Summary of "Negative video capsule enteroscopy - what's the next step?"

Video capsule endoscopy (VCE) is a reliable noninvasive method for examination of small-bowel mucosa. However, it has some limitations. The aim of this article was to review the approach in patients with negative VCE. It is clear that a negative VCE should be interpreted based on the indication. In suspected small bowel bleeding (SSBB), patients with ongoing/recurrent overt bleeding, or occult bleeders who experience significant declines in hemoglobin after a negative VCE should proceed small bowel study; on the other hand, patients with occult SSBB and only mild-moderate anemia should be managed with supportive care. In inflammatory bowel disease, a normal VCE has a very high sensitivity and negative predictive value. In small bowel tumor suspicion there is a high risk of false negative results, so another imaging modality should be considered. In polyposis syndromes, if VCE is negative, patients should continue screening within 2-3 years.
