Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) & Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) at IGH

http://www.IndyGastro.com (EUS) Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography, or ERCP, is a specialized technique used to study the ducts of the gallbladder, pancreas, and liver. Ducts are drainage routes; the drainage channels from the liver are called bile or biliary ducts. If your doctor has recommended an ERCP, this page will give you a basic understanding of the procedure. If you have questions and concerns, please consult your doctor. During ERCP, your doctor passes an endoscope through your mouth, esophagus, and stomach into the duodenum, which is the first part of your small intestine. An endoscope is a thin, flexible tube that lets your doctor see inside your bowels. After your doctor sees the common opening to ducts from the liver and pancreas, he passes a narrow plastic tube called a catheter through the endoscope and into the ducts. Your doctor injects a dye into the pancreatic or biliary ducts and takes X-rays with contrast. How Should I Prepare for My ECRP? Stop eating food and unapproved beverages by midnight the night before your endoscopy. You can drink clear liquids until five hours before to your scheduled endoscopy time. The following are approved clear liquids: water, apple juice, white grape juice, cranberry juice, broth, bouillon, tea, black or sweetened coffee, colas/sodas/carbonated beverages, Gatorade and other sports drinks, popsicles, and Jello. Patients scheduled to go under general anesthesia, including Propofol, must stop clear liquids earlier. Please refer to the specific instructions provided by your physician. What can I expect during ERCP? Your doctor may apply a local anesthetic to your throat or give you a sedative to make you more comfortable. Some patients receive antibiotics before the procedure. You will lie on your left side on an X-ray table. As the endoscope passes through your mouth, esophagus, stomach, and duodenum, it does not interfere with breathing. However, you may feel a bloating sensation because of the air introduced through the instrument. What are possible complications of ERCP? Patients tolerate ERCP well when doctors who are specially trained and experienced in the technique perform the procedure. Although complications requiring hospitalization can occur, they are uncommon. Complications can include pancreatitis (an inflammation or infection of the pancreas), infections, bowel perforation, and bleeding. Some patients have adverse reactions to the sedative used. Sometimes the procedure cannot be completed due to technical issues. Risks vary, depending on why the test is performed, what is found during the procedure, what therapeutic intervention is undertaken, and whether a patient has major medical problems. Patients undergoing therapeutic ERCP for stone removal face a higher risk of complications than patients undergoing diagnostic ERCP. Your doctor will discuss your likelihood of complications before you undergo the test. What can I expect after ERCP? If you have ERCP as an outpatient, you will be observed for complications until most of the effects of the medications have worn off. You might experience bloating or pass gas because of the air introduced during the examination. You can resume your usual diet unless you are instructed otherwise. Someone must accompany you home from the procedure because of the sedatives used during the examination. Even if you feel alert after the procedure, the sedatives can affect your judgment and reflexes for the rest of the day. Please contact your doctor promptly if you have any follow-up questions or if you are experiencing any complications due to the procedure.

Fecal Microbiota Transplant (FMT) for the Treatment of Clostridium difficile (C. diff.) Infection

http://www.IndyGastro.com Fecal Microbiota Transplant (FMT) for the Treatment of Clostridium difficile (C. diff.) Infection Fecal Microbiota Transplant (FMT) is a procedure in which fecal matter, or stool, is collected from a tested donor, mixed with a saline or other solution, strained, and placed in a patient, by colonoscopy, endoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, or enema. The purpose of fecal transplant is to replace good bacteria that has been killed or suppressed, usually by the use of antibiotics, causing bad bacteria, specifically Clostridium difficile, or C. diff., to over-populate the colon. This infection causes a condition called C. diff. colitis, resulting in often debilitating, sometimes fatal diarrhea C. diff. is a very serious infection, and the incidence is on the rise throughout the world. The CDC reports that approximately 347,000 people in the U.S. alone were diagnosed with this infection in 2012. Of those, at least 14,000 died. Some estimates place that number in the 30,000 to 50,000 range, if the U.S. used the same cause of death reporting methods as most of the rest of the world. Fecal transplant has also had promising results with many other digestive or auto-immune diseases, including Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohn’s Disease, and Ulcerative Colitis. It has also been used around the world to treat other conditions, although more research in other areas is needed. Fecal transplant was first documented in 4th century China, known as “yellow soup”. It has been used for over 100 years in veterinary medicine, and has been used regularly for decades in many countries as the first line of defense, or treatment of choice, for C. diff. It is customary in many areas of the world for a newborn infant to receive a tiny amount of the mother’s stool by mouth, thought to provide immediate population of good bacteria in the baby’s colon, thereby jump-starting the baby’s immune system. Fecal transplant has been used in the U.S., sporadically since the 1950's, without much regulation. It has gained popularity in the U.S. in the past few years, although experts estimate that total number of treatments to date in the U.S. remains below 500 patients. In late spring of 2013, the FDA announced it was classifying fecal matter as both an Investigational New Drug (IND) and a Biologic, and that only physicians currently in possession of an approved IND application would be allowed to continue performing fecal transplant. This resulted in less than 20 physicians in the U.S. being allowed to perform fecal transplant. There was a groundswell of opposition from physicians and patients, and on June 17th, 2013, the FDA reversed their position, and announced that qualified physicians could continue to perform FMT for recurrent C. diff. only, with signed consents from patients and tested donor stool. This has resulted in more and more physicians beginning to perform fecal transplant, but there are still only limited numbers serving the large population needing the treatment. There are also many patients who do not have a donor to assist them. And there are many patients who have never even heard of this treatment, even though the success rate for treatment of recurrent C. diff. is estimated to be well over 90%. In all documentation, dating back to 4th century China, there has never been a single , serious side effect reported from fecal transplant. Fecal Transplant is a low-cost, low-risk, highly effective treatment. It is not currently covered by most insurance companies, as it is still classified as an experimental treatment.

CRH O’Regan System – Non-Surgical Hemorrhoid Treatment

http://www.IndyGastro.com CRH O’Regan System – Non-Surgical Hemorrhoid Treatment The CRH O’Regan hemorrhoid treatment technology works by cutting off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid, causing it to shrink after the band falls off in a few days. You may not even notice when this happens. • Fewer than 5% of patients have a recurrence within 2 years • Takes less than 1 minute • Less than 1% complication rate — much safer than traditional banding With the unique banding system, you won’t feel pain or need to take valuable time off work and life. Hemorrhoid treatment with the CRH system is even covered by most insurance plans. The CRH O’Regan System is considered more than 99% effective in treating hemorrhoids.
