers concluded that inadequate bowel preparation by the patient before colonoscopy resulted in a recommended follow-up colonoscopy 17.1 months earlier than average. By comparison, finding an adenoma during the procedure resulted in a recommended follow-up examination 17.2 months earlier than average.

Researchers Evaluate New Bowel Prep Approaches

In December 2008, a popular OTC bowel preparation for colonoscopy, which contained phosphosoda, was recalled from the market. ACG researchers presented papers evaluating new bowel preparation formulations and approaches.

In a pilot study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Polyethelne Glycol (PEG) plus ascorbic acid (Moviprep) compared to magnesium citrate for bowel preparation before colonoscopy, researchers found that overall colon preparation was excellent or good for the vast majori
