Providing diagnostic and therapeutic interventions, lower gastrointestinal endoscopy is a salient investigative modality for ischemic bowel disease (IB). As studies on the role of endoscopic timing on the outcomes of IB are lacking, we sought to clarify this association.

The role of very early (≤12 hours) endoscopy in nonvariceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding is controversial. We aimed to compare results of very early and early (12-24 hours) endoscopy in patients ...
Optimal management of patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) requires assessment of disease activity-usually by endoscopy, which is invasive, costly, and not risk free. We performed a systematic review...
Malnutrition is a frequent condition among hospitalized patients and a factor of increased risk of postoperative complication.
Pan-enteric capsule endoscopy (PCE) is effective for assessment of small intestinal and colonic Crohn's disease (CD) in pediatric patients. We aimed to determine whether PCE can be used to monitor muc...
Endoscopy is the best means of finding early stage of upper gastrointestinal diseases, especially early cancer and benign ulcers. Currently, most people still undergo upper gastrointestina...
Patients who require gastric endoscopy, including the patient population* excluded from the phase III controlled clinical study of NPO-11, will receive an intragastric single dose of NPO-1...
Acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) is a common cause for attendance to the Emergency Department with a wide range of clinical severity, ranging from insignificant to life-threate...
RATIONALE: Screening tests may help doctors find cancer cells early and plan better treatment. It is not yet known whether endoscopy every 2 years is more effective than endoscopy only as ...
The objective of our study was to compare the safety and efficacy of oral midazolam during pediatric endoscopy.
Procedures of applying ENDOSCOPES for disease diagnosis and treatment. Endoscopy involves passing an optical instrument along either natural body pathways such as the digestive tract, or through keyhole incisions to examine the interior parts of the body. With advances in imaging, endoscope, and miniaturization of endosurgical equipment, surgery can be performed during endoscopy.
Methods to determine in patients the nature of a disease or disorder at its early stage of progression. Generally, early diagnosis improves PROGNOSIS and TREATMENT OUTCOME.
Visualization of the heart structure and cardiac blood flow for diagnostic evaluation or to guide cardiac procedures via techniques including ENDOSCOPY (cardiac endoscopy, sometimes refered to as cardioscopy), RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; TOMOGRAPHY; or ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
A species of gram-negative, spiral-shaped bacteria found in the gastric mucosa that is associated with chronic antral gastritis. This bacterium was first discovered in samples removed at endoscopy from patients investigated for HELICOBACTER PYLORI colonization.
Earlier than planned termination of clinical trials.
