Rome Criteria III
By Hamed S. on 09. March 2017 for Irritable Bowel Syndrome

It would have been useful to go over the Rome III criteria to have an appreciation of the diagnostic criteria. Moreover, it would be extremely beneficial to cover the red flags

 
Need to expand on complications
By Hamed S. on 09. March 2017 for Ulcerative Colitis (UC)

For example no mention of primary scelorising cholangitis, need for colonscopy after 8 yrs of active disease and subsequent colectomy if premalignant lesions identified. Also no mention of toxic megacolon. It would have been good to discuss the hierarchy of management in these patients

 
Role of biopsy?
By Hamed S. on 09. March 2017 for Celiac Disease (Sprue)

A superficial talk about an important contributor to malabsorption. I think it would have been good to discuss why we need to assess for the prescence of IgA to begin with. What the role of HLA is in the disease. Moreover, the importance of biopsy as well as the long term complication of celiac disease include osteoprosis, neurological impairment and enteropathy associated T-cell lymphoma.

 
Can be improved
By Hamed S. on 09. March 2017 for Helicobacter Pylori Infection

It would would have been good to further elaborate on dx testing and in which clinical circumstances one would be more appropriate over the other. Also with the increasing incidence of resistant organisms I feel the lecture didn't adequately outline appropriate second line management. Also the error regarding PPI which was flagged by another listener
