  1. How do clinicians practicing in the U.S. manage Helicobacter pylori-related gastrointestinal diseases ? A comparison of primary care and specialist physicians.

    Article - En anglais

    Objectives 

    We sought to examine the extent to which physicians recognize H. pylori as a causal agent in peptic ulcer disease or as a potential cofactor in other gastrointestinal diseases, and to observe how this knowledge has influenced diagnostic and therapeutic practices.

    Methods 

    We used a national mail survey in the U.S. between February and May of 1996, querying 5994 U.S. physicians (family/general practitioners [FPs], internists [IMs], and gastroenterologists) selected at random from three different membership databases of professional associations.

    Results 

    The response rate was 52%. More than 95% of physicians who treat symptoms empirically would prescribe acid suppressant therapy rather than anti-H. pylori therapy.

    Between 43% and 66% of physicians, varying in frequency by medical specialty, would treat the infection in H. pylori-positive patients with nonulcer dyspepsia.

    In confirmed peptic ulcer disease, between 88% and 100% of physicians would treat the H. pylori infection, depending on the physician group and whether or not the presentation of an ulcer was recurrent.

    Although 103 distinct anti-H. pylori regimens were reported, 89% of the gastroenterologists and 70% of the primary care physicians (PCPs) used combinations of antimicrobials with reported cure rates of at least 80%. Conclusions : General knowledge regarding H. pylori-associated diseases was widespread among primary care physicians and gastroenterologists.

    However, anti-H. (...)
