Number of meta-analyses: 2

Project Description:

Engh Marie Anne is a newly-graduated medical doctor and her main interest is in gastroenterology. She has performed a systematic review and meta-analysis regarding the prevalence of gastrointestinal bleeding in pancreatitis. She started this project before the Translational Medicine PhD program as a project student and she has already finished her manuscript. Her second project is a network meta-analysis regarding the efficacy of different needles used for endoscopic ultrasound-guided tissue acquisition of pancreatic masses. Her last project will be a third meta-analysis examining the use of contrast-enhanced endoscopic ultrasound during tissue acquisition of pancreatic masses. Both studies aim to improve the diagnostic process during tissue acquisition in the pancreas, aiding clinicians in choosing equipment, decreasing the risk of re-intervention, and the need for costly processes.
