Issue Date: 2020
Citation: Rev Esp Enferm Dig.2020;(112)1:23-26
Abstract: this study aimed to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of the Endofaster® for the detection of Helicobacter pylori. during upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, gastric juice was aspirated to perform an analysis using the Endofaster®. This test was considered as positive when the ammonium concentration was > 67 ppm, negative when 67 ppm, negative when among the 86 patients enrolled in the study, the Endofaster® result was positive in 23.7%, negative in 54.7% and weakly positive in 11.6%, whereas infection was detected via histology in 38.4% of patients. The accuracy was 81.4%, with a Kappa value of 0.57. the Endofaster® could be useful to perform a rapid diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori infection (area under the curve = 0.81).
