The AGA clinical guidelines and education committees have collaborated to bring you a new, interactive education program. Step up now to test your knowledge on key recommendations from the AGA clinical guideline on management of gastric intestinal metaplasia (GIM)

For example…

A 64-year-old Caucasian women is referred to you for dyspepsia which has not responded to once daily proton pump inhibitor. She is otherwise healthy and has no family history of GI diseases. You perform an upper endoscopy. No ulcers are noted and you perform two biopsies of the antrum and body. The biopsies show no Helicobacter pylori but do demonstrate gastric intestinal metaplasia without dysplasia. What would you recommend next?

  1. No further surveillance of gastric intestinal metaplasia
  2. Repeat EGD in six months with similar biopsies of antrum and body
  3. Repeat EGD in six months with extensive mapping biopsies of the stomach
  4. Repeat EGD now with extensive mapping biopsies of the stomach
