Summary of "A Single Small Bowel Hemangioma Detected by Video Capsule Endoscopy in a Patient Presenting with Iron-deficiency Anemia - Two Case Reports."

Hemangioma of the small intestine is a rare vascular malformation which mostly presents as occult gastrointestinal bleeding and iron-deficiency anemia. Patients are often asymptomatic except of fatigue due to anemia. Hemangiomas can arise anywhere in the luminal gastrointestinal tract, with jejunum as the most commonly involved site. They are very hard to recognize mostly due to their localization. Video capsule endoscopy and balloon-assisted enteroscopy have very much improved preoperative diagnostics and made major contribution to establishing the diagnosis - which was very difficult in the past and almost all cases were diagnosed during or after the operation. Surgical resection is still the conventional treatment modality, although with the improvement of endoscopic therapeutic interventions (endoscopic mucosal resection, argon-plasma coagulation) there are more therapeutic possibilities.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Non-invasive, endoscopic imaging by use of VIDEO CAPSULE ENDOSCOPES to perform examination of the gastrointestinal tract, especially the small bowel.

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.

Used with articles which include video files or clips, or for articles which are entirely video.

Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).

A form of interactive entertainment in which the player controls electronically generated images that appear on a video display screen. This includes video games played in the home on special machines or home computers, and those played in arcades. (McGraw Hill Encyclopedia of Science & Technology, 7th ed, v19, p223)
